Gardner, playing as the extra man in midfield thanks to Celustka’s inclusion at right-back, pounced, steering a good finish inside the far post to give the home side a fifth-minute lead. Jones and Vidic were the fifth central defensive partnership that Moyes had tried in as many games. Jones made a nervy start, caught in possession by Gardner in the ninth minute, only to make an excellent recovering slide tackle in the penalty area. Vidic looked unsettled throughout by Jozy Altidore’s strength. Januzaj’s selection was the most eye-catching of the visitors’ four changes. The teenager, who also qualifies to represent Albania, had been spared the long mid-week trip to play Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine because he is not registered in the Champions League. A natural number 10, he started on the left, with Nani on the right, but the fact that both players shot narrowly wide from inside the D within the first 20 minutes showed they were quite happy to come inside. Januzaj spent more time infield than along the touchline, leaving Patrice Evra to provide the width. Nani ought to have equalised when Evra’s deep cross cleared Valentin Roberge’s head, but he steered his volley wide. Bottom-of-the-table Sunderland were the equal of the away side in the first half, though, and Giaccherini their best player. David de Gea made a terrific right-handed save when the 5ft 4in (163cm) wide man found himself in a generous amount of space from Adam Johnson’s cross and the Italian also shot over in the 44th minute after Johnson spread panic in the United defence. Keiren Westwood saved Rafael da Silva’s powerful shot well in the 41st minute, but it was a rare moment of first-half action for the Sunderland goalkeeper. Januzaj blotted his copybook in the 48th minute when he flopped over the merest hint of an outstretched leg from John O’Shea. Instead of getting a penalty, he was shown a yellow card. But he soon made it up to the away fans.
