Sunderland boss Gus Poyet feels they’re capable of upsetting Manchester United today on Wearside.

Poyet has called for his side to repeat last season's unexpected victory over Manchester United when the two teams meet on Sunday.

"There is always the possibility of a miracle or something unique because of the way we play in England, and that makes it really special. It’s the scenario where everyone can beat anyone else.

"When Van Gaal was at Barcelona, it was very, very difficult for a bottom team to go to the Nou Camp and beat Barcelona. It happened once every 10 years.

"‘But we talk about those unique games every season in England, where there is a shock result.

"That makes this league so special and attractive to everyone around the world."
