With a tough run-in to come, United can’t afford anymore slip-ups, as they are sixth in the table, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.
And Lawrenson thinks playing at Stadium of Light might relieve some of the pressure, as they might be given more room to play in a creative fashion.
“It is a problem that affects them more at Old Trafford where the opposition is always more defensive minded, but United move the ball so slowly that teams can always get back and fill the holes.
“United have had no runners from midfield trying to get into the box and this Red Devils side do not play in the same way we became used to seeing.
“By the end of their draw against Everton on Tuesday they were just chucking the ball forward.
“Being away from home might help them on Sunday, however.
“Sunderland may well start with a defensive outlook, but they need to win and ultimately they will give United more room.”
