Video: Manchester United 3 – 0 Sunderland (September-26-2015) EPL Highlights
Manchester United earned a comfortable victory over Sunderland with a decent if unspectacular performance.
Wayne Rooney ended his Premier League goal drought as Manchester United moved to the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The England captain’s first league strike for 1,000 minutes was sandwiched by efforts from Memphis Depay and Juan Mata as United leapfrogged Manchester City.
Louis van Gaal’s men headed into the fixture knowing victory would lift them to the summit following City’s 4-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur.
That scenario doubtless added to the frustration of the home supporters as United failed to craft a meaningful opportunity for much of the opening half.
Yet they still headed into the break ahead after Depay finished a fine move for his first league goal since joining United from PSV Eindhoven in the close season.
Rooney’s long-awaited goal came just after the break and Mata added a third late on to cap another miserable afternoon for the Wearsiders.
Yeah its great joy seeing the club moving to the top
