Sunderland were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.
Sunderland fans have praised the performance of Lee Cattermole against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last night.
Cattermole was selected to start by David Moyes and his performance against the Gunners impressed.
The combative central midfielder showed his usual battling qualities, and help Sunderland put up a spirited fight against Arsenal.
Sunderland ended up losing the contest 2-0, thanks to a brace from Alexis Sanchez.
But Cattermole’s display was widely praised, with many Sunderland fans admitting that they had missed him badly this season.
Cattermole is brilliant. Hope he stays next season, we need him #SAFC— 95 (@_wisemensay) May 16, 2017
We would have finished 2nd bottom if Cattermole had been fit all season . Much better side with him in it #safc— Andrew Breheny (@Breheny8) May 16, 2017
Lee cattermole you sexy footballing beast #SAFC— Matthew Stephenson (@SmattStephenson) May 16, 2017
Scoreline doesn't do Pickford any justice, man of the match by a mile. Teams played well. Cattermole showing how important he is #SAFC— Lewie Laing (@LewieLaing) May 16, 2017
In a team of questionable commitment, love seeing Cattermole play for #SAFC - he'll be the first one throwing himself around next season.— Scott Wilson (@Scottwilsonecho) May 16, 2017
We're a much better side with Cattermole in.— Sunderland Stats (@SunderlandStats) May 16, 2017
A midfield 3 of Ndong, a fit Cattermole and Ki / M'Vila would have been ideal.
Cattermole, Defoe & Pickford. The three who would should have built around this year, but nor we got a load of Everton rejects— Yer Da (@samhoopa) May 16, 2017
Cattermole’s campaign has been disrupted by injury, and his absence has been keen felt by David Moyes’ men.
Sunderland have endured a torturous campaign, which has left them rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table and destined for relegation.
