Sunderland began the season with a 1-1 draw against Derby County, Lewis Grabban's penalty cancelling out Bradley Johnson's early effort.
Here's how the Black Cats rated...
Lucky that his first half fumble didn’t put his team 2-0 down and with a mountain to climb. Took no chances with his clearances, however, and made a fine late save. 6
Did his best to get forward and didn’t give Andreas Weimann a sniff at the other end. 6
Fortunate to be included in the team after last week but responded with a very solid display. 7
Distribution of the ball needs work but let little past him. 6
Beaten far too easily for the opener and gave Johnny Russell far too much room throughout the game. Did improve in final ten minutes 5
A constant threat, willing to take ball in difficult situations and make something happen. Delivers a wicked set-piece. 6
Didn’t allow Tom Huddlestone any time to dictate the tempo as Derby hoped. Quiet but effective. 7
Dominated the midfield, winning challenges and making excellent late runs regularly. Only a stunning save from Carson denied him a deserved goal. 8
A nerveless penalty and inches away from a brace when he struck the post. Very encouraging competitive debut. 7
Superb in the first half, justifying his selection with industry and invention. Faded in the second. 7
Battled well and held the ball up, but should have done better with a half-volley in the early stages of the second half. 6
