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
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
