The Black Cats stopped a run of two defeats to start the season by equalising in the second half after Bafetimbi Gomis netted his third goal of the campaign for the Swans.
But Jermain Defoe responded just after the hour-mark when finishing Jeremain Lens' cross inside the far post to give the Wearside club a share of the points.
The draw has Dick Advocaat's men sitting second bottom as Garry Monk's Swansea find themselves sixth after an unbeaten beginning.
- Can this be the kickstart Sunderland need after a poor start to the season?
- Is Gomis the in-form striker in the Premier League?
The goal scored by @IAmJermainDefoe today was his 130th career strike in the Barclays Premier League. pic.twitter.com/w3kxLZmXTA

Sunderlandmanager Advocaat on Defoe:
"That's the reason he is a striker. He's there to score goals. It was a good goal, a good action. Jermain is a very positive guy."
Swansea's Monk on his side's inability to win a match they should have:
“We were creating chance after chance, and that was what cost us the extra two points. We really should have put the game to bed in that period and got that second goal, and possibly another."
*Thanks to Opta
8 - Bafétimbi Gomis has scored eight goals in his last nine Premier League games for Swansea City. Prowl.
