O'Shea made a point to say that Sunderland's defeat in the Capital One Cup Final to Manchester City would not affect the team's efforts in the coming matches, reports the Daily Mail.

After losing an important match the team can sometimes feel emotionally defeated, triggering a string of poor results that Sunderland cannot afford right now. O'Shea said the players would pick themselves up and push forward to make sure they move up the league standings.

O'Shea will have a late fitness test ahead of Thursday's match against Everton due to a shoulder injury suffered in last weekend's scoreless draw with Norwich, the Irish Independent reports.

Sunderland have recorded scoreless draws in back-to-back matches, which means O'Shea has rewarded fantasy owners with two straight clean sheets. He has four total shutouts on the season, three of which were scoreless draws.

O'Shea was issued a straight red card in the 78th minute of Saturday's 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

The match was tied 1-1 until O'Shea's foul in the box, which resulted in Dwight Gayle's successful PK to put Palace ahead of good. O'Shea will now miss Sunderland's next three matches, likely returning October 5 against Manchester United.
