Sunderland midfielder Alfred N'Diaye thinks his side require one more victory to ensure safety from the drop this season. 

The Black Cats have looked a different side since the arrival of charismatic boss Paolo Di Canio, having won their last two games with the Italian at the helm, and N'Diaye is one of the players that looks to have benefitted from his arrival. 

"I'm feeling good. I think we are playing well at the moment: everyone is playing well," N'Diaye told the Daily Mail. "If everybody plays well it is better for me and it is easier for me to produce a good performance."

Wearside has looked a rosier place since Martin O'Neill departed the club and a win in their next game against strugglers Aston Villa would leave Sunderland all but safe. 

The former Nancy midfielder has also stressed the importance of their next game and thinks it will be enough to survive should they come out with victory.

"I think if we win on Monday we will be safe and our problems are over," he added. "If we win we get towards 40 points and that should be enough."

There has been little talk of next season from those involved in Sunderland of late with the immediate worry of Premier League safety very much at the forefront, a view which N'Diaye himself shares. 

"I don't think too much about next season yet. At the moment I am just thinking about staying in the Premier League - that is my total focus. That is the most important thing for the club, we must finish well this season. After that, I will think about next season.’’
