...of course it isn't. Here are the results from Saturday's player ratings.
Jordan Pickford (6.47) - MAN OF THE MATCH
I think the best description would be uncomfortable for Pickford's comeback, but he still pulled off a couple of decent saves and displayed far better distribution than Vito Mannone. He wins your man of the match.
Lamine Kone (5.71) - Second place
Second place doesn't mean much when you haven't mustered the average rating of 6. Romelu Lukaku tried his best to make sure Kone was marking him because he knew he could turn him with relative ease. Might have scored before he did because of this, but for a decent save from Pickford. I think you've been generous.
John O'Shea (5.67)
Pick of the bunch in defence for me, thought the Captain was probably the best player on the pitch for us.
Billy Jones (4.86)
Struggled immensely throughout and Mr 6/10 was far from a 6.
Bryan Oviedo (5.28)
Both goals came from his side, though he was unlucky not to have stopped the second. This was his worst performance in a Sunderland shirt, but I still think he was decent. What surprises me most about Oviedo is he crosses the ball well. Imagine what could happen if we had players in the box!
Didier Ndong (5.12)
When Sunderland fans begin to compare you with Nyron Nosworthy, but you are a midfielder, things aren't going your way. Our best midfielder which is a bit like choosing which type of onion you'd prefer to have rubbed in your eye.
Darron Gibson (4.55)
I understand the low rating, he looked a little off the pace at times. I feel like he'll prove a decent signing.
Seb Larsson (3.52)
Genuinely think Seb has forgotten how to play football. I am sure at one point he had it vaguely sussed, but watching him try to figure it out again is both excruciating and terribly boring.
Adnan Januzaj (3.96)
Tried to create, failed to create and then stropped. Pretty much everything you expect from Adnan Januzaj.
Fabio Borini (3.36)
Whole article coming on this fella soon.
Jermain Defoe (5.59)
Only had one chance of note and smashed the cross bar with only a little bit of room. The match could've been so much different had that gone in.
George Honeyman (4.37)
The youngster has looked tidy whenever he has started, but way out of his depth whenever he has been introduced as a substitute.
Wahbi Khazri (4.31)
Continues to prove Moyes correct.
