Pressure mounts on David Moyes after latest defeat to Swansea — Sunderland

  • Moyes defends reputation after Sunderland relegation

The win at the Stadium of Light, which was secured by first-half goals from Fernando Llorente and Kyle Naughton, extended Swansea's unbeaten run to four games and took their points haul to 10 from a total of 12.

Sunderland felt they should have had a penalty when Sebastian Larsson's free-kick appeared to be blocked by Sigurdsson's hand. Here are some of the main talking points from this afternoon's latest loss.

Fernando Llorente opened the scoring with a ninth minute header before Kyle Naughton's piledriver into the top corner doubled their lead.

"But we couldn't say more".

Does Short stick or twist?

The reality is there was nowhere near that, with thousands of home fans deciding beforehand to stay away, and who could blame them? Jermain Defoe and Vito Mannone were the last ones off the field, waving goodbye you would assume. Everybody can see that we need to make big improvements, big changes and I'll hopefully hear and understand a bit more in the next.well, probably in a week's time after we meet again.

Marseille are keen too and the more interest there is, the better it is for Swansea.

Full back Naughton then hammered an angled piledriver past Jordan Pickford on the stroke of halftime.

"That goal was a great moment".

More hints that Sean Spicer could be the next to go
Trump was asked what should be done about his press team being unable to keep up with him. Like many administrations, the relationship between Trump and the press has been tense.

It was a awful goal to concede and Llorente, despite his aerial strength, should never have had the opportunity to nod it goalwards given the height Sunderland have in their ranks. However, it was not to be for Sean Dyche's side, who have relied on their superb home form to keep them up this season, as King thumped home at the other end under two minutes later.

Having left the field to boos at the interval, the Sunderland players returned to resigned indifference.

"It came down to the first goal". We had a couple of half chances in the opening ten minutes. "Our keeper has been fantastic all season but I can't see why he would come for the ball at a free-kick that was just over the halfway line". We didn't play well. "The fans have shown their disappointment at me and I know exactly how they feel". I got straight down the tunnel.

Short can not have failed to notice how many home fans had already departed by the time the second half kicked off. I am disappointed for them. But this was the situation two weeks ago and it was always going to be hard what reaction to give the supporters after the game. They have to rebuild a club, and they will start from the very bottom.

"My future is the same as it was".

"I have experienced it with John Terry and Frank Lampard at Chelsea, but what I saw last Saturday was special", Swansea head coach Clement said. "We've got ourselves into a strong position but the season is not over and we don't think it is done", he said.

"We can't look further forward than that because we've got to try and get the right result".

Since taking charge at the Liberty Stadium in January, the 45-year-old has overseen a major uplift in the club's fortunes, guiding them out of relegation zone with a 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday. If we do that we're obviously going to put a lot of pressure on not only Hull, but Crystal Palace as well. "We'll all be watching it somewhere".
