Larsson scored a very nice free kick goal in the 2-1 loss to Tottenham Saturday.

Larsson is a free kick master and proved his ability today with a fine effort. He also led the team with five crosses in the match as well. That makes for two goals and an assist in his last three matches and he is the only source for Sunderland offense right now. With the addition of Jermaine Defoe, Larsson may have more assist opportunities approaching if Defoe can find his old form. Larsson and the Black Cats have two weeks off before they host Burnley in a must-win game.
