The Red Devils head into their game against the Black Cats at Old Trafford on Monday looking to make it four wins on the spin in the Premier League.

Schweinsteiger has endured a frustrating time at Manchester United since Jose Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.

The World Cup winner is yet to make a single appearance in the Premier League for the Red Devils and his lack of first-team action is likely to lead to speculation that he could quit Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

However, the 32-year-old seemed to be keeping himself in high spirits nonetheless and send a festive message to his followers ahead of Monday’s game against Sunderland.

Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a great time with your families and friends.”
