All over at Old Trafford. Easy win in the end for Manchester United, who are top of the Premier League.
- Man Utd XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Darmian; Schneiderlin, Carrick; Mata, Rooney, Depay; Martial.
- Sunderland XI: Pantilimon, Jones, van Aanholt, O'Shea, Kaboul, Cattermole, M'Vila, Johnson, Toivonen, Lens, Borini.
Sunderland pass their way through midfield but Jeremain Lens's effort is deflected and does no harm.
Four minutes of added time and the final whistle cannot come soon enough for Sunderland.
United winger Ashley Young has another go at Billy Jones but this time finds Juan Mata at the back post, who takes a touch and fires in from close range.
Wayne Rooney wants another, as he bursts forward down the centre of the pitch but is tackled by Younes Kaboul.
Yann M'vila lets go from fully 30 yards but it is high and wide as the Sunderland fans decide it's time to call it a day.
Ashley Young twists and turns down the right, he beats Billy Jones but Wayne Rooney cannot get a foot on the United winger's low cross.
Booking for Lee Cattermole as he brings down Morgan Schneiderlin. Frustrating day for Sunderland midfielder, who has done his best but lacked backing from his team-mates.
Matteo Darmian bursts down the United left but his cross is cleared. Wayne Rooney has plenty of time to pass out right too.
Not sure we are facing a Sunderland fightback here. The game is dead and United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is carefully pulling the strings.
Good break from United as Wayne Rooney bursts down the left and pulls back for Juan Mata, whose shot from the edge of the box is well saved by Costel Pantilimon.
United substitution as Ashley Young replaces Memphis Depay, who has had a good game today.
So a whole division sets these two teams apart now. The Sunderland fans don't look too chuffed. Can their team turn this around? Not seen too much evidence of that happening so far.
Daley Blind is to make way for Phil Jones. Think the Dutchman is OK, as Jones comes on for his first Premier League appearance of the season.
Sunderland sub as Sebastian Larsson comes on for Ola Toivonen. Daley Blind is getting treatment for clash of heads with Steven Fletcher, but he's fine to continue.
Antonio Valencia twists and turns on the right and crosses for Anthony Martial, whose header is just over. Tony to Tony.
Michael Carrick comes off and is replaced by Bastain Schweinsteiger.
Oh what a waste. Anthony Martial collects the ball up front, shrugs off a challenge and puts in Memphis Depay, who is clean through on goal but sticks it straight at Costel Pantilimon. Should have been 3-0.
Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial are providing all the smart work in and around the box, darting this way and that.
The Old Trafford faithful are a lot more content now, applauding Anthony Martial for his endeavour and happily clapping some neat tidying-up by Michael Carrick.
United looking for a third. First a cross is slightly too high for Anthony Martial and then the teenage striker cannot get on the end of Juan Mata's cut-back. The Spaniard might have been advised to strike himself.
Manchester United's David De Gea is the saviour again. This time it is Patrick van Aanholt who gets in around the back but when the Sunderland left-back approaches the United goal, De Gea saves with his feet again.
BBC Match of the Day commentator
"Manchester United are not quite playing with the flow and artistry that we come to associate with them."
Former Arsenal defender on Final Score
"To see Manchester United be top of the table tonight, it's quite remarkable, and for City now it seems the wheels are coming off for them."
Manchester United happy to knock the ball around now. Antonio Valencia is seeing plenty of the ball on the right but has not quite delivered so far when it has been given to him.
Jermain Defoe sits as an interested spectator on the Sunderland bench, although he's reported to have had a hamstring problem.
The Sunderland corner is cleared at the near post. Wasteful.
Sunderland pressing higher up the pitch now and win a corner.
The free-kick is clipped to the back post, the ball arrives in a bundle of players, drops to the floor and Ola Toivonen pokes towards goal from about two yards out. But guess what? David De Gea saves from point-blank range.
Sunderland are going to come out of their shell now and Steven Fletcher is brought down by Morgan Schneiderlin as he breaks forward. Free-kick to Sunderland.
A couple of goals and the picture looks a lot more rosey.
Billy Jones hacks Memphis Depay down. Sunderland look shot.
What must Dick Advocaat be thinking? Two goals conceded in two minutes either side of the break. Wayne Rooney ends his longest Premier League goal drought and is now joint-third with Denis Law on the list of United's all-time leading league scorers with 171 goals.
Calamity for Sunderland as Anthony Martial bursts into the box and cuts back for Wayne Rooney, who bundles the ball over the line. That's his first goal in 12 league games, most welcome for the United striker
Sunderland make a change and Steven Fletcher is on for Adam Johnson. We are under way.
Whatever you think of the performance at Old Trafford today, this must make quite nice viewing for Manchester United fans. Manchester City were beaten 4-1 by Tottenham earlier today.
If Sunderland are going to find a way back into this game, they need to find a way of getting near the United area. They have been penned back in their own half for most of the first 45 minutes and only managed 15 touches in the final third of the field (see graphic on the right). United, who have spent most of the game camped outside the Sunderland box, have made significantly more (see graphic on the left).
That goal also takes Manchester United to the top of the Premier League as it stands.
That's 11 of Sunderland's 14 Premier League goals conceded before the break. Memphis Depay now has four goals this season.
