Patrick Van Aanholt replaced the seriously injured Jan Kirchoff early in the second half and went on to score the equalizer as Sunderland and West Brom drew 1-1.
It was a surprise omission from the starting line-up for Van Aanholt who has been a regular starter for the Black Cats since Sam Allardyce arrived to manage the club last season. The former Chelsea trainee has been a strong attacker in his time with the club but apparently David Moyes was aiming for more defensive solidity. Down a goal, he brought PVA in for Kirchoff when the latter was hurt and it worked out brilliantly. Van Aanholt didn't exactly get the contact he wanted on Duncan Watmore's cross but it worked and the Black Cats picked up only their second point of the season. Oct 1 - 12:44 PM
