Anton Ferdinand scored an injury-time own goal to gift Manchester United a Premier League point in a 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Old Trafford.

Two weeks after Michael Owen's last-gasp winner against Manchester City, Ferdinand could not get out of the way of an off-target effort from Patrice Evra to grab United a point and deprive the Black Cats of their first Old Trafford win since 1968.

In truth, it lacked the thrill factor of a fortnight ago. And so poor was United's general performance that questions are bound to be asked about their ability to retain their Premier League title.
