Week after week, there is no improvement in Sunderland’s situation. Their distance to get out from the relegation zone is widened to 10 points. With 1 point from last 6 matches, they are almost certain to go down this season.
On the other hand, Manchester United’s chances of finishing inside top four is dealt with a bitter blow after back-to-back home draws. They dropped one position to 6th in the standings with 4 points separating them from the top four teams.
Manchester United are unbeaten in the last 20 Premier League matches. However, 10 of them are draws out of which 8 came at home. Since 6 of 8 away games in the series are wins, it is certain that they pose a bigger threat while playing outside Old Trafford.
The Black Cats registered their last Premier League victory away at Crystal Palace on 4th of February. They are yet to win a home match in the calendar year 2017 with the 6 matches seeing 3 draws and 3 losses. They also failed to score in the last four matches at the Stadium of Light.
