Stat Attack - Sunderland (a) Capital One Cup

It wouldn`t be the morning after the game if I didn`t try and bamboozle you with a couple of statistics, even if it is hard this morning considering the way things panned out!

But statistics are there to be discussed so here we go!

Firstly, although it was pointed out that we have a marvellous record up at the Stadium of Light, winning on our last nine visits, we neglected to point out that when it comes to major cup competitions we`ve a very poor record against the Black Cats. In five matches we`ve now managed to lose 4 and draw 1, a shocking stat.

Secondly, as far as losses at the Stadium of Light go, last night was our first loss there since Kevin Phillips scored the winner, in a 1-0 defeat, back in October 2000.

Lastly, for today, John Obi Mikel completed the most passes last night, a staggering 112 but perhaps we should ask ourselves how many of them were sideways, backwards or no more than five yards in distance!
