Manchester United have kept their hopes of a Premier League top-four finish alive following a 3-0 victory over over 10-man Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The Red Devils went ahead after 30 minutes of play on Sunday when Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired a powerful low shot into the bottom corner of the net to make it 1-0.

Things then got even worse for the host as Sebastian Larsson was sent-off for a foul on Ander Herrera just before the break.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan then doubled United's advantage with an angled shot just one minute after the restart. And substitute Marcus Rashford sealed victory for his side with his first goal in 22 matches.
