O'Neill admits his squad is short of ball-winners and he could seek to fix that problem during the winter market.
He explained: "There is a bit of fluidity about the team [that also helps him]. Ashley Young can come in and when Stewart Downing is fully wound up, he's going to be an asset. Our problem is that because we have got a lot of footballers, we don't really have a ball-winner. Stiliyan [Petrov, the anchorman] would probably be the closest."
