JERMAIN Defoe grabbed his first Sunderland goal to confirm a much-needed 2-0 Premier League success against Burnley today.

And the striker hailed the team’s vigour in a “massive win”, telling Match of the Day: “It was important that we got the win today. It was a massive win.

“We created a lot of chances today, the fans were fantastic. The energy from start to finish was fantastic today.

“We managed to get the early goal which helped us, settled us down.

“It’s always difficult to be honest when you’ve had a long break. But I’ve had a mini-pre-season and I’m getting sharper and sharper.

“The Premier League is the best in the world and that’s where you want to be. I feel like I have a lot of goals left in me.”
