    Sunderland win this week's performance of the week for ending Manchester City’s 100% home record.

    This week's goal of the week was Sunderland’s goal by Kieran Richardson in the defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

    - With Martin O’Neill looking on from the stands, the new manager saw the best and worst of Sunderland at Molineux.

    - After clearing a Wolves corner, left-back Kieran Richardson supported Stephane Sessegnon from deep at great speed and took the pass in his stride before beating keeper Wayne Hennessey at his near post with a cracking left-foot shot.
