Poyet challenges Sunderland to complete ‘miracle’

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has challenged his players to complete the ‘miracle’ and survive this season, according to Sky Sports.

In their past two games, the Black Cats have drawn 2-2 with Manchester City and beaten Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge to end Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten streak.


Now they face Cardiff on Sunday and Poyet has urged his team to continue to show the belief they have done so far.


It's been a good week, yes, it's true,” said Poyet.


"They are human beings, normal people who were very down because of the situation, and then in four days, everything changed.


"Now the idea is, with all respect, we have done something very special, but let's say half of the miracle. The other half, we still need to make."


Sunderland currently have 29 points and set themselves the target of four wins to aid their survival bid this season.


Despite it looking unlikely, the Uruguayan’s side have given themselves an unlikely chance and remain on course to grab the points needed for survival.


"I always said that we needed over 36 points, and I have not changed my mind on that. If after you need less, we are lucky,” added Poyet.


"But the idea is to go and win those four games that we said before. We have got a win and a draw so if we win another three, it's over.


"I know it's going to be difficult, three from four. People will say, 'Why are you going to win three from four now?'.


"But why are you going to win at Stamford Bridge against Mourinho? Why are you going to draw at Manchester City?".
