That's it from me. Make sure you head over to the main football live for all the reaction to this and the day's other matches. Goodbye.
- Sunderland XI: Mannone; Jones, Brown, O'Shea, Van Aanholt; M'Vila, Cattermole; Johnson, Lens, Borini; Defoe.
- Bournemouth XI: Boruc; Smith, Francis, Cook, Daniels; Surman; Pugh, Gosling, Arter, Stanislas; Afobe.
Neither side can find a winner and it finishes honours even. Probably a fair result on the balance of play.
Junior Stanislas is being helped off - he's not moving his left leg at all. Glenn Murray is on. Meanwhile, three minutes of stoppage time.
Lucky, lucky boy. Billy Jones has gone right through the back of Junior Stanislas, studs raised, and he's hurt the Bournemouth winger. He's very fortunate not to see red for that.
Jack Rodwell replaces Jeremain Lens for Sunderland.
With Newcastle United currently losing 2-0, Big Sam will know how big three points would be for his side today. You get the impression there could be a few twists and turns yet in this one.
Oh what a chance for Bournemouth to win it! Matt Ritchie slides a glorious through ball to Lewis Grabban, the striker is all alone, but somehow contrives to poke wide from five yards. What a miss. Head in hands from Grabban, and rightly so.
Matt Ritchie unleashes a shot which takes a wicked deflection off Dan gosling and it so nearly trickles in. Vito Mannone was rooted to the spot.
Adam Smith floats a great ball into the Sunderland area, but Dan Gosling can't bring it under control.
It's end-to-end stuff now. Yann M'Vila forces a good save from Artur Boruc, then Bournemouth break menacingly before Sunderland snuff out the counter.
Sunderland are toying with Bournemouth here. They play the ball around beautifully on the edge of the area to release Jeremain Lens down the left, but his inviting ball across the six-yard box has no-one to tap it in.
This match has completely shifted around from the first half. Now it's Sunderland who are making all the running and Bournemouth who are having to man the trenches. Sam Allardyce's side have a sniff of what would be a very important victory here.
Duncan Watmore replaces Fabio Borini for Sunderland. He's scored a couple of big goals already this season - can he be the hero?
Harry Arter unleashes a wild shot from distance - no danger there.
The anticipated change is made. Goalscorer Benik Afobe trots off and Lewis Grabban, in his second spell at Bournemouth, is on.
Harry Arter puts in a loopy cross and Matt Ritchie meets it, but he can't get any power on it and it's easily saved.
Benik Afobe looks to be labouring for Bournemouth and his fellow January signing Lewis Grabban is getting stripped...
Oh what a chance that is! Adam Johnson swings in an absolutely pinpoint cross from the right and Billy Jones has a free header from five yards out, but he puts it straight at Artur Boruc. Got to score those.
Marc Pugh off for Bournemouth, Matt Ritchie on in his place.
Great effort from Jermain Defoe! Out of nothing, he unleashes a dipping effort that catches Artur Boruc off his line and sails just wide of the post.
Now it's Sunderland who are applying a bit of pressure. Adam Johnson tries an ambitious effort from range, but it's comfortable for Artur Boruc.
Having said that, it's Sunderland who mount the first significant attack. Patrick van Aanholt plays a good pass to Adam Johnson and the midfielder surges forward, but his pass to Jeremain Lens is overhit and runs out of play.
A quiet start to the second half, but it's Bournemouth who look more confident and composed on the ball.
Sam Allardyce enjoyed his side's equaliser. It's all to play for in the second half.
We're back up and running. Can either of these sides find a winner?
Thomas Hewitt: Patrick van Aanholt now has 4 goals in 4 games. Jamie Vardy your record is under threat from a left back!!!
Just to be clear, Van Aanholt has found the net in four straight Premier League games - however two of the shots were subsequently credited as own goals.
And that's the interval. What a bonus for Sunderland. Bournemouth will feel sick.
Former England winger on Final Score
"I think he is anticipating, he has a gamble. It is a great ball in and he doesn’t have to break his stride to put the ball in."
Well, well, well, after soaking up all that punishment, Sunderland will go in level at the break.
Fabio Borini slips a cute through ball in between centre-back and full-back and Patrick van Aanholt, bursting forward on the overlap, collects the ball and rifles past Artur Boruc.
Fabio Borini lets fly from 25 yards but his low strike is well saved by Boruc. On second look, it took a deflection which took some of the sting out of it.
Marc Pugh wriggles and twists on the edge of the box to buy space for a shot but his attempted curler floats harmlessly over.
Bournemouth have scored the most goals in the first 15 minutes of Premier League games this season (eight) & Sunderland have let in the most (nine).
Finally a chance for the hosts. John O'Shea gets forward and plants a good downward header which forces Artur Boruc into his first action.
Sunderland string a few nice passes together, but then Adam Johnson wastes the chance by trying an overambitious backheel.
That's better from Sunderland. Nice interchange of passes plays Borini in down the right and Charlie Daniels is forced to concede the corner. The set piece is overhit though.
Honestly, I can't overstate how one-sided this is. It's like watching attack v defence at the moment, Bournemouth - centre-backs on the halfway line - just going through their pass-and-move repertoire. Steve Cook unleashes a shot from distance which clears the crossbar.
One-way traffic. Junior Stanislas wins a knockdown and the ball rolls to Benik Afobe. Stanislas, unattended, is screaming for the reverse pass, but Afobe chooses to unload himself and draws a good save for Mannone.
Junior Stanislas lets fly with a drive from a tight angle. Parried by Mannone. It's all Bournemouth, there's a second goal there for them.
Whistles from the Wearside crowd. Sunderland just can't hang onto the ball in the centre of the park at the moment. Bournemouth camped in the Sunderland half.
