Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy has criticised David Moyes' decision not to sign a striker in the summer.
The Sunderland manager has brought Victor Anichebe to try and ease the goalscoring burden on lone frontman Jermain Defoe, but that is not nearly enough, according to Murphy.
The former Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers and Fulham midfielder believes that Moyes should shoulder the blame for choosing not to add another forward in the summer window.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Murphy said: "Defoe is the only goal threat.
"There is some responsibility on the manager even though he's walked in to a poor squad. Go and get yourself a striker at least."
Moyes has endured a difficult start to life at the Stadium of Light.
The Black Cats are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League and without a win, having picked up just two points from their nine games to date.
And Murphy even questioned the rest of Moyes' summer additions, including club record buy Didier Ndong.
"He's signed a centre-half (Papy Djilobodji), a record signing midfielder (Ndong) - he's game, hes having a go, but not a world beater."
