May 6 at 17:00 in Hull at the stadium “CS Stadium”, Hull City will take Sunderland in the match of the 36th round of the English Premier League. At the other end, Defoe wasted three excellent opportunities and passed 1000 minutes without a Premier League goal before a stoppage-time strike made the scoreline more emphatic for the Wearsiders.
Niasse said: “I was in a hard situation at Everton and I knew that it wasn’t me doing something wrong – it was just life and football is like that”.
How do you see the relegation battle playing out?
“We were thinking “please hold on” and Sunderland did us a favour but we have to go there next week”.
Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been a bright spot for the Championship-bound club.
Fabio Borini fired a shot over the bar for Sunderland inside 60 seconds and George Honeyman headed a good chance wide as the visitors made a bright start.
“I thought he played really well, ” Moyes said.
Second half goals from Billy Jones and Jermain Defoe condemned the Tigers to a damaging defeat and hand third bottom Swansea City a major lift ahead of their own tea-time clash with Everton.
Honeyman’s contract at the Stadium of Light expires this summer, but Moyes wants to keep him and confirmed there is an appearance-related contract extension clause.
Any attempt to wipe out tarnished records would have the opposite effect on clean athletes who would lose their hard-fought records in the purge, the 31-year-old American said. We had played well, even going back to Leicester, Watford, Bournemouth, West Ham – we had played well in the games and didn’t take anything from it, we didn’t score. He looks a better player for the Tigers than he ever did during his time at Sunderland in 2013-14.
And the World Cup victor showed his aerial strength again when rising above Phil Jagielka to meet the excellent Jordan Ayew’s far-post cross.
Pickford was only able to get a finger on Kamil Grosicki’s chipped cross but it was enough to ensure the ball did not fall kindly for N’Diaye at the back post and his untidy finish went wide.
“We’ve got a full week with no game next week, and we’ll speak to the players and I’ll try to get around to as many as I can next week, because the following week will be pretty busy with three games in eight days”, he added.
