Sunderland 0 Manchester City 3
Stadium of Light
Sunderland were well beating by a Man City who scored thanks to a Stephen Ireland opener before the break then a Sean Wright Phillips brace.
Sunderland controlled the first 44 minutes with early chances falling to Grant Leadbitter and Djibril Cisse.
Then in the 45th minute the Sunderland defence clear but only as far as Ireland who`s was nearly saved by Gordon but it just crept in after he took the sting out of it.
Sunderland came out after the break a totally different side and when down another two goals in quick sucsesion.
The first was a tap in for Wright Phillips as he dispatched Jo`s cross.
The second from Wright Phillips was a cheeky effort as he chipped Gordon after a through ball coming from Ball.
With Sunderland three goal down Keane made three consecutive substitutions bringing on Stokes, Murphy and Healy for Cisse, Diouf and Leadbitter.
The substitutions failed to make any impact with the result staying the same and it looks like it`s back to the drawing board for Keano.
