Many Sunderland fans were delighted with right-back Dion Sanderson during his side’s 3-0 victory against Burton Albion on Saturday.
Lee Johnson’s side ran out comfortable winners at the Pirelli Stadium after goals from Grant Leadbitter, Lynden Gooch and Charlie Wyke ensured that the three points returned to the Stadium of Light.
Sanderson, who is currently on loan from Premier League side Wolves, stood out to some who impressed out wide for Sunderland.
Per Sofascore, the 21-year-old accumulated a pass success rate of 85%, won three aerial duels, completed four long balls and only gave possession away seven times.
Do you think Sunderland should sign Dion Sanderson permanently?
Unsurprisingly, supporters gushed over the young Englishman and congratulated him on social media for his stellar performance.
