David Moyes’ men are up to 20 points, with just 10 games to go. Crystal Palace’s win over Watford – Sunderland’s next opponents on April 1 – lifted them eight points above the Black Cats, dropping Swansea into fourth-bottom spot, ahead of their late kick-off at Bournemouth.

Here’s how Sunderland fans reacted on Twitter to a disappointing draw against a Burnley side who are still to secure an away win all season.

@scatch21: Dropping N’Dong today was a phenomenally bizarre decision along with his treatment of Khazri all season is staggering! Clown Moyes

@gfosterjourno: I hope I’m wrong but the calorifically challenged lady may be warming up in the wings

@Im__ArnieKeena: Its #MissionImpossible now.. 7 points from safety #GoingDown

@josephmccabe: Moyes out. Most pathetic manager we’ve had since Howard Wilkinson. If Moyes gets sacked this week we have a slim chance

@phil_browell: March 18th & the season is over. Cheers Dave

@Charles_Anderso: Missed three clear cut chances cos they didn’t fall to Defoe. Reason number 1 Sunderland are going down.

@CallumBradfield: We’re definitely going down

@Markfergusonuk: The games just aren’t there to stay up. It would required the greatest of escapes and this team don’t have it in them

@TomCurry_14: And there ya go, goodbye premier league

@Hixxee: Strange to think one of the few I would consider keeping next season is Jack Rodwell

@out4alaugh: I didn’t get to the match today and I still was more of a threat than Fabio Borini to the Burnley keeper by the sound of it

@CoxaBrava9: Doomed

@MJacko1989: Clear lack of ideas and ability amongst that #safc side today! Blame lies with Moyes for me!

@BlackcatsLee25: Attitude of some of our players is an outrage. No fight or desire towards the end there whatsoever. Please end this season asap

@JHaySAFC: Apparently we’re down? Then again we’re down every season according to every one this time of year.

@aamroyal: Don’t see how anyone can have any confidence in Moyes bringing us up, he’s a national laughing stock, that will make many a broken man

@FUTWIZ_Pricey: Seven points from safety. SEVEN. This is the season.

@Leigh_Warin: Midfield and defence virtually non-existent.

@cowanscrack: Hopefull moyes will be gone. Need some type of optimistic approach to games.

@bywater_paul: Tell you what tho that linesman on the east stand today was easily the worst linesman ive seen all season clueless was embarrassing

@KerrieWilkinson: Well, we deserve this. “Competing” in PL with Jones, Gibson, Larsson, Jones etc. It doesn’t scream spirit & dynamism - just relegation

@KrisCoxon: I have a feeling Ellis Short is going to pull the trigger on Moyes!

@Adam_Johnson77: Next season should be exciting, a trip to Burton Albion’s shed on a Tuesday night

@WiseMenSayPod: Been critical of Januzaj this season but felt for him today. Players giving him the ball and expecting him to make everything happen

@kenfarn23: I honestly believe it will get a lot worse before it possibly gets any better!#safc

@TheCentreLeft: The coverage football fans around the country see tonight will not fully convey what a joke of a team we are. Absolutely lifting.

@sie_ftm: Noticeable mood swings amongst loyal supporters today, taking this result as season defining
