Jack Rodwell has started 32 Premier League games since his arrival at Sunderland in a £10million switch from Manchester City during the summer of 2014, and won none of them.

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale famously went 22 league starts after his move to Tottenham from Southampton without seeing his side collect three points, while Darren Moore endured a winless run of 29 matches following promotion to the top flight with Derby.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a took at Rodwell's agonising wait for a Black Cats win.
