Stoke v Sunderland

Joe Allen maintained his scoring streak as Stoke City recorded their first Premier League win of the season, beating Sunderland 2-0.

The Stoke midfielder scored for the third successive Premier League, getting both goals in the first half.

The Welshman headed home Marko Arnautovic’s cross from close range and doubled his tally shortly before the break with a low shot from the edge of the area.

Jermain Defoe's powerful shot over was Sunderland's best opportunity, while Wilfried Bony twice went close to opening his Stoke account.

Charlie Adam nearly added a third in the closing stages when his 20-yard shot hit a post, as Sunderland's winless start was extended to eight matches.
