Phil Neville: 'Zlatan Ibrahimovic has carried Manchester United'

Jose Mourinho's side extended their unbeaten Premier League run to 21 matches, and most importantly bolstered their top-four hopes, with a comfortable 3-0 win at the Stadium of Light.

"We reacted to the results of yesterday", Mourinho said.

Injuries to Phil Jones and Chris Smalling leave Mourinho mean Shaw is likely to feature in a big week for United, with the trip to Anderlecht for Thursday's Europa League quarter final followed by Chelsea's arrival at Old Trafford on Sunday. We gave away a poor goal and I thought we needed to get a lot closer. "It's good for him to have a rest", Mourinho said.

Koeman said he was pleased with his team's performance particularly the displays of Lukaku and Barkley, who had come in for some criticism after the Merseyside derby.

In the Manchester United win, it was once again veteran Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic who provided the inspiration for Jose Mourinho's side, scoring the opener and setting up a late goal for Marcus Rashford.

John Wall leads Wizards to playoff win
Atlanta offense lags behind Washington's up-tempo attack, but both teams finished among the league leaders in forcing turnovers. But Washington is also different from years past with the ascension of John Wall , Bradley Beal , and Otto Porter.

"Of course you can not move the same as 10 or five years ago, even 15 years ago, but the older, more experienced, more intelligent, you do not waste so much energy on things you do not really need". Against a team that is sad, if you score before then it's hard for them to react.

Sunderland played with 10 men for more than 45 minutes after Sebastian Larsson's controversial red card for a challenge on Ander Herrera.

Sunderland remains bottom having now failed to score in its last seven games, 10 points adrift of safety.

"We have to fix our own faults first but I certainly didn't think the decisions helped us today", he told reporters. "These are the players available at the moment and, when I look to the others one, I just expect Valencia to be ready to play and no more". Whoever we speak about will be in the headlines because he plays in Manchester United and obviously everybody wants to play. The coach is the boss, he decides who plays and what is best for the team. Scoring goals is a problem but no, I don't think the players have accepted relegation. "I don't want to make out it's the referee's fault but he (Larsson) gets the ball, he touches the ball, and there's no contact at all. We'll keep going until it's mathematically impossible to stay up".
