Manchester United travel to face rock bottom Sunderland on Sunday with the two sides needing points for differing reasons.

Goals from Islam Slimani and Jamie Vardy secured a comfortable win for an improving Leicester team.
Manchester United were held at Old Trafford again, needing a late equaliser to draw with Everton on Tuesday evening.
Phil Jagielka opened the scoring, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s added time penalty extending United’s unbeaten run.
