Joleon Lescott: "It's not like we feel any different going into the game.
"Obviously, the atmosphere and the surroundings are a lot different, but every team has to play away and at the minute, we just can't put it all together and go on a run of results away from home.
"Yes, we win the games here and there.
"We won in the League Cup and then West Ham, but it's been stop-start away from home, so we need to knuckle down now and pick up some points.
"Normally when you lose a game, you can put your finger on why and the reasons for that, but I can't see that today.
"I honestly don't believe we should have lost the game and it's disappointing to come away with nothing.
"They defended well - you have got to give them some credit. As much as maybe we deserved to get something, their game-plan was spot-on.
"Similar to Cardiff, they worked hard. Every player worked extremely hard and did the job asked by the manager, obviously.
"We have got to give some credit to Sunderland, but we are disappointed with the result.
"It's happened now four years on the trot, so it's not a very easy place for us to come at the moment.
"But overall, I don't think we deserved to lose the game.
"Maybe they had a bit more appetite in the first half than we showed at certain times, but overall, I definitely thought we should have come out with something at the end of the game."
