    Klopp: Sunderland are the most defensive team I have ever seen

    The Reds left it late to net the two goals that finally broke the deadlock, and their manager was not amused by the visitors’ unwillingness to push forward.

    Jurgen Klopp described Sunderland as “the most defensive team I ever saw in my life” after his Liverpool side scrapped to a 2-0 win at Anfield.

    Black Cats boss David Moyes said beforehand his team would “park the double-decker bus” on Saturday and they certainly adopted a defensive mindset, although it almost paid dividends […]

    Coutinho kill joy: Liverpool’s win overshadowed by serious injury

    The Reds returned to the top of the table with a 1-0 victory over David Moyes’ side, but lost Philippe Coutinho to injury at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

    It was the result Liverpool had wanted, toiled for, and been patient enough to force. Sunderland’s “double-decker bus” had its tyres punctured by a curler into the far post by Divock Origi, before James Milner drove a dent into it from the penalty spot.

    The Reds, who are now 14 games unbeaten on the […]

    Liverpool 2-0 Sunderland: Stubborn Black Cats undone by Origi and Milner

    Liverpool defeated Sunderland on Saturday, edging past a stubborn Black Cats side.

    Liverpool started brightly against the Black Cats, knowing that it would take a big effort to get past a side with little intention of attacking in numbers.

    However, John O’Shea, Lamine Kone, and co. held firm and frustrated the Reds in the first 20 minutes, before managing the odd foray forward as the game went on.

    The only trouble that Jurgen Klopp’s side came in to was mostly caused by themselves, […]

    Allardyce could make shock Sunderland return after England exit

    Disgraced former England manager Sam Allardyce could make a quick return to Premier League strugglers Sunderland after leaving his post with the national team.

    The 62-year-old was forced to quit as England boss after incriminating footage of him advising people he thought were agents on how to get around the Football Association’s rules on third-party ownership.

    Allardyce only managed one game with the Three Lions, having left Sunderland just before the start of the season to replace Roy Hodgson.

    However, a Chinese consortium […]

    I rejected Sunderland ‘crazy’ offers – Anichebe

    Victor Anichebe has revealed that he turned down “crazy offers” to join Sunderland on a free transfer.

    The 28-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Black Cats last month after being released by West Bromwich Albion in the summer.

    The striker has revealed that he was close to moving abroad, but the lure of remaining in the Premier League and playing under David Moyes was too much to turn down.

    “There were a lot of offers to go all these kinds of places, […]

    OFFICIAL: Sunderland sign Anichebe

    The Nigeria international, 28, will be reunited with David Moyes on Wearside after sealing a temporary move away from the Baggies.

    Sunderland have confirmed they have signed former Everton and West Brom striker Victor Anichebe on a deal until the end of the season.

    The Nigeria international had found himself out of favour at the Baggies, after featuring just 10 times in the Premier League last term without scoring a single goal.

    And he admitted that the chance to reunite with David Moyes, […]

    Liverpool’s challenge for a top-four spot continued to gather pace as they claimed a third win in four league games by beating 10-man Sunderland.

    Lazar Markovic had a strong penalty claim turned down before poking in a shot to put the visitors in front.

    A volley from the Serbian also hit the crossbar as the Reds wasted a number of chances, while Sunderland had Liam Bridcutt sent off for two bookings.

    Substitute Frank Lampard headed a dramatic winner as Manchester City defeated Sunderland to go level on points with leaders Chelsea.

    A sublime 22-yard striker by Yaya Toure and Stevan Jovetic’s clever close-range finish put City firmly in control. But the hosts conceded a two-goal lead for the second game in a row as Jack Rodwell’s header and Adam Johnson’s penalty levelled the scores.

    Adam Johnson scored in the 90th minute to give Sunderland their fourth successive win over Newcastle in the Tyne-Wear derby.

    The winger placed his shot past Jak Alnwick following an excellent counter-attack by the Black Cats.

    They also went close through Steven Fletcher, whose shot hit the post, while Connor Wickham wasted chances.

    Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez was twice denied by Costel Pantilimon, who also saved from Moussa Sissoko.

    There was barely time for the home side to test the Romanian keeper again after […]

    Premier League Sunderland 1-1 draw with West Ham

     

    West Ham maintained their place in the Premier League’s top four by coming from behind to draw at Sunderland.

    They trailed to Jordi Gomez’s penalty, given when Sunderland’s Adam Johnson fell under James Tomkins’ challenge.

    That decision angered Hammers boss Sam Allardyce but Stewart Downing levelled from 18 yards via a deflection.

    Jozy Altidore’s glaring close-range miss proved crucial for Sunderland, who drop to 15th, and the visitors’ Aaron Creswell had a one-on-one chance saved.

    Here are what the both managers had to say:

    Premier League Liverpool 0-0 goalless draw with Sunderland

     

    Liverpool failed to build on their midweek triumph at Leicester City with a drab home draw with Sunderland.

    Steven Gerrard was rested, perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s must-win Champions League clash with Basel, but his side struggled without their captain.

    Wes Brown and Connor Wickham wasted decent chances for the well-drilled visitors.

    Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling had a late penalty appeal turned down but Sunderland were good value for a draw.

    It took the home side 17 minutes to win their first corner and […]
