The i newsletter cut through the noise

Jordan Pickford: Will be disappointed in himself with Llorente's opener, came but didn't get on the end of the superb free-kick delivery....5

Billy Jones: Somehow managed to miss the entire goal when an opportunity arose second half....5

Lamine Kone: Surely his final home appearance for SAFC. Will be among the mass exodus. Won't be missed either after this season. Pick of the defence but not saying much....6

John O'Shea (C): Lack of concentration at the back for Swansea opener, Llorente got in between O'Shea and Denayer. Steady aside from that but damage done early on...5

Sunderland concede the opening goal at the Stadium of Light

Javier Manquillo: Didn't do enough to prevent Naughton from doubling the Swansea lead. ...5

Seb Larsson: Back in the Sunderland side in place of the injured Honeyman, did little to inspire as Swansea dominated the midfield....5

Jason Denayer: Partly at fault for the opener, Llorente got in between him and O'Shea. Went off injured having contributed little....5

Didier Ndong: Had an off day, didn't do enough to stop Swansea in build-up to second. Sloppy play all round. One to forget. ....5

Fabio Borini: Offered little attacking threat out wide. Midfield was awful and forwards fared no better. Won't be missed after this season....5

Victor Anichebe: Went off injured midway in the first half. Will he make another appearance in a Sunderland shirt?...5

Jermain Defoe: Saw an effort blocked at the front post by Lukasz Fabianski. Frustrating game for what is sure to be his last at the Stadium of Light in a Sunderland shirt....6


Darron Gibson (for Denayer, 20): Kept giving the ball away, fans wanted to see Gooch come on. Poor....4

Wahbi Khazri (for Anichebe, 37): Switched off for the Swansea second. Saw a good free-kick saved. Booked but could have been worse. Comical corner late on. Two attempts on goal.5
