Fulop to take advantage of Gordon injury to claim Sunderland number one spot

Sunderland stopper Marton Fulop is determined to make the most of Craig Gordon's to become the Black Cats number one. The 26-year-old Hungary international, who impressed during an extended run in the team last season, has been a frustrated bystander for much of the current campaign following the £9million man's return to fitness and form.

Fulop said: "I don't think the manager has decided yet who his number one is.

"The more games you get, the more chances you get to impress, and I hope we get a good result against Arsenal now and I can play my part.

"I definitely don't think the manager needs to bring in a new goalkeeper.

"Sunderland have three good goalkeepers, I include Trevor Carson as well, Craig is Scotland's number one and a very good goalkeeper, and I am an international as well.

"All three of us want to prove to him that there is no need to sign another goalkeeper."
