Bolo Zenden says Sunderland could qualify for Europe this season, if they can start beating teams outside the top four!
Zenden told the Telegraph: "It's a rather good reputation to have - scourge of the big four - but on the other hand, while it's good to get the points against the big guns it's not going to get you where you want to be in the end if you don't manage to beat the smaller sides as well.
"You need to make sure you get results against the less fashionable sides as well. If you look at it, we have had an off day against Birmingham and we have lost against Stoke and Burnley as well and that has let us down.
"You can't think when you play a team like Arsenal that they are not going to have chances, but we stuck at it, we stuck together and scored the goal at the right time."
