Swansea City 2-2 Sunderland
Steve Fletcher's brace was not enough as 10-man Swansea secured a deserved point against Sunderland.
The Black Cats new boy scored on 40 minutes and deep into first-half injury time, Wayne Routledge notching in between times for the Swans.
Michu levelled terms for Swansea again on the hour mark before Chico was given his marching orders for a challenge on Louis Saha.
Swansea started the brighter and went close to an opener through Nathan Dyer, Simon Mignolet saving his drive low down to his right.
Despite their domination Swansea couldn't take advantage and it was Sunderland who took the lead against the run of play when Fletcher profited from a poor backpass by Ashley Williams to nip in and tuck the ball home.
Sunderland went close to a second when James McClean unleashed a thunderous volley that flew just over.
On the stroke of half time Swansea levelled terms when Routledge found the back of the net after running onto Nathan Dyer's flicked pass.
However, Sunderland retook the lead deep into first-half injury time when Fletcher side-footed the ball pas Michel Vorm from Sebastian Larsson's free kick.
Swansea looked the more likely to score after the break as Dyer and Jonathan De Guzman went close, and it was no surprise when they found the back of the net through Michu, the Spaniard beating Mignolet with a bullet header from De Guzman's cross.
That was before Chico was shown red but, despite their numerical advantage, Sunderland couldn't find another way through to goal.
To add to his woes regarding Chico Michael Laudrup also saw Neil Taylor go off in the first half with what looked like a bad injury.
