Keane admits Sunderland need to buy in January

After their 7-1 defeat by Everton, Roy Keane admits he needs a raft of new signings at Sunderland in January.

Keane said: "We do not have five, six, seven or eight lads waiting in the wings. We have to get through to January with what we have got.

"It is down to everyone - me, the staff - but probably me more than anyone who has to take responsibility.

"I won't be criticising one player, if you concede seven you can't point the finger at just one player. Strikers miss chances, it is everyone's fault because it is a team game.

"They all have the character to bounce back, they will react in a positive way.

"It is good to talk sometimes, but maybe everyone should stew over the next couple of days and have a chat on Monday morning.

"I will judge the players by their actions rather than chatting, watching videos or analysing things."
