Sunderland fans have been reacting to footage that has emerged from their game at the weekend.

Lee Johnson’s men moved to the top of the table on Saturday as they defeated recently-relegated Wycombe Wanderers 3-1 at the Stadium of Light. Two goals from Stewart and another from Elliot Embleton gave them all three points as they continued their impressive start to the season.

Merseyside derby, Liverpool and Everton

Who scored the opening in Liverpool's 4-3 win over Leeds United at Anfield in September?

The club showed footage of the third and final of the afternoon, which saw Dan Neil burst through the Wycombe midfield before laying the ball off to Stewart, who fired into the roof of the net and take his tally up to four for the season.

The club posted footage of the third online for fans to react to, and it certainly brought out a number of exciting responses from them, with praise going around for both men that were involved in the goal:

“3 goals of the highest quality. Wow, the new Sunderland”

“Things you love to see: Sunderland actually playing decent football!”
“Dan Neil. Generational.”
“Look how well we stroke the ball around. Can’t believe this is Sunderland I’m watching!”
“You know how long I’ve waited to see us have a midfielder run with the ball 30-40 yards like Neil did there… makes such a difference”
“That is an excellent finish and he made it look very easy but he had players around him and not much to aim at. In many respects a much better than Embleton’s ( also very good )”

After their start to the season, surely there must be a feeling of positivity on Wearside right now that after three years in League One that this might finally be the year that they get promotion back to the Championship.
