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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
