West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Brom have beaten Sunderland 3-0 at The Hawthorns this afternoon.

Sunderland's difficult start to the season has gone from bad to worse, after they were torn apart in an abject display against West Bromwich Albion.

Predictably it was a player Paolo Di Canio allowed to leave Sunderland earlier in the summer who got things off the ground, when Stephane Sessegnon opened the scoring for The Baggies.

Things did not improve for a poor Sunderland after the break, when Liam Ridgewell bagged the second goal of the game. 

The away stand was already booing by the time the impressive Morgan Almafitano secured all three points with a third goal.

And matters were not helped when Steven Fletcher was carried off with a suspected dislocated shoulder late in the game, leaving the away side to play with ten men after three substitutions had already made by Di Canio, who ended his day at the office on the pitch apologising to Sunderland fans.
