Martin O'Neill's side have collected just two points from their last five fixtures and remain stuck on one victory for the season.

Unsurprisingly, a sluggish start to the season has the Black Cats perched just three points above the drop zone.

Things do not look like getting any easier this weekend, with Fulham unbeaten in five and full of goals, but the mood within the camp remains upbeat ahead of a trip to the capital.

"There were a lot of positives against Everton (in a 2-1 defeat last weekend), and we've got to take them into this weekend because it's a big game down at Fulham," Sessegnon told the Shields Gazette.

"It's another chance for us to get that win we need.

"We've had a full week of training to prepare, and there's more to encourage us going forward into the next few games.

"If we had come away with a 1-0 win at Everton, it would have been a massive boost for us. We played a good match, and we were all disappointed we weren't able to come away with three points again.

"But we created far more chances at Everton, and let's hope we can do the same at Fulham."

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.
