London - Sunderland are in relegation danger after a run of one win in 11
league games and Gus Poyet is working hard to bring in new faces in January.
Sunderland slumped to another loss on Saturday when they were unable to beat Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
Adam Johnson struck the bar after the break, but their hopes of
salvaging a draw suffered a weighty blow when midfielder Liam Bridcutt earned a
second yellow card early in the second half.
Sunderland have scored just 18 goals in the league this season and
manager Gus Poyet is under increasing pressure to bring in fresh attacking
options during the January transfer window.
"We're working at it, but can't promise anything because I

Sunderland are currently in 16th position on the English Premiership table but the Black Cats are just three points ahead of last placed Leicester City.
