[[content.stanza]]Sunderland lost their first game at the Stadium of Light to Middlesbrough. A spirited second half display was not enough to pave over the lacklustre first meaning Patrick van Aanholt's strike was merely a consolation. Time for you to rate the players!
Apologies that this was not available for the Man City game, technical issues and all that! Now we are back in business and you can rate each player. The ratings will be used to determine our player of the month and year.
