Manchester United host Sunderland tonight at Old Trafford in the Capital One Cup, a must win game for David Moyes if United are to stand a chance of taking home silverware this year.

Sunderland caused a shock upset at The Stadium of Light and lead 2-1 on aggregate heading into the second semi-final leg thanks to a Fabio Borini penalty in the second half. However at home and with Old Trafford crowd behind them United are expected to produce a performance that will put them into a Capital One Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley in March.

The Black Cats have not won at Old Trafford for 46 years and United will be hoping to keep it that way.

However they will be without captain Nemanja Vidic after he was red carded against Chelsea at the weekend and Patrice Evra is also likely to miss out after limping off at Stamford Bridge. Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are also likely to miss out.

Steven Fletcher will miss out for Sunderland due to an Achilles injury, while Keiran Westwood and Carlos Cuellar both start on the bench.
