This is what Sunderland need to secure Premier League survival - David Moyes

This is what Sunderland need to secure Premier League survival - David Moyes

The Black Cats had a period where it seemed as if they were on the brink of mounting a serious survival fight but they were rudely brought back to Earth by a re-energised Southampton side who thrashed them 4-0 in their last Premier League outing.

Up to conceding the goal Sunderland had done a good job of restricting their hosts by making the game attritional and scrappy and Everton gradually succumbed. "I'm an Everton supporter so to see us finish higher than them would be great. We know we are strong, but it's football and we need to keep the momentum".

It equalled Duncan Ferguson's club record for Premier League goals, with the Belgium global reaching the 60-goal mark in 129 matches, 110 fewer than Ferguson.

On the afternoon Romelu Lukaku equalled Duncan Ferguson's Premier League goal record for Everton, Ronald Koeman insisted the striker can offer more to his team.

"We are happy with the three points", he told reporters.

I think it's well established at this stage that Romelu Lukaku isn't the worst, in fact lately he's been looking like one of the best.

"While we were 1-0 down we were always in chance in the game".

"I've been speaking to Duncan about it and he has been mentioning it to keep me sharp and to test me a bit which is fine", said the Belgian.

"Sunderland have been in a lower state than this and come from behind and I still believe there's a run - we can win three of four games somewhere - and we are going to have to do that".

David Moyes, returning to Goodison for the second time since departing the club, has now lost all four games against his former team. "His actions mean we might not have to pass the ball back to the goalkeeper and we can push up as a team". We are not getting him enough service but it is because we are not getting enough good ball further up the pitch.

"I was not trying to take the mickey out of Bournemouth, it was just more the enjoyment of the game".
