Saido Berahino can be my new Jermain Defoe, says Peter Crouch

Saido Berahino can be my new Jermain Defoe, says Peter Crouch

Peter Crouch hopes it will be a case of him and Saido Berahino rather than one or the other as he bids to recapture the kind of partnership he enjoyed with Jermain Defoe. Mark Hughes has hinted he might look at using two up front as he tries to get the best out of new boy Berahino and born-again Crouch, who has scored three times in six games since being reinstalled in Stoke's first team. Crouch has previously proved a handy foil at Spurs and Portsmouth for a Berahino-type forward in Defoe....

Midweek Moyes: Rating Dave's decisions v Burnley!

Team selection, tactics, substitutions and post-match comments - we analyse them all! How did Moyesy rate after yesterday's loss away at Burnley in the FA Cup? Team Selection: We Asked For Change, We Got Change Sunderland's latest injury blow - another Jack Rodwell issue - meant that David Moyes' resources were further stretched for a game that the manager could do without. He also opted to rest Jermain Defoe - there didn't seem to be much merit in starting our star player in a game that in the grand scheme of things means very little to this team and manager. George Honeyman was given his...

Further woe for Rodwell and Co

EVEN after an atrocious first half that left Sunderland defeated and deflated, there was one man still being singled out for praise as he left the pitch. Jermain Defoe, on the 500th league appearance of his career, had done it again; he had found the net.

Sunderland 1-3 Stoke City: Brutal capitulation highlights need for investment

Sunderland 1-3 Stoke City: Brutal capitulation highlights need for investment

Sunderland's latest loss came today against Stoke City at the Stadium of Light, leaving David Moyes side in the bottom three and looking dreadfully short of quality in just about every area of the pitch. A Marko Arnautovic brace lead Stoke City past Sunderland as they inflicted a 3-1 defeat on the Wearsiders at the Stadium of Light. Peter Crouch pushed Stoke's lead to three with a first half header, before Jermain Defoe scored what proved to be a mere consolation as Sunderland fell to an embarrassing home defeat. Suffering only their second home loss in seven, Sunderland now sit second...
