SUNDERLAND manager Gus Poyet felt his players gave a good account of themselves against Manchester United in today’s 1-1 draw.
“It was a good game to watch,” he said.
“We played a very good first half, going forward taking chances and creating half opportunities after conceding at what was the wrong time really because we were in control of the game. It was a big effort.
“We made a few decisions on how to play against a different system and the boys have done exceptionally well. We showed that we were organised and difficult to play against.”
