Adam Johnson scored a hat-trick for Sunderland in their 4-1 win at Fulham [GIFs]
Sunderland moved off the bottom of the Premier League on Saturday with an excellent 4-1 away win at sinking Fulham.
The Black Cats first win on a Saturday since April 2013 was secured by a first Premier League hat-trick from left-footed midfielder Adam Johnson.
Johnson, now 26 and long past his promising reputation as a potential star of his generation, scored in the 29th, 69th and the 85th minutes to register just a fourth win of the season for Gus Poyet’s team.
Johnson put the Black Cats ahead with a sweet curling in a 25-yard free-kick, before his low set-piece was steered in by Ki Sung-Yueng.
Johnson grabbed his second with right footed shot, before completing his hat-trick with a penalty after Senderos fouled Jozy Altidore.
GIFs of all of Adam Johnson’s goals for Sunderland at Fulham are below.
