Jordi Gomez insists that Sunderland will be able to build on their performance against Tottenham Hotspur in the future.
The Black Cats lost 1-0 to Spurs yesterday, but their display was an encouraging one - with the defeat somewhat harsh on the side.
Now, Gomez is hoping that his teammates can build on the momentum they have gained from the fixture in the future and he is determined to help his team climb up the table.
"We deserved at least a point against Spurs and hopefully we can now take that into the next game," the midfielder told the Chronicle.
“We had a very good game, created chances and were a bit unlucky at the end with the goal we conceded.
“I think that game will give us a lot of confidence to keep doing the same things.
“I think we will only get better by the game and as the weeks go on.”
Gomez made his comeback in the match against Tottenham, after missing the entirety of the season with injury so far.
His performance in the centre of the pitch was a good one, with the midfielder bringing a number of qualities that have been missing from Sunderland's performances so far to the team.
The Black Cats have looked porous at the back, and limited going forward over the campaign to date, but they have reason to believe an improvement is in the pipeline and Gomez's words about the team growing in confidence should encourage supporters.
Sunderland's next game comes against Bournemouth at the weekend, where Dick Advocaat's men will be hoping to get their first three points of the season on board.
