Kirchhoff: Sunderland players have to take responsibility

Sunderland midfielder Jan Kirchhoff insists that the players at the club need to take responsibility for their negative results this season.

The Black Cats have managed only one win from their opening six games and currently find themselves at the bottom of the league table.

He said: "It is 100 per cent fair to say that we have to take responsibility.

"We get well prepared before the game and we know what to do. We know how to defend — but we didn't do it properly."

Sunderland led 2-0 before Crystal Palace came from behind to win 3-2 at the Stadium of Light on the weekend.
