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...

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.

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

Louis van Gaal insists Angel Di Maria needs more time to adapt to the Premier League despite substituting the British record signing at half-time during Manchester United's 2-0 win over Sunderland.

Di Maria, 27, endured a difficult opening 45 minutes at Old Trafford on Saturday before being replaced for Adnan Januzaj at the interval, who played a part in Wayne Rooney's second goal of the game.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was pleased with his team's performance in the second half.

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.
