Fabio Borini: On-loan Sunderland striker feels he has proved his worth

Borini has scored six goals in 28 appearances for Sunderland this season following his loan move from Liverpool after netting just twice in 20 games for Brendan Rodgers' side since his 2012 arrival from Roma.

The Italian has scored in both of Sunderland's derby wins over Newcastle this season, and was also on target against Chelsea and Manchester United in the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the Capital One Cup respectively.

He continued his cup exploits by opening the scoring for Sunderland in last weekend's 3-1 defeat by Manchester City at Wembley in the final.

"That means I am made for a big team," Borini is quoted in the Daily Mirror regarding his goals in key games this season.

"We will see what will happen until the end of the season, and try to beat the big teams and the small ones, and then let's see in the summer.

"It was a great feeling scoring in the cup final. Two or three times what I normally feel for a goal.

"A great feeling, all emotions, especially against a big team when no one expected us to be in front against Manchester City at Wembley."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
