At the start of the second half it became apparent Seb Larsson hadn’t come out which led to the bizarre scenes of Gus Poyet frantically searching for his missing midfielder and heading back down the tunnel himself.
Just what was the Swede up to? Here’s how Twitter reacted to the surreal scenes:

Why is everyone going on about Seb Larsson? He only vanished for a few minutes. The whole Sunderland team vanished for 45 minutes!
