Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill insists that he has enough attacking players to find the net, despite their slow start to the season.

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill is confident that his players can find the net following a drought in front of goal in the early phase of the Premier League season.

The Black Cats are only four points adrift of the relegation zone in the league table following their 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

"We have attacking players all over the pitch and you would think you would eke out a goal, but the most encouraging thing for me [against Villa] was the number of times we had one-on-ones, and that is what we strive for," said O'Neill.

Sunderland are due to go up against Everton at Goodison Park this weekend.
