Fernando Torres is not included in this poll. Not even for a laugh.
Probably our best performance so far this season, obviously greatly helped by the performances of Juan Mata and Raul Meireles. I started shouting at the TV when Mata was subbed off - keep the man on! He was fantastic. But I guess we do have to save some of his energy for Leverkusen in mid-week.
The captain scored, which makes Sunderland the team he has scored on the most in the league. And Danny Sturridge, who many of us wanted to start once he was available again, rewarded our trust in him with a cheeky backheel that somehow managed to squirm its way over the line. Great stuff.
The most frustrating thing - we yet again failed to keep a clean sheet. You're ruining my fantasy team conceding these goals, guys! But we come away with three points and surpass Liverpool thanks to their loss at Stoke.
Jack will be back later with a proper recap, but for now, have your vote on the match of the match.
