Mannone gave up two goals and made four saves in the 2-2 draw to Tottenham Saturday.

It's been a tough start to the season for Mannone and it was another tough day at the office for him today as Spurs were bombarding Sunderland all afternoon. Spurs got off 15 shots and seemingly had the ball the whole game with a possession mark of over 60%. Look for Mannone to possibly get his first clean sheet next weekend against a very poor offense in Burnley.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mannone barely missed a clean sheet yet again in the 1-0 loss to QPR Saturday.

Mannone has looked solid, but has just been missing clean sheets allowing only four goals in his first three games. The defense looks solid and but its always one let down that comes back to bite them. They allowed a late goal into extra time in the first half and seemed a bit put off at that point. They'll look to bounce back in two weeks when they host Tottenham.

Mannone allowed one goal and recorded two saves in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.

A successful performance from Sunderland, as their defense looked fairly efficient for most of the game. Mannone had a great stretch last season of good results and they have a solid chance of getting a clean sheet next weekend against a struggling QPR side that lost 4-0 to Tottenham on Sunday.

Mannone allowed two goals and made three saves in a 2-2 draw with West Brom on Saturday.

After an excellent campaign last season, Mannone got off to a mediocre start this season. While West Brom doesn't exactly boast a lethal attack, Mannone will get a QPR side next Sunday that was shut out by Hull City on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mannone really snatched the goalkeeper role for Sunderland, grabbing 11 clean sheets in just 29 games last season.

Mannone had a true breakout season last year and really carried the Black Cats out of the dreaded relegation zone. He replaced a struggling Keiren Westwood just nine games into the season last year and never looked back. If his form continues, he could be a fine play in fantasy this upcoming season.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
