David Moyes: Playing Sunderland's 'kids' against Arsenal 'won't be a problem'

Despite being relegated, Moyes who expressed sadness over his team's 2-0 home loss to Swansea, said Sunderland will go to the Emirates and give their all against an Arsenal side that still has everything to play for.

He said: "I think the players should get motivated themselves personally, but after our performance the previous week, you wouldn't think it was anything to do with motivation so we went into the Swansea game quite high off a good result and I thought we made a couple of chances, but, ultimately, the first goal makes it hard".

In his defence, he replaced Sam Allardyce at a time when owner Ellis Short was looking to rein in spending amid mounting debts and hoping to offload a business which has become increasingly dependent upon his financial largesse. "There were some reasons for it, but I'm actually privy to the stats, I can see the physical stats and on much of that, I couldn't disagree".

David Moyes is adamant that his reputation as a manager has not been damaged by failing to save Sunderland from relegation to the Championship.

"I was massively disappointed with Saturday's performance, it was really, really poor".

Asked whether he thought it had been a terrible first season at Sunderland, the former Everton boss admitted that everyone at the club was very disappointed. "I think we will keep that and hopefully give you some news by the end of next week".

He added: "I'm more concerned that I've now got others who are saying they're injured as well but we will go there and be committed".

Moyes said: "I've laid out the plans about what I would like, what I think it needs".

"I think it was that we conceded a really poor first goal which made for a hard afternoon". "The players have to stand up and show they are capable of playing at this level and see themselves as Premier League players".

"It's not for me to say here [what the problems are], it's for everyone connected to the club to look at".

"Of course it has because of the outcome, and we have said we have been really disappointed by it".

"In football, sometimes you win games".

Moyes also hinted at the difficulties behind the scenes this season as he was asked whether the Swansea performance and impending exit of many players made team selection for the next two games hard. This is the only anomaly where it hasn't happened.

"Everyone knows my contract is up and I will decide my future during the summer".
