Sunderland defender Donald Love insists his team will not feel any pressure when they take on Manchester United on Boxing Day.

The Black Cats go into the game on the back of a 1-0 win over Watford on Saturday, with the three points moving them up to 18th in the league table.

David Moyes’ men have lost three of their last five games but the former Everton chief wants one more win before the end of 2016, either against United or Burnley.

United have not tasted defeat in their last 10 matches but Love insists he and his team-mates fear nobody. Love, a former United youngster, insists Sunderland will attack at Old Trafford.

He told the Chronicle Live: “It will be a really hard game but we want to give 100 per cent for the fans.

Hopefully, we will win but either way we will give it our all, and hopefully the fans won’t be disappointed with our performance.

“We will target their weak areas and look to get at them. It is going to be a hard game but whatever team the manager picks will go out there and give 100 per cent for Sunderland.

“We won’t be fazed. This team has been through a lot already this season with the injuries and everything. We have stuck together throughout.

“Everyone is starting to see an improvement in our performances and results.” Mourinho’s men are 1.22 to win with the draw 6.50 while Sunderland are 13.00.
