MANCHESTER, England -- Three thoughts on Manchester United's 2-0 win vs. Sunderland in the Premier League.

1. United labour to another win

It was yet another day when all would seem perfect at Manchester United if you looked just at the result and avoided the actual performance. There remains this deep disconnect between the two, as well as the feeling that it has to snap at some point.

At the same time, it is to their huge credit that they keep persevering, keep going and keep staying in those Champions...

Referee Roger East insists Wes Brown was correct Sunderland player sent off

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Wayne Rooney (66') Manchester United 1-0 Sunderland
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno recaps Manchester United's sloppy victory against Sunderland highlighted by Wayne Rooney's brace.

Referee Roger East has told the body responsible for officiating standards in English football it was not a case of mistaken identity when he sent off Sunderland's Wes Brown at Manchester United.

East believed both Brown and John O'Shea made contact with Radamel Falcao in the incident that resulted in the penalty from which Wayne Rooney scored to put United on their way to a 2-0 win.

The Senegal international was the subject of interest from the Middle East during the winter transfer window, but the Magpies hierarchy supported Carver's desire to keep him and were rewarded when he struck to secure a 1-0 victory at St James' Park with his 11th goal of the season.

Carver said: "His goal ratio is fantastic...

Young and Rooney star while Di Maria struggles for Manchester United

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno recaps Manchester United's sloppy victory against Sunderland highlighted by Wayne Rooney's brace.

Manchester United were sloppy, disjointed, sterile and dull but still managed to squeeze a victory out of an accommodating Sunderland side.

The decisive moment of the match came when Old Trafford old boys John O'Shea and Wes Brown combined to give United a penalty, after which the latter was sent of when the former should have been.

Prior to that second half breakthrough and despite having James Wilson and Juan Mata on the bench, Louis van Gaal was, ludicrously, set to turn to Marouane Fellaini to...
