Why I hope United beat Sunderland: A Manc final would be better to watch, a cup final might extend Moyes’ reign and City will win at Wembley

Can’t believe that in my whole life Sunderland have never made it to a Wembley cup final. Don’t let me down tomorrow!

Roy Keane returned to Old Trafford for the first time as Sunderland manager. Big game.
Adnan Januzaj has looked increasingly dangerous for Man Utd this year and has grown with confidence with each game he has played. One to watch.
