Moyes believes his reputation is still intact despite poor season at Sunderland

Sunderland boss David Moyes has confirmed he will speak to the club's chairman this week to discuss plans for the summer and beyond. I couldn't say that in our other games in my professional opinion. I need to try and make sure I've got a team to put out.

"It might be that we have to take the kids with us to Arsenal but that is not a problem".

"I'd have to say that I think in many ways, he was right", Moyes told a pre-match news conference yesterday.

He continued: "I think the players have to stand up and be counted".

"They have a chance against two really good teams to show that they see themselves as Premier League players and are fit to be at that level". It was our last home game and I just felt on reflection our performance was really, really poor.

"We've got 10 or 11 that are under contract and are still going to be here, but we've also got a number of players who have options where they could leave for whatever reason".

"It was hard coming in to work on Sunday because we were training, it was hard because I was massively disappointed with the performance on Saturday". The one thing that Sunderland have got in their favour is that every time they've been down and relegated to the Championship they have managed to bounce back straight away.

Windows 10 S allows app installs only from the Windows Store and therefore millions of programs are not available for the system. The Surface Laptop has 3:2, 1080p 13.5 -inch touchscreen and will be available in the market in four different colors.

MOYES: "It's a big game for @Arsenal and that'll make it hard for us, but they also have an FA Cup final to look forward to".

Arsenal, meanwhile, are hot the heels of Liverpool and Manchester City in the race for UEFA Champions League football, with a late-season surge taking them to within touch distance of the top four.

"We have to improve and be determined at Arsenal". The players are the ones who cross the line, they have to show what they can do, many of them are thinking there is something better, well, that would have to be their choice. "Saturday wasn't great, like it hasn't been on many occasions this season".

"Many of them probably believe they have futures elsewhere but you have to perform on the pitch to do that. There's a core of ten or 11 players under contract", added Moyes in the aftermath of last night's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

"It has been a terrible season because of the outcome".

Asked if it had been a disgusting season, the former Everton boss said: "Of course it has because of the outcome, and we have said we have been really disappointed by it".

"We made everybody well aware that our squad was short from the start". "We've spoken to the players in that situation and they all know - they are ongoing".
