Giaccherini insists Sunderland can shock Man Utd

Sunderland midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini says they can shock Manchester United tonight.

The pint-sized Italian international believes a big upset could be on the cards.

Giaccherini said: "They faced Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. Ukraine is a long way to travel and that can affect your ­performance in the next game.

"I saw this at Juventus. It was never easy when we played Champions League football in the week and then three days later had a league game.

"United have not started as well as they wanted and if we can pick up a result it will give everyone such a lift."
