Saw the match last night and was really pleased with the outcome. Manchester United kept their top-four hopes alive as they strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory at Sunderland, who had Seb Larsson controversially sent off. When I say controversially, I really mean it. He did not deserve that straight red for the studs-up on Pogba and Herrera but the referee seemed to think differently. Zlatan put United 1-0 up on 30 minutes. Half-time had a result of 0 – 1. Just 45 seconds after the restart, United were 2-0 up through Henrikh Mkhitaryan. His goal was a really nice one with a lot of fancy footwork. and I was elated. It did not look as if the Sunderland players had touched the ball at all when the second-half started! Substitute Marcus Rashford added a third goal after Ibrahimovic’s assist. And that is where it was last night. Sunderland – 0, Manchester United – 3
