Sunderland in trouble as Watford claim vital three points

"We hope that Victor could be back and maybe Catts", Moyes is quoted to say by Sunderland Echo.

He added: "We did well as we had to defend a few [set-pieces], especially in the first half".

Sunderland's only win in 11 league matches was by a 4-0 scoreline at Crystal Palace on 4 February (D3, L7). "I think they've done fine and they have some good players in their team, so it'll be a tough game". "If we play like that we will be safe".

"We will evaluate Deeney".

"We wanted a win from one of these two games and we didn't get it, we came close to getting something, but we'll have to try and get it on Tuesday against Leicester now".

The 34-year-old striker marked his return to the worldwide stage after nearly three-and-a-half years in the wilderness with a goal in England's 2-0 qualifier victory over Lithuania on Sunday, and immediately set his sights on forcing his way into Gareth Southgate's plans for the 2018 finals in Russian Federation.

Defoe revealed - after his heroics for his country - that the regime which has seen him maintain his form well into his 30s has even included a vegan diet.

"I don't know about miracles, but we know they happen and it's happened a couple of times recently to Sunderland", said Black Cats boss Moyes.

When asked if he was confident Sunderland could stay up, he said: "Yes". I don't want to be at this position where we're losing.

Despite the defeat, Moyes feels his team showed enough commitment to merit at least a point from the tightly-contested match.
