Sunderland striker Fabio Borini was always confident of being the matchwinner yesterday against Newcastle United.

Borini revealed he sent texts to friends on Saturday night, vowing to score the winner. Not just that, he dreamed the result would be 2-1!

He said: "I dream about it because I have a mental coach I work with. It is an exercise of visualisation of the action you can do in games. I actually texted my friend that I would score and it would be a 2-1 result."
