    for Saturdays trip to Sunderland. Mondays 7-0 U21s victory over Norwich added to
    Van Gaals injury woes, with Phil Jones, Adnan Januzaj and Guillermo Varela all
    picking up knocks.But United will be looking to build on their recent
    improvement when they travel to Wearside, despite conceding a late equaliser
    against Chelsea last Sunday. Louis van Gaal has accused the media of inventing
    stories ahead of Manchester Uniteds Premier league game at Sunderland on
    Saturday Van Gaals side are six points behind bitter rivals Manchester City in
    their pursuit of a top-four finish, but have a chance to close that gap, if only
    temporarily, in the early kick-off at the Stadium of Light.A spirited fightback
    at Liverpool last time out has given Sam Allardyce cause for optimism, but just
    one win in four means the Black Cats remain 19th, four points from safety.Team
    news Sam Allardyce says Louis van Gaal must find out if Manchester United are
    planning to replace him Long-term United absentees Luke Shaw (leg), Marcos Rojo
    (shoulder), Antonio Valencia (foot), Bastian Schweinsteiger (knee) and Ashley
    Young (groin) remain sidelined.Striker Will Keane has been rewarded for his
    five-goal haul against the Canaries with a place in the match-day
    squad.Sunderland defender Younes Kaboul and striker Duncan Watmore are both out
    with ankle ligament injuries. Jeremain Lens is a doubt with a suspected hernia
    problem. Sky Sports News HQ reporter James Cooper explains what Manchester
    Uniteds latest finance records mean Billy Jones is struggling to shake off a hip
    injury and the game is likely to come too soon for midfielder Sebastian Larsson
    following his return to training following a long-term knee problem. Fabio
    Borini is available after missing the trip to Liverpool because of a virus.Opta
    statsSunderland have failed to score in eight of the last 12 Premier League
    matches against Manchester United and only once in each of the other four
    encounters.United have won 21 and lost just two of their 29 Premier League games
    against Sunderland.The Black Cats have never beaten Manchester United in the
    league at the Stadium of Light (D4 L9). Jermain Defoe applauds fans after
    Liverpool draw Wayne Rooney has been involved in as many Premier League goals in
    six games in 2016 (five goals, three assists), as he had in 33 games in 2015
    (six goals, two assists).Sunderland are on the longest current run without a
    clean sheet in the Premier League (11 games) while United have collected just
    six points from their last six Premier League away games (W1 D3 L2).Only Sergio
    Aguero (7) has scored more Premier League goals in 2016 so far than Jermain
    Defoe (6) and Wayne Rooney (5).Marouane Fellaini could make his 200th Premier
    League appearance in this match and would be only the second Belgian to reach
    this landmark in the competition after Vincent Kompany. Jamie Redknapp looks
    ahead to Chelseas Saturday Night Football clash with Newcastle before previewing
    the 3pm kick-offs. Mersons predictionManchester United have turned the corner,
    Ive been impressed. They looked really good at Chelsea and thoroughly deserved a
    draw at least. Sunderland, meanwhile, will have felt they did well against Man
    City, despite losing, and then they got a lucky draw at Liverpool if Im being
    honest. We will have to see whether the speculation surrounding Van Gaals future
    affects United but they seem to have turned the corner and I expect them to win
    at the Stadium of Light.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)BettingSunderland
    (4/1) are the biggest price of all home sides in Premier League action this
    weekend ahead of the visit of Manchester United (3/4) with the draw available at

    United 7/4 shots for a top four finish. United won this fixture 3-0 at Old
    Trafford earlier this season and are available at 7/4 to win to nil, while
    Sunderland are evens to win or draw in the Double Chance market. Jermain Defoe
    and Anthony Martial both to score is available at 17/2.Check out tips from our

    Hydro Flask Bestellen . I cant
    pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was
    with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly
    could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was
    calling the White Sox games. Just for little while, it seemed the almost
    impossible was becoming the merely unlikely.As Alastair Cook and Haseeb Hameed
    resisted for 50 overs, it seemed England really might be able to defy India in
    the sort of conditions English players grow up to fear. The last 10 overs - and
    most of all, that last ball - were a harsh way to wake from the dream.This has
    been an odd game. Whatever happens on the final day - and victory for India
    remains highly likely - England will leave Visakhapatnam encouraged by their
    performance. There seems every chance that this will turn out to be that most
    British of things: a heartening defeat. Really, it might be the most heartening
    defeat for years.Why? Because theyve proved (to themselves as much as any of us
    watching) that they can compete in such conditions. Theyve shown that they have
    the character and skill to cope with losing the toss and playing against good
    bowlers in turning conditions. And, just as importantly, theyve shown they can
    claw their way back into games from unpromising situations. You could make a
    strong argument that they have had the best of days three and four. Its just the
    damage inflicted on days one and two was too deep.They have learned several
    useful lessons, too. They have learned, or been reminded, they cannot afford
