Manchester United beat Sunderland 3-1 at Eppleton Colliery Welfare and put distance between themselves and the Division 1 relegation zone.
Demi Mitchell, with a penalty, and Scott McTominay (pictured above) put Nicky Butt's side 2-0 up at the break and Devonte Redmond increased the lead in the 71st minute.
United's Regan Poole was shown a red card for his second bookable offence in stoppage time before Sunderland, for whom Jan Kirchhoff made his comeback from injury, pulled one back through George Honeyman.
