Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio admits there are things his side need to learn following their home defeat to Fulham on Saturday.
The Black Cats have undergone a major change in personnel during the summer as Di Canio has rejuvenated his squad but they did not get off to the start they wanted.
The boss was pleased with the way his side played but disappointed not to get the result.
"There was only one team playing football, only one team trying to win the game, so I have to be happy with that," he said.
"I was happy with our possession, happy with the way we played from the back and overall, we played well, but we needed a bit more and we are working on that."
"I know what we want to do here - it is clear to me - and I was pleased with the way we played, if not the result," the Italian added.
"There are though, things we can learn."
