Deserved Point or Smash-and-Grab? Moyes and Puel Disagree after Southampton 1-1 Sunderland


Sunderland picked up their first point of the season today, after coming minutes away from stealing all three at Southampton. 


With the injury crisis still rampant on Wearside, David Moyes acknowledged the effect of Wednesday’s excursions on Sunderland’s legs.

“They started well, maybe [because] we’ve nearly ended up playing all our players in the midweek game and they didn’t have a game. That showed in the early part in the game and in the end part.”

“We’re having difficult days and difficult weeks getting players on the pitch. Considering we’ve played near enough the same players as on Sunday and midweek we’ve done remarkable to play the three games and get a point.”

The threadbare squad included five changes from last Sunday’s defeat to Middlesbrough, including Jordan Pickford coming in for Vito Mannone after the Italian suffered elbow ligament damage this week.
