Manchester United go into this afternoon’s clash with Sunderland knowing that only a win will do in their quest to make the top four of the English Premier League this season.
With games in hand on teams currently in the UEFA Champions League qualifying positions, United still have an outside chance of sneaking into the top four in the tail-end of the season.
A visit to struggling Sunderland represents a chance to pick up a huge three points but supporters aren’t very confident after seeing the team Jose Mourinho has named.

The likes of Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini have faced the ire of the United fans this season after a number of poor displays but they start again and it hasn’t gone down well.
What’s more, Fellaini has been named captain in a move that has both baffled and angered fans.
Is this a master stroke from Mourinho or is their season going fully off the rails?
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his team…
Wow Fellaini captain kill me now ????????

I genuinely think Mourinho has lost the plot… How are you going to make Fellaini captain & not start Carrick ????

Mourinho's smart. First team bottled every chance of getting top 4, and so now is going all out for Europa
