Manchester United balls: a critis at Old Trafford Sunderland can only dream of
Manchester United are in “crisis“. Well, that’s what the Daily Mirror says in its report on United’s build up to a home match against Sunderland. Man United are second in the Premier League. Sunderland are bottom.
The “crisis” at Old Trafford is that Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo are both injured, leaving United with “one fit left-footed defender” in the shape of Danny Blind.
If that’s a crisis, what are Sunderland suffering?
Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat sets the tone:
“If you have a draw there [Old Trafford], you have a great result… Normally United would beat us but we can give them a really tough time. That will happen, you will see.”
Crisis? No. This is normal service.
