When and where: The Barclays Premier League match kicks-off from the Stadium of Light at 10 a.m. ET. A live stream will be available via a subscription to FoxSoccer2Go.
Preview: For so much of the Premier League's 20 seasons Manchester United have been the dominant team, but on Sunday they go into their final league game knowing that even a win may not be enough to see them claim a 20th league title.
Level on points with Manchester City, but crucially with a significantly inferior goal difference, everyone connected with United inside the Stadium of Light will have one eye or ear on events back in Manchester where City take on Queens Park Rangers.
Yet United know that they first have to focus on taking care of business against Sunderland.
It won't be easy, but if we score first then maybe the City fans in the stadium will start to be nervous, United's Patrice Evra said, according to the official Manchester United website.
When you are nervous then you can rush things and you don't do things as well as you'd like. That's why we have to make sure we beat Sunderland.
I don't think City against Queens Park Rangers is an easy game. So, at the end of the day, we have to believe.
With the usual mind games in full swing, City boss Roberto Mancini has tried to incite Sunderland into a performance by suggesting that they will pose little opposition to United. With little to play for themselves this insinuation could lead to master motivator Martin O'Neil getting an extra few percent effort from his Sunderland players on Sunday.
Team News: Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown is not yet ready to make his comeback from a lengthy absence with a knee injury. Nicklas Bendtner should return to lead the line after starting on the bench against Fulham.
Danny Welbeck and Chris Smalling will both miss the game for United with injuries. Phil Jones is likely to start alongside Rio Ferdinand in defense, while Javier Hernandez should partner Wayne Rooney up front.
Sunderland (probable, 4-4-1-1): Mignolet; O'Shea, Kilgallon, Turner, Bardsley; Gardner, Cattermole, Colback, McClean; Sessegnon, Bendtner.
Manchester United (probable, 4-4-2): De Gea; Rafael, Jones, Ferdinand, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Young; Rooney, Hernandez.
Prediction: As Evra suggests, United's best chance to put pressure on City is to get out to an early lead. A feat that should be well within their reach against a Sunderland side that is without a win since March. Despite a possible desire to prove Mancini wrong, it is hard to see the Wearsiders suddenly igniting fresh impetus into a season that has long since been over in the minds of the players.
