Sunderland 1 Manchester United 1: Van Gaal´s uninspiring start continues

Louis van Gaal’s spluttering start to life at Manchester United continued as they drew 1-1 with Sunderland in the Premier League.

United, who lacked any fluency at the Stadium of Light, were fortunate to take a 17th-minute lead through Juan Mata.

However, they failed to take advantage as an unmarked Jack Rodwell headed in a first-half leveller on his home debut to earn Sunderland a point.

All eyes were again on the Dutchman after United began their campaign with a 2-1 home defeat to Swansea City last week.

As if to add to the pressure, all three of the club’s close-season signings – Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo – were unavailable on Sunday.

Yet few would have predicted the level of disjointedness on display as United struggled badly, particularly in defence.

EPL Results:

Hull City 1 – 1 Stoke City
Tottenham Hotspur 4 – 0 Queens Park Rangers
Sunderland 1 – 1 Manchester United
