Sunderland boss Roy Keane has refused to question the effort of his players after the 1-0 defeat by Everton at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.
The Black Cats were hanging on for a point before Andrew Johnson's winner but Keane believes his players could not be faulted for their application.

"There's no question of the players' desire," he told BBC Radio Newcastle.

"The players kept going right to the end and on another day we could have got the right result."

The pressure continues to grow for Sunderland and Keane admits he hates losing games as much now as a manager as he did as a player.

"Like last weekend I think football is a cruel game. I'm done after every game," he said.

"I do believe the last few weeks have been unfair on the players."
