“All of a sudden, he goes down, he’s a clever, veteran player. He knows what he’s doing. They got away with it.

“So for me it’s difficult to take. I didn’t want him to turn and get a free shot, so I stepped in.

“But knowing I didn’t touch him made it more frustrating for me and more difficult to swallow.”

Defoe offered a different slant on things, as he revealed he’s confident that Sunderland will manage to avoid the drop.

He said: “He said he didn’t touch me? Well if there was no contact, I would have turned and scored. “He’s going to say that. I don’t expect him to say, ‘Yeah, it was a foul’. The fact of the matter is that we got the penalty and I scored.”

Missing such a crucial kick never even entered his head as he revealed: “I was thinking, ‘This is my moment. I’m going to score’.
