LIVE streaming: Sunderland vs Man United - Watch League Cup semi

January 7, 2014 By Abdullah Zubair
After being knocked out of the FA Cup by last season’s Capital One Cup Winners Swansea, Man United will be hoping they can have more luck in the league cup where they face Sunderland in the first leg of the Capital One Cup Semi-Final.

Preview: Moyes looking for an instant response

In the midst of a disappointing season which has seen United drop to the seventh place in the league table, things got from bad to worse when the Red Devils got knocked out of the FA Cup by last season’s League Cup winners Swansea City.

The match was quite even until a rash challenge by full back Fabio Da Silva on Jose Canas earned the Brazilian his marching order and the Swans made full use of the man advantage they had with Bony securing the winner in the dying moments.


The defeat was United’s second consecutive with the Red Devils having lost to Tottenham Hotspur in their last Premier League outing with the same score line. 48 hours after the heart break at Old Trafford United now find themselves playing in the Semi-Final of a competition which might represent their only chance of silverware this season and David Moyes has stressed on just how important it is for his side to get the upper hand in the first leg.

"Our approach to Sunderland had to have the FA Cup game in mind because it was two matches in 48 hours," the Scot told reporters.

"It has always been vital for us to win every game and get to every final if we can.”

"There is a job in front of us in every competition we enter. We have got to overcome Sunderland in a two-game match to reach the final.”

"It will be a difficult game and difficult to judge exactly how the first leg will go. But we will try to get ourselves to the Cup Final if we can."

Despite their low position in the league, Sunderland will definitely be the more confident side of the two given their good form as of late. The Black Cats have lost just once in their last five matches and in their last outing scored a 3-1 victory over Carlisle United to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Poyet’s men pulled off the upset of the competition when they defeated Chelsea in the competition’s Quarter-Final with Ki Sung-Yueng grabbing a scintillating winner in the dying moments of extra time. Their recent performances have lifted the spirits at the Stadium of Light and manager Gus Poyet has claimed that he is not ‘scared’ of the defending English champions.

"No, I don't think so, no," said the Uruguayan when asked if his side were scared of United.

"Seriously, no, because it's not about being scared or not.”

"I have got different experiences against Manchester United - with Chelsea, we were pretty good against them, and with Tottenham, we were not good enough, and I don't think we were more or less scared.”

Whereas Man United have been shambolic at their own turf they have produced decent performances away from home and the Black Cats will have to be wary of the Red Devils who will surely be looking to strike back after a disappointing performance over the weekend.

David Moyes will continue to be without first choice strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie as well as Phil Jones, Rafael, Nani, Marouane Fellaini and Ashley Young all of whom missed the home fixture against Swansea. Rio Ferdinand will also join the aforementioned players on the sidelines after picking up an injury in the match against Swansea, whereas Fabio Da Silva will serve suspension after picking a red card in the FA Cup match.

Sunderland captain John O'Shea will not be able to face his former side as he nurses is shoulder injury, goalkeeper Keiren Westwood (shoulder) and defender Carlos Cuellar (thigh) will also miss out on the league cup tie.
