Paulinho strikes again!

Paulinho is delighted that he's been able to contribute to the team's fine form on the road this term.

The Brazilian midfielder grabbed the all-important equaliser at Sunderland after the home team hasd scored against the run of play in Saturday's Premier League clash at the Stadium of Light.

Paulinho struck from close range to level it before half-time and just four minutes into the second  half, Mousa Dembele's cross was turned into his own net by John O'Shea for the winner.

It should have been more as chances came and went - including Jermain Defoe striking the woodwork twice!

Paulinho's goal was his fourth on the road - and we've won all four at Dinamo Tbilisi, Villa, Cardiff and now Sunderland.

"I scored against Cardiff in the Premier League, scored against Sunderland and I'm delighted but my team helps me every time," he said.

"I had the chance, I scored and it was important for the team. I’m happy we got the three points. That's the main thing.

"I'm enjoying the Premier League. You have to work hard, it's difficult but as I said, my team always helps me.

"Liverpool is now a big game at home. If we play like we did at Sunderland, we will have a big chance."

We take on the Reds at the Lane in a 4pm kick-off this Sunday.
