Betting Tip: Sunderland +1.00 @ 11/10 with ladbrokes

It’s admittedly difficult to fancy a team who have won just three of their twelve matches at the Stadium of Light this season.

However, Sunderland are a chunky price to beat Manchester United on Saturday, with Sam Allardyce’s team coming from two goals down to draw at Anfield last weekend.

Previously to this, they have created numerous chances when losing at home to Manchester City to illustrate that they were along the right lines and still have a fighting chance of remaining in the Premier League.

They have thirteen games to make up that four-point deficit, although Norwich’s recent slump has handed Sunderland a favour, with Wahbi Khazri and Dame N’Doye among those players who were recruited in January.

United are fifth in the table although they have only won five of their thirteen away matches this season so we’re happy to swerve the odds-on quotes here.

David de Gea continues to thrive between the sticks, although it’s a mixed bag in front of him and who would have thought Jesse Lingard would be the bright shining light in attack right now?

The England hopeful is looking to score in his third game running although there’s no way the Red Devils should be such overwhelming favourites considering that a Champions League spot is slipping away from them.

Sunderland will get on the front foot if they can and cause a few problems in front of a packed Stadium of Light. We reckon they can edge it but will take them on the handicap as a shrewder move.
