Gus Poyet: 'Luis Suarez will be happy after Sunderland held Manchester City'

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet believes that Luis Suarez will be "happy" following the Black Cats' 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet believes that his side's draw against Manchester City will please Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

The Black Cats, who reside at the bottom of the Premier League table, came close to grabbing all three points against City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

However, a blunder by goalkeeper Vito Mannone resulted in Sunderland sharing a point with City in a 2-2 draw.

Now, Liverpool are six points ahead of City, who still have a game in hand, and have a two-point lead over second-placed Chelsea.

"We are playing for ourselves - we are not playing for Liverpool," Poyet told reporters. "Maybe we helped them, and I am sure that Luis Suarez is going to be happy because there is one team less."

Sunderland are six points adrift of safety with five games left to play.
