Mannone got the start Sunday, and made five saves and conceded three goals in the 3-1 loss to Chelsea.

Mannone was the starting keep to start the year, but was pulled for Costel Pantilimon after struggling the first 10 games. This was simply a day off for Pantilimon and Mannone is still relegated to backup duties and could be on the move in the Summer. He finished the season with two clean sheets and 35 saves in 10 games played.

Mannone was on the bench for Monday's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

It's unclear if the move is permanent, but simply due to the result, replacement Pantilimon looks to have secured the starting role for now. Mannone had a nice stretch last season, but it appears to be over for the time being.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has hinted that Mannone may be relegated to the bench in favor of Costel Pantilimon against Crystal Palace on Monday, according to the Mirror.

Mannone has made a few mistakes in the net, and the keeper is on the verge of his final exemption from the manager. Poyet is hoping to rebuild the team's confidence after giving up 10 goals in the last two matches.

Mannone allowed two goals and made three saves in the 0-2 loss to Arsenal Saturday.

It was a tough match-up for Sunderland and they looked ok, considering they lost by eight last weekend. Arsenal controlled the ball for seemingly the majority of the match and it was just a tough all around game for Sunderland. The good news is Sunderland play struggling offenses in Crystal Palace and Leicester in two of their next three matches.

The Sunderland supporters continued to support the side until the final whistle, and Mannone says he wants to help the costs of the fans that made the 700-mile journey. He said he and the team virtually gave up on the afternoon, and the fans didn't deserve that performance.

Mannone had the worst game of his career, conceding eight goals in the 8-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Yes, that wasn't a misprint, eight goals, including two own-goals in a disaster game for Sunderland. This was just a complete let-down for the Black Cats and they'll look to just forget this pathetic performance. Unfortunately, they host a potent Arsenal offense next week in what will be equally as tough of a match-up, if not harder.

Mannone conceded one goal and made four saves in a 3-1 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

Mannone and the defense have seemingly turned it around recently, only allowing one goal in the past three matches. Mannone showed last year that he can go on a binge of clean sheets and this may be the time to use him as Sunderland are in their best form of the young season. Mannone and Sunderland travel to Southampton after the international break.

Mannone got another clean sheet this weekend in the 0-0 draw to Swansea City Saturday.

Mannone recorded double digit clean sheets last year and it seems as though the defense has found its groove going back to back games with clean sheets. He was asked to do very little only seeing one shot on goal, so he's worth getting in your lineup at a cheap value. Sunderland have a favorable schedule coming playing Stoke, Southampton, and Crystal Palace in three of their next four.
