By on October 5, 2013

Manchester United take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday evening looking to get their title defence back on track.

The Red Devils slumped to a shock 2-1 defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford last weekend to leave them sitting 12th in the table, so need victory today to keep in touch with the early pace-setters.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Sunderland

Westwood, Celustka, Colback, O’Shea, Roberge, C’mole, Ki, Gardner, Johnson, Giaccherini, Altidore.

Subs: Cabral, Larsson, Wickham, Cuellar, Dong-won, Borini, Mannone.
