Man Utd had to come from behind to post the victory over the German champions, but a goal each from Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick was enough to secure the victory for United.
After a run of good results, Manchester United again find themselves top of the Premiership ladder, with 18 points from seven games played. The Red Devils share the top of the table with rivals Chelsea, with the Blues trailing by a one-goal aggregate difference.
Michael Owen limped off in the win over Wolfsburg with a groin problem and was initially expected to be out for at least three weeks, but the good news is that the injury is not as bad as first appeared, and the former Newcastle striker could be back in action by as early as October 17.
Manchester United were victors in both meetings between the teams last season, with the Man Utd vs Sunderland fixture at Old Trafford ending in a 1-0 victory and the reverse fixture finishing with a 2-1 scoreline.
Whilst Sunderland's home form this season has been impressive, with three wins from four matches, their away form has left something to be desired, with only a single win from three fixtures.
Sunderland have enjoyed success this season against the likes of Bolton, Wolves, Hull, and Blackburn, but success against Manchester United at Old Trafford would require something else entirely.
The come-from-behind victory may have boosted United's confidence even further, and the defending Premier League champions should post a relatively comfortable win over Sunderland on Saturday.
