Sunderland midfielder, Yann M’Vila says that his club must win ‘a cup final’ at Carrow Road on Saturday and they must beat Norwich ‘at any cost.’
Having been beaten 0-2 by Leicester City and Jamie Vardy in particular on Sunday, the Black Cats are still four points behind Norwich albeit with a game in hand.
They face Norwich at the weekend with both sides knowing that a win is crucial to their chances of survival in the Premier League.
The Leicester defeat has also brought the goal difference of the two clubs together with Sunderland being just one goal better off than Norwich now.
M’Vila told Sky Sports: ‘We have to win against Norwich, there’s no question of a draw. We have to take the points and absolutely have to win at any cost.
‘It’s like a derby, a cup final and we have to approach it like that. There will be pressure on both teams but more on us because there’s four points between us.
‘We absolutely need to win because, if we draw, Norwich will still have that four-point gap.’
