Sunderland winger Larsson proud of derby form

Sebastian Larsson was delighted with his performance in Sunderland's victory over Newcastle United.

The Swede is desperate for the improvement of Sunday to run into next weekend.

Larsson said: "It was a bit of a funny system, kind of playing inside a bit but on the wing, but I thought it worked out quite nicely. I do like being out towards the wing. I like having two central midfielders next to me.

"Whether the manager thought he needed more experience or not I don't know. I was delighted to be involved. He's been quite frank about the competition for places, telling us to make sure we stay in the team. That is what I tried to do.

"It was three points but it was a big derby win and we enjoyed it on Sunday night - but the important thing is to make sure we kick on from here."
