Sunderland reporter Chris Young gives his verdict after the Black Cats early collapse saw them succumb at Bournemouth.

Costel Pantilimon: Perhaps culpable for the opener and kicking was dreadful throughout with a series of shanked clearances. 5

Billy Jones: Consistently stretched and rode a fine line over earning a second yellow card. 4

Younes Kaboul: Never looked comfortable against Wilson. Culpable for the opening goal and then sent off for a daft second booking. 3

Sebastian Coates: Drafted in to replace the ill John O’Shea, but still looks a shadow of the player who finished last season. 5

Patrick van Aanholt: Couple of decent runs and probably the least shaky of the defence. 6

Yann M’Vila: Tried to Sunderland going, but his radar was off and got frustrated. 6

Jordi Gomez: Attempts to slow it down were redundant against Bournemouth’s high tempo. 5

Ola Toivonen: Kept the ball moving, despite team-mates giving him far too many high balls to challenge for. 6

Jeremain Lens: Wrongly saw a goal disallowed in a second half where he looked much more threatening. 6

FABIO BORINI: At least tried to take it to the Bournemouth defence in the first half by running at their back four and was a whisker away from emulating Ritchie’s wonder strike. 6

Jermain Defoe: Forced to feed on scraps, but when the chance came, he needed to take it. 5

Subs:

Jack Rodwell (for Gomez, 46) Needed to come on and at least moved the ball quicker. 6

Steven Fletcher (for Defoe 68) Never made any impact. 5

Adam Johnson (for Borini 72) Tried to conjure something, but game had gone. 6

Not used: Mannone, Cattermole, Larsson, Yedlin.
