Mannone made three saves en route to a miracle 2-2 come back draw with Liverpool on Saturday.

Mannone is doing whatever he can to keep his team in contention for the most part of the games hauling in some good saves. Nevertheless, with constant opposition play in front of him and huge defensive lapses at moments he's unable to put together a solid fantasy outing and be trusted for most of his team's fixtures. At least, it seems like he's doing enough to warrant himself the starting job.

Mesut Ozil is one of the most expensive options on the board for Saturday's slate, but RotoWire's Alex Spalding has a number of value plays to fit the Arsenal midfielder into fantasy lineups.

Mannone recorded one save in the 1-0 hard-fought loss to Man City on Tuesday.

A fast-paced combination between several City midfielders led to confusion in Sunderland defense and left Sergio Aguero unmarked in the penalty area with the ball in his feet. Who would blame Mannone for conceding like that? Despite that Mannone is probably still on a short leash with youngster Jordan Pickford breathing in his neck. Regardless of who the starter is, though, the Sunderland keeper position is far down in the fantasy value charts with the Black Cats continuous defensive lapses.

Mannone is starting versus Man City on Tuesday.

Mannone holds on to the starting job, at least for another game, despite youngster Jordan Pickford pushing for the spot at the goal with impressive performances.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mannone collected four saves in the 1-1 draw to Bournemouth on Saturday.

Mannone had a poor reaction to Benik Afobe's header for the opening goal of the game. The ball practically went through his hands and nested in the net. The keeper, partially, redeemed himself through the rest of the game making some good saves and, at least, helping his team snatch a vital point in a crucial six-pointer.

Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce said Thursday that Mannone will start Saturday against Bournemouth, the Sunderland Echo reports.

Mannone briefly took over the starting job from Costel Pantilimon, but recently ceded the job to Jordan Pickford, who was recalled from his loan at Preston North End. However, with Pantilimon now with Watford, Mannone will re-take the top job, though he'll obviously be on a short leash.

Mannone made three saves and received a yellow card in the vital 4-2 win over Swansea on Wednesday.

Mannone has had a fairly decent beginning of his Black Cats starter's stint. Despite the four goals conceded he's got eight saves in the last three games and had done enough to help his team pick up back-to-back crucial wins and stay in contention against Liverpool before that. His inexperience shone through against the Swans, though, when earned a yellow card for wasting time with more than 20 minutes left in the game and only goal lead still for the Black Cats. A tough visit to White Hart Lane will make the skies pretty cloudy for him, though, on Saturday.

Mannone conceded one and made two saves in Sunderland's 3-1 win against Aston Villa at the Stadium Of Light on Saturday.

After the Italian's impressive display against Liverpool in their previous game, fans and analysts alike were optimistic for a clean sheet against Aston Villa and they probably would have been right had it not been for a wonder strike by Carlos Gil. It is hard to predict if this is a turning point for Sunderland or just a win against a poor Villa side but Mannone will need to either make more saves per game or keep some clean sheets to qualify him as any sort of viable fantasy option.

Mannone made three saves and conceded once in Wednesday's 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Mannone, thrust into the starting XI for this busy festive season, acquitted himself well today. Benteke's goal saw him float unmarked through the Black Cats' back line while Mannone did well to keep the deficit at just one at the end of the match. Throughout the match, Mannone was strong and named "man of the match" by the broadcast even in a losing effort. He's done more than enough to keep the job over the struggling Costel Pantilimon.
