David Moyes' Sunderland look doomed after dismal defeat to Stoke

Three first-half goals were enough for Stoke as they increased the pressure on Sunderland manager David Moyes.

After crashing out of the FA Cup, Mark Hughes was more than pleased with Stoke's performance over Sunderland.

Sunderland once again look doomed to relegation after a dismal performance allowed Stoke City to stroll to a 3-1 win on Saturday, their first league victory at the Stadium of Light in the ground's 20-year history.

Manager David Moyes inexplicably stuck for 90 minutes plus five minutes' stoppage time with a starting XI that struggled to match well-organised but by no means exceptional opponents.

Their untimely exit from the FA Cup following the embarrassing 2-0 loss to local rivals Wolves is still fresh for the fans who are expecting a suitable response given that it's one of the league's perennial bottom dwellers up next and not a more daunting prospect. In fact, this season the Potters have only managed to...

Moyes can steer Sunderland to mid-table starting with a result vs. Stoke

Can Sunderland build on a positive start to 2017 following their 2-2 draw with Liverpool in Premier League action?
Can Sunderland build on a positive start to 2017 following their 2-2 draw with Liverpool in Premier League action?

Sunderland's quest for season-saving points resumes on Saturday with a visit from Stoke City, a club with the relative stability that David Moyes' side should aim to emulate.

With rumours of a reunion with boyhood club West Ham continuing to simmer, Black Cats fans must be hoping Defoe's latest post isn't a subtle hint about wanting to "phone home".
