Five reasons Sunderland’s season is about to turn around

Sunderland finally earned their first win of the season courtesy of a 2-1 victory away at Bournemouth last weekend.

The Black Cats had to fight back from a goal down at the Vitality Stadium but managed to do so through a Victor Anichebe strike and Jermain Defoe penalty.

The result was made all the more impressive by the fact they played with ten men for the last half an hour when the score was still locked at 1-1.

The result could be one to kick-start their season and relieve some of the pressure on manager David Moyes.

The Scot took over after Sam Allardyce ascended to the England job but has struggled with the magnitude of the task at the Stadium of Light.

The aim again seems to be avoiding relegation, but with a lack of personnel brought in during the summer, it looks a big ask – particularly as they failed to win any of their first ten games.

With such a positive result though, this could all change. Here are five reasons Sunderland’s season is about to turn around.
