Moyes: It's do or die for Sunderland at Leicester

Sir Alex Ferguson sat through Manchester United’s goalless draw with West Brom

But Moyes' reckons Jermain Defoe's worldwide recall and keeper Jordan Pickford's rise through the England ranks send out a positive message about Sunderland.

"They didn't really have any other real opportunities".

They had a chance to double their lead moments later, as Sunderland's high line was exposed when Doucoure sent substitute Isaac Success through on goal only for Pickford to race out of his goal and smother the shot from close range.

"There's an very bad lot of young players who are not playing games for English teams".

I think the Hornets will stop their slump at the weekend, however, unless Sunderland manage a massive improvement on their recent performances.

O'Shea believes Moyes has led the Black Cats in the right direction despite the club sitting bottom of the Premier League standings, with 10 games remaining in the season. "But we're not playing well enough, I'm not kidding anyone on".

"Walter Mazzarri insists he's "not too concerned" about their position in the table - lose this one and that view might have to change".

"I'm sure the club have been here before".

Two dead, tens of thousands stranded by Australia floods
Farmers moved livestock to higher ground, while others sandbagged property, desperately trying to stop floodwaters. Flood sirens sounded before dawn at Lismore when the Wilsons River surged over the town's levee.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

"At that point we were a goal down and we pushed for an equaliser but it wasn't to be".

The Sunderland goalkeeper was busy - as usual - and made some fine saves to thwart Watford in the first half.

"Just can't see how they're going to pull it off this time".

Sunderland's only win in 11 league matches was by a 4-0 scoreline at Crystal Palace on 4 February (D3, L7).

The Mackems have now failed to score in their last five games and have won only one of their last 14 games (all competitions).

Sunderland could go five consecutive top-flight matches without a goal for the first time since February 1982.

"It's new to me, but I don't want to have teams at the bottom of the league".
