MacAnthony has said on Twitter that he expects the Black Cats to wrap up the league title by the start of April.

He said: “I expect them to walk this league. I said it in the summer and nothing has changed.

“A club the size of Sunderland with millions in parachute payments and players who have played loads of prem games, plus that support at home, should have the league wrapped up by the start of April. Simple facts. That’s just how football works especially at this level.”
