Vital saves were needed from Vito Mannone in order to keep Sunderland's fourth clean sheet of the season and importantly get the win.

The former Arsenal shot-stopper made around eight crucial stops as the Black Cats beat Everton 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Ki Sung-Yueng.

The game finished in Sunderland's favour and frankly they deserved the win. Without Mannone though it may have been yet another humiliation for Gus Poyet's side.
