Sebastian Larsson: Has no doubts that Sunderland will stay up

The Black Cats went down to a 1-0 loss at the KC Stadium on Saturday to remain five points from Premier League safety after ten games.

They have collected just four points so far this season and Larsson knows their performances have not been good enough.

However, he is in no doubt that Sunderland will improve and stave off the threat of relegation.

"We are not kidding ourselves because we know where we are in the league," said Larsson.

"But, if you are asking me if we'll get out of trouble, then I'll say there is no question that we will.

"We are massively disappointed with this defeat. Our performance in the first half and the result were not good enough.

"I have no doubt we'll get out of this situation - it's a matter of when, not if.

"Our fans were fantastic and backed us all the way - all we can do is apologise for not picking up the points for them."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
