Guardiola passes his first test

The Match

David Moyes seeks to end Sunderland's August hoodoo

David Moyes gave his reaction to Sunderland's defeat to Middlesbrough.

At the end of a week that started grimly with a 2-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough before getting slightly better with a League Cup win and the loan signing of Atletico Madrid's Javier Manquillo, new Sunderland manager David Moyes has a final chance at Southampton on Saturday to end his club's poor August record in the Premier League.

Six years have passed since Sunderland last won a league game in the first month of the season. Darren Bent's last-minute penalty against Manchester City put...

Sunderland's sinking feeling again as David Moyes faces crisis

David Moyes admits Sunderland's defeat to Middlesbrough is hard to take.

In some respects you have to hold a certain admiration for Sunderland's apparent commitment to having more or less the same season, year after year. The pattern goes: early season struggle, the manager leaves, his replacement saves them with varying degrees of panic, then it all starts again the following campaign.

There was a slight variation this year when Sam Allardyce left before the season started, to take the England job, but despite that departure from the usual script, the early signs suggest...

David Moyes suffers nightmare start to Sunderland career

Cristhian Stuani scores his second goal.
Cristhian Stuani struck twice as Middlesbrough inflicted David Moyes' first home defeat at Sunderland boss.

David Moyes saw his ramshackle Sunderland side beaten on his managerial debut at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, losing 2-1 to a disciplined but unexceptional Middlesbrough despite an energetic second half attempt to recover from a lamentable start.

Falling behind to Cristhian Stuani's fine goal, Sunderland then lost veteran defender John O'Shea through injury before conceding a laughably simple second from Stuani before half time.

The second half improvement was not enough. Patrick van Aanholt...

David Moyes' Sunderland era must kickstart with win over Middlesbrough

The ESPN FC crew discuss who will go down in the Premier League.

Sunderland's new manager David Moyes knows Sunday's match at home to Middlesbrough is one he must not lose. He is under acute pressure to win, even if his side's form against supposedly beatable opposition in recent seasons has been less than convincing.

But the early signs of Moyes' reign are encouraging, despite opening with a predictable defeat -- albeit in unfortunate circumstances as Sunderland lost 2-1 late at Manchester City last Saturday. He has made reasonable progress on transfers since...
