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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
