Gyan: Silly Goals Are Costing Us

You can't really argue with anything Gyan has said in the wake of our latest defeat against Spurs. He is very confident about his form in front of goal and happy with how he is playing but he asks for more concentration from the defence.

Sunderland have thrown away a grand total of 20 points from winning positions this season and this is something we must improve, and Gyan agree's with this.

Gyan said today: '"I am so happy to have scored that kind of goal.

"It led to nothing which is why I am disappointed, but it was a great goal.

"It is quite frustrating because we lost in the same way at Stoke when we dominated the game, but all of a sudden we were beaten. That is what happened against Spurs.

"We took control of the first half and went a goal up.

"We came back strongly in the second half, but conceded again. It is so frustrating.

"We lacked a bit of concentration when we were doing well, but the same thing happened at Stoke where we lost concentration at set-pieces.

"We are a bit down. We are taking command of games then conceding goals."

The 13m Ghanaian striker is playing well and happy to have the likes of Muntari and Sessegnon providing the balls into the box.

He added: 'I don`t doubt my quality whether I am playing with one striker or two. I will just keep on going, but for the team it is sad because we have lost three in a row.

"I think our game is very impressive. The whole team is doing well, but it is quite frustrating that we are giving away silly goals.

"Sessegnon is a fantastic player who I knew from France.

"He was one of the best players in France and will do well for Sunderland.

"He is a ball juggler and if he is in top shape, he will help the team."
