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.

If you don't want to pay top-dollar for Romelu Lukaku this weekend, two of his teammates may provide just as much value at a much cheaper cost.

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.

Mannone was busy once again Wednesday, recording five saves and allowing two goals in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool.

Mannone seems to be regularly saving around five shots a game and his defense seems to be faltering. With that said, this was a relatively a good performance for Sunderland, only allowing two goals to a team who puts up big scores on a regular basis at home. Keep an eye on Sunderland to see if they can crawl out of the relegation zone, as Mannone has surely secured his starting spot for the remainder of the season and possibly next season if they can stay in the Premier League.

Mannone seemed to be busy all day Saturday recording six saves as his team lost 0-2 to Norwich.

Mannone played fairly well considering his team was down a man and were out-shot on goal 8-2. He's had a very solid year and while his team have not been living up to standards, Mannone has proven to be a very legitimate and worthwhile goalkeeper.

Mannone got out of his mini-slump Saturday by recording a clean sheet on five shots in the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.

After allowing nine goals in his last three games, this is a good sign for Mannone. With that said, he was facing a Palace team that really struggles to score. Sunderland travel to Norwich and Liverpool for their next two matches and that should be a better indicator of where this team is at defensively.

Mannone allowed four goals in a 1-4 drubbing at Arsenal on Saturday.

Mannone has been out of form lately after having such a good stretch. This is six goals allowed in his last two matches, and the defense has really let him down, allowing 18 shots on goal in the past two matches. They should be able to bounce back next week at home against a struggling West Brom.

Mannone made seven saves, but allowed two goals during Saturday's 0-2 loss to Hull City.

Sunderland defender Wes Brown picked up a red card in the fourth minute, and the 10-man squad simply couldn't hold out for the entire match. It was a frustrating development for Mannone's fantasy owners, who saw an easy clean sheet on the fixture list. Things get very difficult now, with matches against Manchester City, Arsenal, West Brom and Liverpool in the next four.
