He may have scored the goal which condemned Bournemouth to defeat, but Sunderland captain Jermain Defoe still received a warm round of applause from the home supporters in the main stand when he was substituted as the visitors ran the clock down in stoppage time. His teenage heroics for the Cherries in 2000-01 are not forgotten so easily.

FULL-TIME

Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

They've done it! In the most remarkable of circumstances.

Looked shocking in the first half, they were then a man down, but they've won their first league game of the season.

Well done Sunderland.

Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

Pinball again in the Sunderland area, this time Bournemouth sub Lys Mousset's touch towards goal crawls past Jordan Pickford's right-hand upright.

It's happening again...

Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

A year ago on Guy Fawkes weekend, Bournemouth hosted a north-east side struggling against relegation and looking for their first away win of the Premier League season. The Cherries dominated possession, but were let down by a poor finishing and a man-of-the-match performance by the visiting goalkeeper.

Sound familiar? Newcastle were the victors that day, 1-0.

STOPPAGE TIME

Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

Brilliant save by Jordan Pickford!

Joshua King hits a fierce effort which comes off the bottom of Papy Djilobodji en route, but the 22-year-old is equal to the change in trajectory and leaps high to make the save.

A great one for the cameras.

Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

Bournemouth are piling on the pressure here, but Duncan Watmore, who should be renamed Duncan "Warhorse", comes back to the Sunderland area to ease the pressure on the defence.

Cherries sub Benik Afobe snatches at another shot from 18 yards. Really Benik!

That Jermain Defoe penalty ends a run of saves from Artur Boruc, who had kept out the previous three spot-kicks he'd faced in 2016 - from Leicester's Riyad Mahrez (2 January), West Brom's Craig Gardner (7 May) and Crystal Palace's Yohan Cabaye (27 August).

Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland

Bournemouth should have drawn level but sub Benik Afobe shoots wide from 10 yards.

Can the Black Cats hold on? They've got 13 minutes plus extra.

PENALTY TO SUNDERLAND

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Yup, you read right.

Adam Smith brings down Victor Anichebe in the area after the striker was played in by Duncan Watmore.

It looked a bit soft but ref Mike Dean didn't think so. And it's his thoughts that count.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Sunderland defensive midfielder Paddy McNair, still seemingly feeling the effects of an earlier shoulder injury, is replaced by Jason Denayer.

Pinball Blizzard

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

The ball is pinging around the Sunderland box.

Jack Wilshere plays a lovely one-two with Junior Stanislas but Lamine Kone just about gets a toe in to divert the ball away just as Wilshere was about to shoot from six yards.

Victor Anichebe goes in the book for a foul on Dan Gosling.

Just when Sunderland had Bournemouth on the rocks, suddenly the pendulum swings back towards the home side.

Jack Wilshere is yet to find the net in red and black - he hit the bar against Everton - but Jordan Pickford keeps him out, and now the visitors face more than half-an-hour with 10 men after Steven Pienaar's second yellow card. Initially, it looks like the visitors have switched to playing 4-5-0 at times with even Jermain Defoe pressed into service to hold back the red tide.

CHANCE O'CLOCK

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

As that fella sang, "it's getting hot in here" Obviously we hope they keep on all their clothes.

Just before the sending off Artur Boruc saved Didier Ndong's 20 yard shot.

Then Jordan Pickford saved low to deny Jack Wilshere.

And just now Junior Stanislas has sidefooted his 10 yard shot against the far post.

He should have made it 2-1.

RED CARD FOR SUNDERLAND

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Black Cats midfielder Steven Pienaar sees red for a foul on Junior Stanislas. It was a naughty challenge by the ex-Everton man whose studs met the shin of the Cherries man.

Ref Mike Dean was about a yard away. Really it could have been a straight red rather than a second yellow.

Sunderland have a corner. Yup, they've started this second half well.

But the Cherries clear. The home side keep giving away silly fouls though. Black Cats have possession again.

David Moyes may be serving a touchline ban, but has remained in constant contact with the Sunderland bench throughout the game. One lieutenant, sat next to Moyes, is wearing an earpiece to keep him in touch with a coach on the touchline. All of them cover their mouths when they talk, to the frustration of any lip-readers in the stadium.

Paddy McMare!

It looked an innocuous challenge by Dan Gosling but the former Manchester United player Paddy McNair is clutching his shoulder in agony.

Has it gone?

Well, he's still on the pitch but doing a 'windmill' with the affected arm.

