It was yet another win for Sunderland as Phil Parkinson’s side beat Rochdale 3-0. It extends the team’s record to seven wins from their last 10 matches. They have now picked up 20 points out of a possible 27 in 2020.
Lynden Gooch was one of the players who fans were raving about after the match. Of the three goals, Gooch scored two. His impact on the game was undeniable.
Not only that, but both of his goals came within 31 minutes of kick-off. With an Eoghan O’Connell own-goal between them, the game was well and truly decided with only half an hour played.
Which player is better?
These fans shared their appreciation for Gooch online.
Might as well give him the Ballon d’Or now, save them doing it in December. #safc

Easily the worst side to come to the SOL this season, game was never in doubt. First half they got bossed second we didn’t pick it up.
Flanagan and Gooch absolutely class yet again, semenyo can offer something different, strikers are still a problem. #SAFC

Really got to hope we can keep Maguire and Gooch fit. They are the difference atm #safc

What do we think?
Hopefully, for Sunderland fans, the player can continue scoring for the Black Cats at such an impressive rate. If he can, it will be a massive boost to the side who are hunting for promotion to the Championship.
