Poyet blames errors for Sunderland loss

Gustavo Poyet blamed defensive errors as his Sunderland team squandered a one goal lead at home to Tottenham on Saturday to lose 2-1, Sky Sports has reported.

Sunderland took the lead late in the first half when Adam Johnson took advantage of Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ failure to deal with Ondrej Celustka’s cross.


However, the visitors turned it round with goals either side of half time as Paulinho stabbed the ball home following a free-kick, and John O’Shea put through his own net, the fifth own goal conceded by Poyet’s side already this season.


The result meant that the Black Cats remained bottom of the Premier League table, and five points adrift of safety, ahead of next week’s game at fellow strugglers West Ham United.


And Poyet found himself hugely frustrated after this latest defeat. He said: "Very disappointed, for many reasons: one, because we don't have the heart to compete with Tottenham for long periods. To go ahead and score with a great goal, the type of goal we try to convince the players that they can do, but then something happened.


"Something can happen in the last minute, a simple foul, but the ball is played in and it drops and they are better than us, they are quicker than us. And once more an own goal, I don't know what to say about that. I have never seen it before. And then it was too open, you cannot play that way against Tottenham. You shouldn't be in that situation again."
