Bent convinced Sunderland can stun Man Utd

Sunderland striker Darren Bent is convinced they can shock Manchester United this weekend.

Bent, who already has eight goals this season including both strikes at Liverpool last Saturday, cannot wait to face Alex Ferguson's United.

He said: "As long as we take the great positives from what we did against Liverpool into the Manchester United game I am sure we will be OK because at home against the big boys we have been playing so, so well.

"Everyone seems to lift their game and the crowd lifts us and we seem to get the results we want to get, so if we can continue with the performance from Liverpool and take it into the United game, then it should be a good, good game.

"I can't remember the last time we lost to a so-called big team at home."
