Premier League: Wes Brown confident over Sunderland chances

Wes Brown is confident that Sunderland can enjoy another successful Premier League campaign despite a tough start to the season.

The Black Cats recorded their third draw in four games when they drew 2-2 with Tottenham at the Stadium of Light on Saturday and are still looking for their first league win.

However, Brown is confident that the elusive victory will not be long in coming. 

The former Manchester United defender said: "We have got a good bunch of lads here. We know what's expected.

"We have got to try to start winning a couple of games, but if we keep showing the desire that we showed in the last 15, 20 minutes and maybe do that at the beginning of the game - because it started very difficult for us - maybe we can get better results.

"We are looking for our first win in any of the games, and hopefully that will start next week. It's away from home, but if we can show the desire that we showed on Saturday and maybe finish a few more of our chances and stop them at the back, we have got a good chance.

"Tottenham played very well. They always put pressure on us and made it very difficult for us. They hit the post and the crossbar a couple of times.

"But we managed to carry on. You could say they got a little bit tired near the end and we just kept pushing on, and eventually we got something out of probably just the fight. We kept on going and managed to get the own goal."

Next weekend Sunderland travel to Burnley before home games with Swansea and Stoke.
