Seb Larsson: Sunderland must use summer to get things right

I know more about running a club than Sunderland boo-boys: Moyes

The Stadium has the potential to be a real asset for the side as they look to bounce back but Moyes knows it is not a certainty.

The relegated Black Cats turned in an abject display in front of their own fans at the weekend and while the Scot is calling for his players to end a disastrous campaign with spirited performances at Arsenal and newly-crowned champions Chelsea, the omens are hardly promising.

And Moyes is anxious that two more players have said they are injured as Sunderland prepare for the fixture, although he did not name them.

BRADLEY LOWERY was carried out by Jermain Defoe for Sunderland's last home game of the season today.

"But in these next two games they've got a chance to show that they see themselves as Premier League players and are fit to be at that level".

Academy graduate midfielder George Honeyman, Lee Cattermole and Steven Pienaar all missed that aforementioned loss that helped Swansea to secure another season of top-flight football, as did long-term absentees Jan Kirchhoff, Paddy McNair and Duncan Watmore.

"If we can keep them and add to it, we know we're going to have a look to see what we can do with that".

He said: "I came here knowing exactly what the task was going to be. We'll definitely have a team to put out and we'll definitely go there and be committed, but we've got one or two we're not sure about".

From the brief flurries of momentum generated in the away win to Hull less than 10 days ago, the supporter's morale has hit rock bottom again in the wake of Saturday's disappointing performance at home to Swansea.

'That is a positive in itself and that is what I would probably say to them if I was given that opportunity'.

"I have enjoyed every season here, which might seem unusual, but I have enjoyed my time here".

He said: "I would still have hoped we had a much better output than we had".

He admits it's been an uphill battle ever since he arrived on Wearside.

Asked if it had been a awful season, Moyes said: "Of course it has because of the outcome, and we have said we have been really disappointed by it". "It's not been great".

"We made everybody well aware that our squad was short from the start".

"We were always playing catch up".

Asked about Shearer's comments, Moyes replied: "I'd have to say that in many ways he was right".

"There are some things along the journey where maybe I shouldn't have done that or I could have done this but ultimately, that is not why we are in the position we find ourselves in".
