(BBC.COM) Sunderland’s 10-year stay in the Premier League ended as Bournemouth scored a late winner at the Stadium of Light.
The result coupled with Hull City’s draw at Southampton means David Moyes’ side are 13 points behind the Tigers with four games left.
The defeat, Sunderland’s 23rd of the season, means the Black Cats are relegated from the Premier League for a joint-record fourth time in Moyes’ first season in charge.
Bournemouth’s Joshua King scored the only goal with just two minutes left, tapping home from Ryan Fraser’s pass.
The Norwegian had also gone close in the 20th minute, but his shot rebounded off the post and crossbar and into the arms of Jordan Pickford.
Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc saved from Jermain Defoe in the first half, and Fabio Borini and George Honeyman in the second, but the Black Cats failed to sustain any real pressure.No tags for this post.