    even half a bad session in such circumstances. So the loss of their first five
    first-innings wicket before the end of the second evening - a couple of them to
    somewhat soft strokes - was a setback from which they have never been allowed to
    recover. The footwork has to be more certain; the techniques more solid. They
    cannot afford a bad hour here.And, while there are no easy answers to dealing
    with Virat Kohli - he has looked magnificent in this series - England will
    reflect on the chance he offered when on 56 in the first innings and know that,
    had they been better organised and had a better fielder than Adil Rashid in
    position for the hook trap, the whole complexion of this game might have been
    different. It was a fleeing moment, certainly, but that may well prove to be as
    good an opportunity as England find in this series. If they are going to win,
    they have to seize such moments.They may rue the tenth-wicket stand of 42 they
    conceded on Sunday, too. A target of 363 in 160 overs would, perhaps, have been
    scarcely less daunting in practical terms. But in terms of morale? Final-wicket
    stands drain and dispirit like little else. While England hardly bowled a poor
    delivery in the first 100 minutes or so of the day, when they took six for 64,
    they may reflect that, just for a few minutes, they then allowed their
    concentration to drift and were punished for it.Generally, though, since Jonny
    Bairstow and Ben Stokes resumed on the third morning, there has been much to
    admire about this England performance. Stuart Broad has never bowled better in
    India, Rashid has never bowled better in Test cricket and, for all the praise
    lavished upon Indias spinners, Rashid and Moeen Ali have better bowling averages
    and strike rates than R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja at this stage in the
    series.But perhaps it was the performance of Hameed that provided most cause for
    encouragement. For the second Test in succession, Hameed demonstrated a calm
    temperament in an unhurried display that belied his 19-years. It took an almost
    impossible ball, one that kept horribly low, to dismiss him.These were
    desperately tough circummstances for Hameed.dddddddddddd On a pitch offering
    turn and, most pertinently, variable bounce, he was tested in just about every
    way a batsman can be tested. Indias seamers examined his discomfort against the
    short ball and Indias spinners examined his ability to play the turning ball.His
    struggles against short-pitched bowlingt will have had fast bowlers around the
    world taking note. Whatever he achieves in the next few weeks, it is inevitable
    now that Hameed will be on the receiving end of many bouncers when he comes up
    against West Indies, South Africa and Australia. And they will almost always be
    directed at him on quicker, livelier tracks than this.There was talk of this
    potential weakness before he arrived in India. He was troubled by Surreys fast
    bowlers (Stuart Meaker and Mark Footitt) in the English summer and by Taskin
    Ahmed in Bangladesh.Here he was struck on the hand by the first delivery he
    faced - he later received treatment on his little finger, but the England camp
    played down any serious damage - after taking his eye off a fine, head-high
    bouncer from Mohammed Shami and took two more deliveries in the rib area. He
    wore a chest guard in this innings, but he may have a bruise or two for the rest
    of this week.But, whether he had been hit or not, he was right back in line for
    the next delivery. And whether hit or not, he was right forward to the next
    delivery as required. Theres no question of courage with Hameed, he is just
    learning to deal with that line of attack. The challenge confronting him might
    be compared to that confronting Ben Stokes and spin. Stokes overcame that
    challenge; how Hameed manages may well define how far he progresses in
    international cricket.There were, in all, nine deliveries that might reasonably
    be described as bouncers directed at Hameed. While his inclination seems to be
    to sway out of the way, he also ducked once and played the ball from in front of
    his face straight into the ground on other occasions. Short-leg was never in
    business and the two men out for the hook seemed utterly redundant. It was
    painful, but he survived.The manner in which he dealt with spin was even more
    impressive. Having been dismissed in Rajkot by Ashwin bowling around the wicket,
    he has resolved to watch the ball harder and be even more precise in his foot
    movement. He leaves the ball well outside off stump and gets further forward
    than most to smother the spin.While other batsmen - and not just young batsmen -
    might have become uncomfortable with the slow rate of scoring, Hameed looked
    supremely unworried. And while other batsmen might have allowed the match
    situation to play on their mind, Hameed seemed to enjoy the prospect of five
    sessions of crease occupation. Where else would he rather be?Every day, in every
    way (it was Hameed who was most insistent that England should utilise their
    review which resulted in KL Rahul being given out) he seems to be growing more
    comfortable with this level and the environment of the England team. This was a
    terrifically tough day and he came through it bruised but unbowed. It was
    another step forward in his development.It is for such reasons that, whatever
    happens on Monday, England will leave Visakhapatnam with spirits and heads high.
    They are learning and improving all the time. ' ' '
