Moyes reveals New York City trip for Sunderland... and invites Trump

Doyle BarkerFeb 12, 2017

However, it was to be Long who had the final say, replacing Gabbiadini late on and rounding off the scoring in a comfortable 4-0 win with a fine finish in stoppage time. I don't know for the moment.

David Moyes rued a missed opportunity for his rock-bottom Sunderland side as they collapsed to a 4-0 defeat at home to Southampton on Saturday.

The Italian was also just the second Southampton player to score in his first two Premier League games for the club, after Henri Camara in February 2005.

Sunderland (from): Mannone, Mika, Jones, Manquillo, Oviedo, Love, O'Shea, Kone, Lescott, Denayer, Ndong, Gibson, Larsson, Borini, Pienaar, Januzaj, Gooch, Honeyman, Defoe, Maja.

Their away form needs improving and they'll be aiming to avoid a fourth straight loss on the road here.

The visitors will be without centre half Virgil Van Dijk, as well as frontman Charlie Austin and creative winger Sofiane Boufal.

Southampton: Forster 6, Cedric 6, Stephens 7, Yoshida 6, Bertrand 7, Romeu 7, Davis 6, Ward-Prowse 6, Redmond 6, Tadic 8, Gabbiadini 8.

There hasn't been a goalless draw between these sides in any competition since March 1978 - each of the last 37 games has seen at least one goal scored.

Paul Tierney, one of the Premier Legaue's most restrained refs, takes charge of this one.

Having blown relegation-rivals Crystal Palace apart and taking points off of high-flying Tottenham, David Moyes' side will be full of confidence this weekend as they welcome Southampton to the North East.

Only Hull (77) have faced more shots on target in home Premier League games this season than the Black Cats (76). They're unbeaten in two games and have kept clean sheets against Spurs and Crystal Palace.

David Moyes hopes a mid-season trip to NY will provide his Sunderland players with the boost they need to secure Premier League survival and has invited president Donald Trump to join the jaunt.

This equals Southampton's biggest away win in the top flight.

Manolo Gabbiadini, signed from Napoli last month, was credited with a first-half double yesterday.
