Defoe got off six shots, with four on goal in a 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Defoe was picked up in the January transfer window to get some goals for Sunderland and he did just that as he helped keep them out of the relegation zone. In his 17 games played, he scored four goals and may force Sunderland to re-new his contract as they desperately need offense going forward.

Defoe snatched a goal on two shots in the 2-0 win over Everton Saturday.

Defoe has grabbed four goals since coming to Sunderland in the last transfer window and he's given the Black Cats exactly what they have asked for. Defoe has another good matchup in their next match when they host Leicester a week from today.

Defoe grabbed the winning goal in the 1-0 win over Newcastle Sunday.

This goal was as big as any this season as it not only grabbed a win against Sunderland's biggest rivals, but furthered the distance from the drop zone. It was Defoe's only shot in the match, but he made it count grabbing his third goal for the Black Cats. Defoe has a good matchup next Saturday when Sunderland host Crystal Palace.

Defoe was scoreless yet again Saturday in the 1-0 loss to West Ham.

Defoe got off to a hot start scoring in two of his first three matches, but has cooled off since going scoreless in his last six starts. It's hard to score when your team has only one goal in that six game span, but it just shows the lack of offense that Sunderland has. He has only maxed out at three shots in his time at Sunderland, so it remains to be seen if he can be a consistent scorer at this point in his career. Sunderland have their Tyne-Wear rivalry match in their next game when they host Newcastle in two weeks time.

Defoe had three shots in the 0-0 draw to West Brom Saturday.

After being questionable to play, Defoe was able to take the field in the scoreless draw to West Brom. After scoring in his first two matches he hasnt been able to find the back of the net in the past two, but it's just a matter of time as Defoe seemingly walks into goals when he's starting. Look for him to start again next Saturday when Sunderland travel to take on Manchester United.
