The Game of the Season
Very few highlights in this relegation season, the highlight being David Moyes leading Sunderland AFC to a 4-0 away victory at Sam Allerdyce's Crystal Palace. Probably Moyes' only highlight. Jermain Defoe netting twice after Lamine Kone (9th minute) & Didier Ndong (43rd minute) had put SAFC 2 ahead.
