Sunderland striker Chopra desperate to score against Toon

Sunderland striker Michael Chopra is desperate to score against former club Newcastle United today.

Chopra said: "Of course, I'd love to score. Like any striker I want to score in every game.

"I know what this game means to the fans, I'm a North-East lad and understand the rivalry. It's special and, hopefully, I'll be one of the lucky few to play for both teams.

"Sunderland fans already sing 'Chopra's one of us', which is nice. When you come to a new club you hope the fans will accept you. 'If I do score, I'll celebrate as I celebrate every goal."
