Adam Johnson's lively substitute appearance and sublime stoppage time equaliser were more than enough to secure the VMC Forum vote for MOTM at the Stadium of Light...
Otherwise, this was a wretched City performance that only sprang into life in a blockbuster of a second half.
That said, The Black Cats are emerging from a long, dark winter of discontent firing on all cylinders.
In the scheme of things, they could well have a say in which club secures a 4th placed Premier League finish this season.
Wearside is going to be a difficult place to go for the remainder of this season and most notably, Spurs have to go their in April.
If The Mackems can take this form on the road, then Villa and Liverpool can both expect a game later this month.
Back to City, and after Johnno, Craig Bellamy's running, Joleon Lescott's continued improvement and Patrick Vieira's promising performance were all recognised by the VMC worldwide community:
11. Adam Johnson [60%]
39. Craig Bellamy [20%]
19. Joleon Lescott [13.33%]
24. Patrick Vieira [6.67%]

2. Micah Richards [0%]
33. Vincent Kompany [0%]

5. Pablo Zabaleta [0%]
34. Nigel De Jong [0%]
18. Gareth Barry [0%]
32. Carlos Tevez [0%]
