ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jermain Defoe (34') Sunderland 2-0 Burnley
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Connor Wickham (20') Sunderland 1-0 Burnley

Jermain Defoe's first goal for Sunderland helped to secure just a second home win of the Premier League season for a delighted Gus Poyet.

The January signing struck from close range 34 minutes into the game to leave visitors Burnley, who were already trailing to Connor Wickham's 20th-minute header, with a mountain to climb, and it proved to be one they were incapable of scaling as the Black Cats cruised to a 2-0 victory.

There were boos from the home fans at the Stadium of Light a week ago after...

Sunderland's Poyet 'not bothered' by Jermain Defoe goal drought

Sunderland coach Gus Poyet has backed new signing Jermain Defoe to be a hit at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland manager Gus Poyet spoke to the press following his side's loss to Liverpool, and noted that his depleted starting XI only solidified the result.
Gus Poyet says his Sunderland team will have no excuses for their performance as they prepare to face Manchester City on New Year's Day.

Gus Poyet has admitted he is not enjoying life as he tries to mould Sunderland into a winning team.

The Black Cats invested heavily to bring England striker Jermain Defoe back to the Premier League earlier this month in an attempt to give them the firepower they have been so badly lacking.

The arrival of Jermain Defoe was exciting for Sunderland fans, but unless the Black Cats figure out how to give the striker quality service, his presence is mere window dressing.

And so we arrive at the first six-pointer of the season, as a stumbling Sunderland side take on a Burnley team that has had a couple of blips of their own recently. Goal difference separates the two sides in the Premier League table, and it is feasible that the same will apply at teatime on Saturday.
