Sunderland manager Roy Keane was pleased with the way his team played against Arsenal. Sunderland managed to draw against the gunners and maybe should have won after taking the lead 5 minutes from time only to surrender it in injury time.
Roy Keane told the clubs official site "I said 'well done' to all the players, I thought we were outstanding. There were lots of positives, I can't think of many negatives."
"We had good discipline, good shape, we did some good stuff and we defended well. We have drawn against one of the top four teams in the league and we matched them today."
"None of our players should feel disappointed, they should be delighted, they played very well, I'm not disappointed that we conceded in stoppage time."
"The game is not over until the final whistle, anything can happen late on. We knew that after Grant's goal they would come at us and we knew there was a long way to go."
"We couldn't do it at the end, the corner goes in, they had plenty of bodies in and they are a big, strong team. It ends up with Fabregas scoring, one of the smallest players on the pitch, that's the way it goes sometimes."
"We'll learn from it, we are making progress, we played with a good shape and mentality today. You are tempted to have a go at Arsenal but you have to keep your shape, Yorkie came in and gave us good shape."
"The likes of Djibril are getting stronger; we are looking more like a team."
"We played Arsenal last year and we attacked, we played Chelsea, we played 4-4-2 against United and we were beaten 4-0, it could have been seven. We have to get the balance right."
"I don't think we were too defensive, we got in some good areas and there were some good opportunities."
Vital Sunderland Says
Keane is right Cisse is starting to look sharper and sharper and you have to play the top teams with the team set out to frustrate and limit their chances