As you were.

Jordon Ibe, the Cherries' record signing, has been substituted in each of his 10 Premier League appearances since joining from Liverpool. Make that 11 - it's another early shower for the 20-year-old as they look to the strength of Benik Afobe to assume the central striking role, with Joshua King moving wide.

KICK-OFF

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Back under way.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Bournemouth bring on forward Benik Afobe, who hasn't scored since March. He replaces Jordon Ibe.

HALF-TIME

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

Who'd have thought it?

From looking like it would be a pasting, it now looks - and whisper this - that Sunderland could come away with three points.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Bournemouth 1-1 Sunderland

So, so unlucky.

A brilliant Sunderland move ends with Paddy McNair crossing the ball into the area for Duncan Watmore, who pokes in from four yards.

Assistant flags. Watmore looks sad.

Replays suggest he was two yards offside. Which he was.

Bournemouth are playing like... Sunderland.

Keeper Artur Boruc comes out to block a cross and then punches away the subsequent corner.

Black Cats' midfielder Steven Pienaar goes into the book for a foul on Jack Wilshere. Wilshere is playing by the way.

David Moyes tries not to show any emotion, sitting upstairs in the Main Stand while he serves his touchline ban, as Victor Anichebe has the strength to hold off skipper Simon Francis and crash in that equaliser. Eddie Howe's brow remains furrowed, and it's the away fans who are making most noise at the moment as the home supporters take out their frustrations on referee Mike Dean.

Howe has, however, made a tactical switch with Jordon Ibe and Junior Stanislas swapping wings.

That's in reference to a tweet that Anichebe "sent" recently.

Sunderland are on the attack again. Jermain Defoe dinks one way and another but as he attempts to shoot from 18 yards Simon Francis gets in the way. Annoying that.

Victor Anichebe is not a natural finisher but that was brilliant. At the other end Jordan Pickford has kept Sunderland in the game.

Victor Anichebe

I told you it was coming...er..

What a strike!

Jermain Defoe plays in strike partner Victor Anichebe who turns from about eight yards out and smacks an absolute rocket high past Artur Boruc.

Wow! Football eh?

"Don't worry about a thing, every little thing's gonna be all right," sing the hardy bunch of Sunderland fans who have made the 350-mile journey south. Gallows humour from the Black Cats?

Sunderland have been bright going forward, but Bournemouth have repelled everything the visitors have thrown at them - and the Cherries' speed on the counter-attack must surely be a cause for Wearside worry.

Bournemouth 1-0 Sunderland

Cherries' Joshua King goes into the book for blocking keeper Jordan Pickford as he was about to kick from his hands.

Unnecessary.

Gee Em: Surely Moyes is just thinking now what he needs to take from his office come evening.

Tom Shelton: Look at Leicester's run 2 years ago/last season. They've made the impossible possible. Sunderland can do it if they believe .

Scott: If it's the players that let Sunderland down, how will replacing the manager help? Who would be able to turn it round?

GREAT SAVE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Sunderland

Bournemouth make a mess of things at the back. Jordon Ibe gives away possession on the right, and the ball eventually arrives at the feet of the busy Duncan Watmore whose angled drive is easily saved low by Artur Boruc.

At the other end, Jordan Pickford prevents Sunderland from going 2-0 down by saving a point-blank blaster from Joshua King, who was fed into the area by Junior Stanislas.

Sunderland have been rubbish. Bournemouth are well on top, I just can't see a way out for Sunderland, they are in massive trouble. It would not surprise me if David Moyes goes after the game today. If you stick with him, you are saying we are relegated, which they will be.

Sunderland now look to have made a tactical switch to 4-5-1, with Victor Anichebe moved to the left wing, perhaps to help cut out Adam Smith's surging runs from right-back like the one which led to the goal, and Paddy McNair looking more comfortable as the deepest of a central midfield three.

Sunderland boss David Moyes took his players on a tour of a car factory in midweek. It looks like some of them must still be on it, because it's like they're playing without a full team at the moment. Bournemouth absolutely bossing possession.

Bournemouth 1-0 Sunderland

Poor Duncan Watmore. He does put in a shift. This time the 22-year-old former Altrincham player powers down the right and fires in a ball along the six-yard area but none of his team-mates gambled. 

Confidence shot?

GOOD STRIKE!

Junior Stanislas' vicious angled shot kisses the side-netting after he is picked out by Josh King in the area.
