Javier Hernandez used to be the king of the late goal but he missed his lines and the target in the 80th minute as United fell to the surging Black Cats.

Apparently a big win against Norwich isn't a harbinger of everything being better again for Manchester United. Ryan Giggs' second test as manager didn't go quite as well as the first despite a second consecutive relegation-threatened opponent. Missing Wayne Rooney through a minor groin injury United struggled to generate an attack and when a late chance came for Chicharito, he skied it well over the bar.

Slaven Bilic received an unexpected boost following Michail Antonio's return to light training on Tuesday.

The West Ham winger was one of three casualties during the home defeat by Leicester City [GW29], with initial reports suggesting Antonio could miss up-to a month. But, the 26-year-old has made excellent progress during the international break, and he could rejoin the main group ahead of the trip to Arsenal in seven days. Elsewhere, the news regarding Pedro Obiang and Winston Reid is not so good. Only Reid has a chance of playing again this season after Obiang was ruled out until July having undergone ankle surgery. The New Zealand captain could be back in late-April. Diafra Sakho and Angelo Ogbonna are battling to save their seasons due to respective back and knee injuries, however, Mark Noble will be contention to face Hull after recovering from the dead leg he initially sustained against Chelsea almost a month ago.

Manchester United will not be too disappointed that they received no transfer fee for Bastian Schweinsteiger's move to the MLS.

The World Cup winner and former German international announced his move to Chicago Fire on his Twitter account on the 21st of March, but that move was subject to him acquiring a visa and passing a medical. All of these formalities have been completed by the central midfielder at this point, and he will arrive at O'Hare Airport today to fanfare. From his former club Manchester United's point of view, the deal has worked out well too. Both club and player feared that there would be little interest in Schweini by the summer transfer window and so by letting him go now, Man Utd saved £6 million plus in wages as per his contract which ran until 2018, which would have been a huge figure for a player exiled from the first team squad by manager Jose Mourinho.

Out-of-favour Manchester United striker and record goalscorer Wayne Rooney may not find it easy to get a move to the MLS.

The United skipper has been reduced to a fringe player in 2017, with just one PL start to his credit since the new year. After losing his place, he has been linked to his boyhood club Everton, along with teams in both China and the MLS. However, according to Houston Dynamo's president Chris Canetti, MLS teams may not queue up to acquire the England international to try and recreate the hype around David Beckham's move a decade ago: "David Beckham brought worldwide relevance to Major League Soccer. He was a trailblazer for other players to look to come over and he opened a lot of eyes... I'm not sure if Rooney is as big a brand - just because Beckham was so pop culture". He clarified further saying: "But with David Beckham, you don't need to be a football fan to know who he is and what he represents."

Aaron Cresswell has taken a firm stance in support of Slaven Bilic, amid speculation the manager could be replaced at the end of the season because of the club's worrying run of form.

The pressure is on Slaven Bilic to right the ship at the London Stadium after a disappointing run of three successive defeats. In the wake of the 3-2 home defeat to Leicester City on March 18, which dropped the Hammers to 12th in the table, a report emerged that Bilic could be replaced at the end of the term by Reading manager Jaap Stam. Although West Ham have not won since February 4, Cresswell insists the dressing room is backing Bilic. "If you ask any of the players, they would say the same, we are fully behind him and fully supportive of him," the left-back told Sky Sports News HQ. "Hopefully we can turn it around and take that pressure off everyone."

Leicester City striker Shinji Okazaki scored his 50th goal for Japan in a 4-0 2018 World Cup qualification victory over Thailand on Tuesday.

Okazaki concluded Leicester City's international representation on Tuesday in fine fashion. The 30-year-old celebrated his 108th international appearance with a diving header midway through the first-half to become just third Blue Samuari to score 50 goals international goals. Okazaki is the 55th male player to hit the half-century of international goals but is one of only nine active internationals on the list, including Cristiano Ronaldo (70), Lionel Messi (58), Wayne Rooney (53) and Neymar (51).

Liverpool was dealt a heavy blow on Tuesday with the news that midfielder Adam Lallana will miss around four weeks.

The star midfielder sustained a thigh injury in the late stages of England's World Cup qualifier against Lithuania on Sunday, and the injury has become progressively worse over the last few days. Now Lallana is set to miss up to a month and has already been ruled out of the club's next three fixtures over the course of the next 10 days, including the Merseyside derby against Everton this weekend. The former Southampton standout is one of Liverpool's top producers with seven goals and seven assists in the Premier League this season. However, Jordan Henderson could slide right back into the starting lineup if deemed fit following a foot injury.

Chris Smalling is unlikely to feature against West Brom on Saturday after the United centre-back was pictured with his right knee in a brace.

Smalling was released from England duty on Friday due to an unspecified injury and returned to the Aon Training Complex for further tests. There has been no official word from the club, but the latest images suggest Smalling will be sidelined for weeks as opposed to days. The brace in question is typically used to limit flexion and extension of the knee joint and to support the knee from lateral and medial movement, possibly indicating ligament instability. For those of you who prefer the glass half full, Smalling may be using the brace as a precaution until a full and thorough assessment can be carried out, but the early signs do not look promising. In addition, United are expected to provide an update on teammate Phil Jones anytime now, after he sustained a toe injury during England training seven days ago.

Dimitri Seluk, the agent of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has raised more controversy with his recent comments.

Toure is entering the final months of his contract and, after reviving his career at Manchester City over the last few months, Seluk said he is in talks with clubs from Italy and Spain over a free transfer. However, Seluk said if Manchester United came calling he would negotiate despite the two clubs' rivalry: "Why not? Jose Mourinho is a very good coach. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was together with Yaya in Barcelona...We waited until March 15 for what Manchester City will say but until now Manchester City don't say anything. Before March, we didn't negotiate with anybody because Yaya does a lot with Manchester City, so we waited. But we cannot wait until the last minute, until June and have no negotiations with anybody."

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp put to rest rumors of unrest surrounding the future of Emre Can at the club.

Reports suggested Can was in a contract standoff with the club after demanding the club double his current wage package of £35,000-a-week with Juventus monitoring the 23-year-old's current contract situation. But with more than a year still left on his current deal, Can is expected to sign a new deal with talks ongoing, according to Klopp. "It actually makes no sense to talk about it, but because I obviously heard there was a story out there… yes, we are in talks, what can I say? They are good, because Emre likes to be here. We really like him as a person and as a player. So there are talks, there is nothing else to say."

Thibaut Courtois will miss Belgium's friendly against Russia on Tuesday due to a minor hip problem but is not expected to miss anytime for Chelsea.

Courtois played the full 90 minutes but sustained a hip injury in the 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with Greece in Brussels on Saturday. However, according to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur, Courtois is expected to be fit for Chelsea's clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday. Terreur tweeted: "Thibaut Courtois won't play against Russia due to a minor hip problem. Expected to be fit against Crystal Palace, though." In the event Courtois is unable to recover in time for this weekend, Conte will likely hand Asmir Begovic his first league start of the season.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy scored his sixth goal for England to help them to a 2-0 2018 World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.

Vardy was introduced on the hour mark for Jermain Defoe and needed just six minutes to make mark his, as the Foxes No.9 tucked home a close-range in the 66th minute to wrap up all three points. The goal was Vardy's fourth in his last five matches across all competitions, having scored a brace against Liverpool on February 27 and the winner during Leicester's 3-2 victory over West Ham prior to the international break. Vardy, who has scored eight league goals this term, will look to extend his form when Leicester face Stoke City at home on Saturday.
