Ki Sung-Yueng marked his return from the Asian Cup in Australia by salvaging Swansea a point against his old club Sunderland.

The South Korean had been away for five weeks and he struck with a diving header halfway through the second period after having an earlier effort disallowed.

Jermain Defoe's regal finish had threatened to give Sunderland all three Premier League points.

Sunderland had built rare momentum after their first back-to-back wins of the season, following up their league victory over Burnley with a midweek FA Cup victory at Fulham.

The Black Cats settled well, even if Bafetimbi Gomis had the first shot of the contest from 25 yards which just flew wide of Costel Pantilimon's goal.

Kyle Naughton sent in a superb cross and Ki ensured he would not be denied a second time with a firm diving header, with the Sunderland defence failing to mark for once.
