Johnson only had one shot in the 1-0 loss to Liverpool Saturday, but nailed the crossbar on his only effort.

This would have been four goals in less then a month for Johnson and he has clearly found the form he lost at the beginning of the season. Johnson also led the team in drawn fouls with five and also led the team with eight crosses. Johnson has a fine opportunity to score in their next match against Tottenham next Saturday, against a defense that just cant hold a clean sheet.

Johnson grabbed a goal off a penalty in the 3-2 loss to Manchester City Thursday.

Johnson was very fortunate to score on his former team as this was his only shot of the entire match. This is now three goals in less then two weeks so it appears Johnson has found some form after struggling the majority of the season. Look for him to start next Saturday when the Black Cats host Liverpool.

Johnson scored on his only shot in the opening minute of Sunderland's 3-1 loss to Hull City Friday.

The opening goal was the first action of the game and it proved to be the only positive action for Johnson all game long. After having a match winner last week, Johnson may be on a bit of a hot streak and would be worth inserting into your lineups as he can get hot in a hurry. Johnson and Sunderland travel to the Midlands to take on Aston Villa this Sunday.

Johnson scored the match-winner in the 90th minute of Sunderland's 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Sunday.

Johnson, who had eight goals and five assists in 36 Premier League matches last season, hasn't been nearly as productive this term, as the goal was his second of the campaign and first since Sept. 13 against Spurs. However, it couldn't have come at a better time for Sunderland, who have now won four consecutive Tyne-Wear derbies.

Johnson, who missed Wednesday's match against Manchester City with a quad injury, is expected to play Saturday at Liverpool, manager Gus Poyet said Thursday.

Johnson bagged eight goals last season and seemed poised for a breakout this term, but it hasn't happened, as he's netted just once in 11 games and has failed to record an assist. While a trip to Anfield on Saturday could help his cold streak, he can't be expected to produce significantly.

Johnson got a start Saturday and got off two shots in the 0-0 draw with Leicester City.

Johnson got a start in what seemed to be a more forward position to possibly get him back in form. He looked more effective as a forward, so Sunderland could stick with the 4-3-3 formation to see if they can get out of the offensive rut they're in. Sunderland have a nightmare schedule approaching, playing Chelsea and Man City in their next two matches.

Johnson got the nod to start Sunday, but didn't record any shots in the 1-1 draw to Everton.

Johnson has been on and off the bench in his past four and it really seems to be messing with his rhythm recording only one goal all season long. These no shot performances are disappointing and it remains to be seen if he will even stay in the starting XI. Keep an eye on Johnson as they travel to Leicester after the international break.

Johnson was an unused sub in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday

Johnson has struggled for most of the season and has now been a bench player in two of the last three matches. He is still one of Sunderland's best offensive weapons, so its definitely a situation to monitor as the season progresses.
