Ryan Giggs enjoyed a fantastic managerial debut when Manchester United cruised to a 4-0 victory at home to Norwich, although last season’s champions failed to follow this up with three points against the Black Cats on Saturday.

Sebastian Larsson’s 30th minute goal was enough to claim all three points for Gus Poyet’s team who have performed something along the lines of a Great Escape after previously claiming victory at Stamford Bridge, although Giggs was left puzzled by yet another insipid performance at Old Trafford.

Giggs told Sky Sports: “I’m just disappointed, more than angry. We just didn’t show that quality that we showed last week, especially in the final third. When you do that you come unstuck in the Premier League.

“Manchester United is a big club. The form hasn’t been good enough this year. I’m sure there will be players coming in, quality players. We need to improve and do better next season.”

“I just didn’t think that there was that concentration today when the passes really mattered.

“When you’ve got to break open a defence, play that key pass, or concentrate on a finish, it just wasn’t there.

“I said last week we want to make it (Old Trafford) a fortress, as it always has been a difficult place to come. This season that has been the problem, our home form hasn’t been good enough.

“The quality wasn’t there. Once Sunderland got that first goal they got everyone behind the ball and counter-attacked on us, but we had enough possession to create more chances than we did.

“Manchester United is a big club. The form hasn’t been good enough this year. I’m sure there will be players coming in, quality players. We need to improve and do better next season.”
