Sports Mole previews Wednesday's League Cup semi-final second leg as Manchester United look to overturn a 2-1 deficit at home to Sunderland.
Manchester United will be hoping to overturn a 2-1 deficit on Wednesday night when they host Sunderland in the second leg of their League Cup semi-final tie.
David Moyes's side were narrowly beaten at the Stadium of Light two weeks ago as Fabio Borini's penalty proved to be the difference between the two teams.
Despite United's disappointing form in the Premier League, reaching the final of this competition would lift some of the doom and gloom currently around Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Sunderland's improved form will see the Black Cats arrive at the Theatre of Dreams with plenty of confidence.
Gus Poyet's team are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions and recently came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with Southampton in the league.
Nemanja Vidic is suspended for the hosts, while Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are also expected to miss out as they recover from their respective injuries.
Sunderland have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match.
Man Utd: WLLLWL
Possible starting lineups
Man Utd: De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Fletcher, Januzaj; Hernandez, Welbeck
Sunderland: Mannone; Bardsley, Alonso, Brown, O'Shea; Cattermole, Larsson, Ki, Johnson; Borini, Altidore
Sports Mole says: 2-0
