Though West Brom had its moments early in attack, the Baggies seemed mostly content to let desperate Sunderland press them.

The Black Cats controlled the match, picking up plenty of deadball opportunities, but could not find a way past Tony Pulis‘ packed-in side.

Fabio Borini was in vibrant form, but couldn’t finish until his late tally was pulled back when he was clearly offside.
