Sunderland rode a wave of four first-half goals to an easy 4-0 victory against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Sunderland was boosted by the return of Lamine Kone and DIdier Ndong from the African Cup of Nations, as both players scored their first Premier League goal of the season. Kone kicked things off in the 10th minute after Wayne Hennessey bobbled a shot in front of goal. When it looked like Sunderland would enter half-time with a 1-0 lead, the Black Cats scored scored three goals from the 43rd minute on. That included two stoppage time goals from Jermain Defoe, his 13th and 14th of the season. Now, Sunderland sits level with Crystal Palace at the bottom of the table on 19 points. Feb 4 - 12:29 PM
