Red Devils Support Black Cats' Relegation Fight
You can only suffer your first-ever loss at the Stadium of Light once.
And Manchester United picked an opportune time to do it. For the hosts, that is.
The sputtering Red Devils went to boring mode again, to the delight of Sunderland and its fans, as the Black Cats picked off a precious trois points in a 2-1 decision.
Must've been cause for more joy in the Mackem nightclubs.
Louis van Gaal’s crew rise to the occasion against big brands but fall to ineptitude against small clubs.
Wahbi Khazri used a misfired missile to damage the United barracks.
Even the tank known as David de Gea couldn't save it.
United’s only threat machine, Anthony Martial, got the visitors back inn the hunt with a class finish:
A future Ballon d'Or winner, for sure.

De Gea stops everything, even his teammate’s clearance off the post.
So the mumbling around Old Trafford will only grow in volume. But the Stadium of Light's denizens are lit up tonight.
