Fans of Sunderland have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Luke O’Nien posts comments on footage he has uploaded.
In the footage, O’Nien is lifted up from the floor by an opposition player, before falling back down to the ground in a comedic fashion. In addition, the 25-year-old comments: “When someone wants to leave the house unnecessarily… do this!”
Will Sunderland achieve promotion this season?

What do we think?
O’Nien, who is valued at £135k (as per Transfermarkt), has enjoyed a fine season for Sunderland so far, scoring four goals and providing three assists in 35 League One appearances, while averaging a WhoScored match rating of 7.08 in the league.
His impressive performances have helped Sunderland reach seventh place in the League One table, level on points with sixth-placed Peterborough United.
The defender has also clearly pleased Sunderland fans with his appearances in the new Sunderland ‘Til I Die Netflix documentary, with some claiming that the 25-year-old is “the star” of the programme.
