Fulop eyes number one tag

Sunderland goalkeeper Marton Fulop is hoping to impose himself as the club's first choice following Craig Gordon's latest injury problem.
Scotland keeper Gordon has been ruled out for up to three months with a broken arm which reopens the first-team door for Fulop.
The Hungary international made 26 Premier League appearances for the Black Cats last season when he deputised for Gordon following a long-term knee injury.
"I don't think the manager has decided yet who his number one is," Fulop told The Journal.
"The more games you get, the more chances you get to impress, and I hope we get a good result against Arsenal (at the weekend) and I can play my part.
"I definitely don't think the manager needs to bring in a new goalkeeper.
"Sunderland have three good goalkeepers - I include Trevor Carson as well.
"Craig is Scotland's number one and a very good goalkeeper and I am an international as well.
"All three of us want to prove to him that there is no need to sign another goalkeeper."
