Poyet bemoans Sunderland luck

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet felt his side needed more luck after missing several chances in their 0-0 draw at West Ham.

Despite having more possession and the lion's share of the chances, the Black Cats couldn't break the deadlock and missed an opportunity to secure a vital three points.

And Poyet was left to rue what might have been as his side remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.

"We deserved to win the game. We don't get any breaks, we are getting nothing," he told Sky Sports.

"I said it two weeks ago when we played Villa, and this was away.

"Today from the first minute we were having chances, having shots, one-on-ones, and when you are at the bottom, you need to take those chances.

"Today we have 19 shots, and how we don't score, I don't know."

The result means that Sunderland remain bottom of the league, and are without a win in their last five matches.

"We need the wins playing like that. I am waiting for an ugly win," Poyet added.

"When we play well, and don't win it is a little bit tough, but I need to be pleased with the way we played."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
