O'Neill evens to go next after latest loss

Norwich boosted their Premier League survival hopes with a 2-1 win over Sunderland and in the process increased the pressure on Black Cats boss Martin O'Neill.

The Canaries are out to 9-2 for the drop but Sunderland are just 7-2 to go down as the heat mounts on O'Neill.

Hills rate O’Neill evens to be the next manager to leave his job and 4-9 to have departed before the start of next season and he told Sunderland's official website: "We should have taken something from the game. It’s very frustrating to come away with nothing.”

Man Utd v Burton

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • United have conceded in just one of five league games
Expert verdict
Holders Manchester United have started the season in excellent form and the title-chasing Red Devils should have little trouble overcoming poor-travelling Burton in the third round of the League Cup at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho fielded a strong team throughout last term’s competition, which saw his side oust Northampton, rivals Manchester City, West Ham, Hull and Southampton on their way to silverware. Burton have won just two of their last 12 league away games.
