Gus Poyet insists that his Sunderland team are "desperate" to play against Manchester United following a run of three unbeaten results.

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet has admitted that his players are "desperate" to take to the field again following a three-match unbeaten run.

The Black Cats travel to Old Trafford to play Manchester United on Saturday after picking up points against Manchester City, Chelsea and Cardiff City.

"The players are desperate to play again and go on and keep winning," Poyet told reporters. "The feeling is great. We need to make sure we take into consideration everything we've done, but knowing that there's plenty to do. It's going to be a special game for everybody."

Sunderland are out of the relegation zone on goal difference with three games left to play.
