Sunderland have lost 22 times versus Manchester United in the Premier League.

Jermain Defoe has not found the back of the net in his last six PL matches against United.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has netted eight goals in his last 7 PL matches away from home.
"We've relied on Jermain a lot and I hope he has another half dozen before the end of the season, but others have to score as well," said David Moyes.
"I think it’s a good feeling to know we don’t lose many matches, that we have a fantastic run of 20 games unbeaten in the Premier League," Mourinho said.
