Johnson took two shots, with one landing on goal, during Saturday's 0-2 loss to Hull City.

Defender Wes Brown picked up a red card less than five minutes into the match, leaving Sunderland with only 10 men the rest of the way. Despite the favorable matchup, Johnson wasn't able to get loose to extend his goal-streak, which ends at four matches (six goals during that span). Up next is a very rough stretch for Sunderland, who face off against Manchester City, Arsenal, West Brom, and Liverpool in their next four league matches.

England manager Roy Hodgson will watch Johnson face Hull on Saturday with the potential to bring him into the World Cup squad due to his current run of good performances, according to the Daily Mail.

England will have one more friendly match in March before turning full attention to the World Cup. Johnson's great form has come at the perfect time as Hodgson is looking to fill out the few remaining places in the squad.

Johnson scored in the 23rd minute of Saturday's match against Newcastle.

Johnson scored off a rebounded save by Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul for his sixth goal in his last four Premier League matches. There may not be a hotter player in the Premier League right now and he'll look to keep his streak going next weekend against Hull City at the Stadium of Light.

Johnson was at it yet again, scoring the only goal in the 1-0 victory over Stoke City on Wednesday.

Johnson is beyond scorching hot at this point. He now has five goals in his last three games and is really the only consistent offensive weapon for Sunderland. Everyone should be considering Johnson right now, as he is on a Suarez-esque run the past few matches.

Johnson continued his glistening form, contributing a goal and an assist in the 2-2 draw against Southampton on Saturday.

Johnson has been scorching his last two matches providing four goals and an assist. It seems as though the Man City castoff has finally regained that form that made him such a sought out prospect. Everyone knows he has the talent to do these things, but its just a matter of consistency. Keep using Johnson while he's on fire, but be wary of a regression that's nearly inevitable.

Johnson scored in the 29th, 69th and 85th minutes during Saturday's 4-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage. He also assisted on Ki Sung-Yueng's 41st minute goal.

A huge day for Johnson, who entered the match with only one goal this season in league play. His assist was just his second this year, underscoring just how surprising it was. However, he did score against Carlisle in the FA Cup on January 5, giving him four goals in his last three matches in all competitions (he came off the bench against Manchester United in a Capital One Cup on Tuesday).

Johnson did not play in last weekend's match against Cardiff due to illness, the Sunderland Echoreports.

Johnson has been in-and-out of the Sunderland starting XI this season, and remains a very weak fantasy option.

Johnson scored in the 37th minute of Sunderland's 2-1 loss to Tottenham on Saturday.

Johnson came off the bench in Sunderland's last two matches but showed Saturday why he should get his spot back in the starting XI.
