IT’S 45 years since Sunderland last won at old Trafford. Do we dare to dream?, writes Peter Quinn.
The midweek cup games are brilliant and Sunderland have taken this competition seriously. It has captured fans’ imaginations as we have beaten Southampton, Chelsea and Manchester Utd – cup fever has taken over on Wearside!
The atmosphere around Old Trafford will be amazing as we dream of a trip to Wembley, 22 years since our last cup final visit.
Borini has said we are going to win and not to defend – and I am really happy about that. But do we have to take our chances.
Steven Fletcher ... this your moment.
Manchester United will be right for it, and we have to remain disciplined all game. I believe in Poyet and his system, and I believe he will lead Sunderland to glory.
Prediction: Man Utd 1 Sunderland 1
