Southampton rescue a late point then with Fonte's header and you can't say it isn't deserved. The hosts were knocking at the door since Giaccherini's opener in the third minute, and a draw is the fair result really. Both sides should be relatively happy with the result.
A Southampton free-kick is defended poorly but it's a great delivery and Jose Fonte is first to it for the equaliser.
Osvaldo's not having the happiest of debuts, a foul on Diakite heralds a booking.
Final Sunderland sub as Wickham replaces goalscorer Giaccherini.
Off comes Adam Lallana, replaced by Gaston Ramirez.
On comes David Vaughan for Jack Colback.
The second-half is underway then and Sunderland have the first chance, substitute Ji with a low effort which is well saved.
Super Kev H is confident in Paolo Di Canio's men for the second half: 'Sunderland to finish 2 0 up, ha'way the lads!'
Dani Osvaldo and Nathaniel Clyne are shaping up to come on for Southampton, no news of changes for Sunderland just yet.
There goes the whistle and it's Sunderland who go into the break 1 goal up. Southampton have perhaps had the better of the half in terms of possession and chances however and Lambert has been impressive. The visitors took advantage of some lax defending however and have set up perfectly for this away day.
Gardner crashes straight into Luke Shaw and receives a yellow card.
James Ward-Prowse has a handfueld of Jack Colback's shirt and is snapping at the ankles, and rightfully receives the game's first booking.
And from the corner, Larsson finds an unmarked Giaccherini in the area, and it's an easy header for the Italian.
Southampton are odds-on favourites to win today with Sunderland 9/2 outsiders. Rickie Lambert heads the goalscorer betting and is available at a Price Boosted 5/1 to scorer first while substitute Pablo Osvaldo is 5/1 to score last on his debut.
