  • That's it. Manchester United return to winning ways thanks to Adnan Januzaj's double. The 18-year old was the star of the show as his second half double cancelled out Craig Gardner's early strike. Relief for David Moyes but Sunderland's misery continues. 1-2.

  • United clear the corner and Cleverley almost breaks but with an open goal, Giaccherini manages to force him wide and puts it out for a throw. Seconds remain.

  • The ball is towards Westwood but De Gea punches clear. There's a goalmouth scramble and a penalty appeal for handball before another corner is awarded. Westwood stays up.

  • Smalling is forced to head behind after Wickham's flick on. Sunderland corner. Westwood is forward.

  • O'Shea launches a free-kick towards the head of Altidore but it eventually rolls into the arms of De Gea.

  • There will be five minutes of added time with United seemingly in control of this one.

  • Gary Neville names Adnan Januzaj as his Man of the Match and it's hard to argue.

  • Big chance for United to seal the three points as Valencia plays van Persie through on goal, only for the striker to poke wide with the outside of his boot when he should have hit the target.

  • The visitors look to be in control in the dying minutes as Carrick and Rooney both exchange passes.

  • More injury worries for United as Rooney looks to have taken a knock. He's still on his feet but doesn't look to be moving too comfortably.

  • Chris Smalling replaces the injured Rafael for Manchester United.

  • Vidic does well to clear after Larsson guides Cattermole's ball across goal. That could have gone anywhere.

  • Jones is forced to put the ball behind for a Sunderland corner after Giaccherini attempted a cross.

  • Rafael sees his effort collected by Westwood after cutting inside and shooting on his left foot from the edge of the box.

  • O'Shea has his name taken after bringing down Welbeck who was driving forward at speed and looking to burst through on goal.

  • Sunderland are still searching for another way through, they're not giving in just yet, but their final ball has often been disappointing this half.

  • De Gea smothers the ball after Larsson tried to thread the ball towards the feet of O'Shea who had stormed forward from defence.

  • Rafael goes into the book for the foul on Colback.

  • Colback wins a free-kick inside the Sunderland half as Rafael brings the full-back down right in front of Chris Foy.

  • Welbeck and Valencia do enter the field with Nani and Januzaj making way.
