EPL: Man United beat 10-man Sunderland 3-0

Benjamin Button, a fictional character created by celebrated American writer F Scott Fitzgerald, was born with the physical characteristics of an elderly man and died as an infant boy. Today was a different game compared to the last game.

Victory saw United close to within four points of Manchester City, who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualifying berth and have played a game more than Mourinho's side.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised his full-back Luke Shaw, despite withdrawing the 21-year-old in the 61st minute of the club's comfortable 3-0 away win over struggling Sunderland.

Mourinho on the run-in: "After Manchester City and Liverpool won, if we hadn't won today it would have nearly been mathematically impossible. They left us in a position of "yes or no?' It was 'yes".

The Manchester United striker smashed the opener during Sunday's 3-0 victory at Sunderland and his stunning 20-yard strike was his 28th goal of the season. "These are the players available at the moment and, when I look to the others one, I just expect Valencia to be ready to play and no more".

Rashford capped a comfortable win in the 89th minute when United broke and Ibrahimovic teed up the England youngster to fire a fizzing shot into the bottom-left corner from an acute angle.

Moyes' overall thoughts: "I'm disappointed we haven't take anything from the game and I think there was mitigating circumstances for that, but ultimately we're not here to blame referees". "It's good for Sergio Romero to play before Anderlecht".

"The older you are, the more experienced, the more intelligent and you don't waste energy on things you don't need. You are quite solid mentally, hard to beat, fighting against hard circumstances".

But with Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal first leg in mind, Shakespeare made five changes to his starting lineup, resulting in a lack of cohesion that Everton wasted no time in exploiting.

"Yes. I was expecting that because I knew the reasons why he was coming", Mourinho told reporters in December.
