Steve Bruce travels to Old Trafford on Boxing Day desperate for his first win over former club Manchester United.

Bruce has never managed to win against his former mentor Sir Alex Ferguson, and Sunderland have gone 42 years without a victory at United.

Now Bruce is hopeful his side can cause a similar upset to the one they achieved over Chelsea earlier in the season as they claimed a stunning 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

"I have tried hard [to win at United] and not had one yet, and we will keep trying," he said.

"To be fair, there are a few managers out there who have probably witnessed it - certainly nobody has beaten them this year, have they?

"We know what to expect, it will be difficult. But I always enjoy going back,

even if I do come back with my backside kicked.

"For me, a lot of teams are beaten in the tunnel. You must, must go and take

part in the game; you must go and have the courage to take the ball and take

them on, and if you do that, then you have got a chance.

"Even then, you have still got to play to your maximum. Let's be fair, they

don't lose many at home.

"But it's a great place to go and play. If you have anything about you at all,

these are the games that you should enjoy playing in.

"Seventy-odd thousand at Old Trafford - fantastic, that's what you play

football for and that's where you can go and show your skills.

"Last year, we played very well. To be fair, we have played very well at home

against them twice as well, so let's hope we can maintain it."
