Cristhian Stuani scored twice on his Premier League debut as Middlesbrough beat Sunderland in the first Wear-Tees league derby in seven and a half years.
Alvaro Negredo assisted both goals, with Stuani’s opener a brilliant 25-yard effort into the top corner.The Spaniard then unselfishly squared to Stuani for their second.The Black Cats improved in the second half and Patrick van Aanholt gave them hope when he turned home after Brad Guzan parried Duncan Watmore’s shot.
David Moyes’ side had been booed off after a first half which saw them fail to test Boro debutant Guzan, replacing the injured Victor Valdes.But after a second-half revival, they almost had a draw when Guzan fumbled another shot, but Donald Love turned the rebound wide.
Michail Antonio scored five minutes from time to give West Ham victory over Bournemouth in the first Premier League match at the London Stadium.
Antonio rose highest at the back post to head in Gokhan Tore’s cross and decide a game of few chances.The goal came eight minutes after Bournemouth’s Harry Arter was sent off for a second bookable offence.
Cherries goalkeeper Artur Boruc saved well from Enner Valencia in the first half, while Adrian denied Joshua King.
