Martin O'Neill: We may have to change our own luck

Martin O'Neill: We may have to change our own luck

Although the Black Cats came back from 2-0 down for a point, Sunderland have collected just two points from the last 15.

Sunderland's first goal at the Stadium of Light came via the penalty spot and O'Neill believes they should have had a second - claiming Philippe Senderos had handled the ball - suggesting they are not getting their share of good luck.

O'Neill said: "The last four games we have played, we should not have been beaten in any one of them, and I defy anybody to disagree with me.

"We shouldn't have been beaten in any of those games. I suppose we have stopped the run of consecutive defeats but really a little bit of luck, perhaps, might help.

"But most managers would probably say the same thing. We have got to change things ourselves."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
