The Black Cats did their chances of staying in the Premier League little good as they drew 0-0 with the Clarets at the Stadium of Light, leaving them firmly rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, seven points from safety. In a bid to secure just their second league victory of 2017, Moyes surprisingly switched up his midfield by bringing in Jack Rodwell in place of Ndong, with the outcome doing little to help his side's cause as they lacked creativity and drive. please log in to view this image David Moyes holds his head in his hands during Sunderland's 0-0 draw with Burnley RELATED ARTICLE In explaining his decision after the game, Moyes insisted the move to pair Rodwell with Darron Gibson was made in order to add a British streak to proceedings.

'I'm not kidding anyone on and we haven't done from the start – it'll need some really big results. 'We took a point. I wanted three points, I see this as two points dropped. I have to use it as something to build on.'
