Manchester United vs Sunderland, Capital One Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread

manchester united sunderland Manchester United vs Sunderland, Capital One Cup Semi Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread

All eyes will be on Manchester United’s match against Sunderland in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup today given the news that Manchester United have placed a £35million bid for Juan Mata via a third party. The Chelsea midfielder didn’t train with Chelsea today, so eagle-eye viewers will be trying to see if Mata is in the stands, or if David Moyes will drop any hints about whether the deal is close to being finalized.

Of course, there’s a football match to be played between two sides that are one step away from a League Cup Final at Wembley Stadium against Manchester City on March 2. Will it be Sunderland or United that will be victorious over the course of the two legs today?

Starting line-ups: 

Manchester United: De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Buttner; Januzaj, Carrick, Fletcher, Kagawa; Welbeck, Hernandez

Subs: Lindegaard, Evra, Jones, Cleverley, Giggs, Young, Valencia

Sunderland: Mannone, Bardsley, Alonso, Brown, O’Shea (c), Cattermole, Colback, Ki, Johnson, Borini, Fletcher

Subs: Larsson, Gardner, Celustka, Altidore, Giaccherini, Vergini, Ustari
