SUNDERLAND, England (AP) -- Manchester United was condemned to a third consecutive 2-1 loss on Tuesday as Sunderland won the first leg of their League Cup semifinal to add to manager David Moyes' troubles.

Fabio Borini scored from the penalty spot in the 65th minute to ensure Sunderland has the edge going into the second leg at Old Trafford on Jan. 22.

Sunderland took the lead when United veteran Ryan Giggs inadvertently bundled the ball into his own net just before halftime when under pressure from Phil Bardsley.

Nemanja Vidic headed United level in the 52nd, but a comeback was thwarted by United midfielder Tom Cleverley fouling Adam Johnson to concede the penalty.

At the start of 2014, United has also lost to Tottenham in the Premier League and Swansea in the FA Cup.
