Comments:

League position: 20th Sunderland became the fourth team in Premier League history to fail to score in seven consecutive games and the first since Derby County in 2007. The Black Cats' run without scoring in the Premier League had now been extended to 675 minutes (11 hours and 15 minutes). Seb Larsson was shown a red card for the first time in his club career (416th appearance). Sunderland manager David Moyes said: "I don't want to blame referees for my position and us losing. Today the result was helped by the referee. The red card was a decision that went against us. When we went down to ten men it made it a lot harder. The hardest thing as a manager is losing and we're losing a lot. The players care and want to do well and we're not doing as well as we should be."

Zlatan Ibrahimović had now scored 250 goals in 308 appearances since his 30th birthday in 2011. He scored 232 goals in 528 appearances before he turned 30. United had now scored three goals in each of their last three away games in the Premier League. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "We want to fight in the Premier League until it is mathematically impossible. The Premier League we cannot win, but Europa League we can."
