Mannone finished his breakout season with 11 clean sheets and pulling his team out of relegation in his 29 games played.

Sunderland lost eight of their first nine games and then Mannone was inserted into the lineup, drawing a huge spark for the Black Cats. He was second in the league in saves with 130, playing far fewer matches then any other goalie in the top-10. Mannone has secured the number one spot and is someone to watch in coming seasons.

Mannone had a disappointing day Sunday conceding three goals in the 3-1 loss to Swansea City

Mannone still had a fantastic season helping Sunderland avoid what seemed to be a sure relegation . He finished the season with 11 clean sheets and really captured the starting role when snatching it in November. After this fine campaign, Mannone will likely be the starting goalie next season for Sunderland as well.

Mannone capped off Sunderland's Premier League survival by recording a clean sheet in the 2-0 win over West Brom on Wednesday.

There's no telling where this team would be without the heroics of Mannone this season. They had a total of four points before inserting him into the starting XI in November and since then they have been a mid-table side recording 34 points in just 28 games. He is now in double digits for clean sheets and will look to cap off the fine campaign this weekend hosting Swansea City.

Mannone's fine campaign continued Saturday as he grabbed another clean sheet in the 1-0 win at Manchester United on Saturday.

Mannone has just been a great find for Sunderland and really was the catalyst to pulling them out of relegation. Sunderland have now beaten Chelsea and Manchester United on the road in just the past three weeks. Mannone has been an excellent fantasy player as well, and he is likely to remain in his position next season.

Mannone made one save during Sunderland's 4-0 win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

Coming off a 14-save outing in last weekend's shocking win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Mannone had a much easier time Sunday against Cardiff. It was Mannone's first clean sheet since a scoreless draw against Crystal Palace on March 15, and he now has nine on the season, along with 123 saves in 26 games.

Mannone had an amazing day Saturday, recording 14 saves and beating Chelsea 2-1.

Mannone might have had the best game by a goalkeeper all season, recording an astounding 14 saves and getting a win at Stamford Bridge. This was a very surprising result as a team fighting for survival bests a team at home fighting for the league title. Mannone has really been a bright spot for the Black Cats and has proven to be a starting-caliber goalkeeper in fantasy. Look for Sunderland to battle these last three games in a desperate attempt to remain in the Premier League.

Mannone recorded three saves but was undone by an own goal to lose 1-0 to Everton on Saturday.

Mannone and Sunderland bounced back after getting destroyed by Spurs last week, but they were unable to grab any points. While it seems as though Sunderland are going to be relegated, Mannone and Sunderland will surely give every game a fight and clean sheets are the only way to have a chance to stay in the Premier League. With that said, they play at Stamford Bridge next weekend against a strong Chelsea side, so a clean sheet seems highly unlikely in that one.

Mannone conceded five goals in a tough 5-1 loss to Tottenham on Monday.

This was just a nightmare day for Mannone by no fault of his own. The defense allowed an incredible 29 shots (11 on target) and just fell apart in the second half, allowing four goals after being tied at half. Sunderland have a very tough matchup again next weekend, as they host Everton. The team is starting to have the look of a squad who knows its relegated fate.
