Jordan Pickford continues to impress for David Moyes and was responsible for keeping Sunderland in the match, but Tottenham's one goal was enough to grab all the points in the 1-0 result at White Hart Lane.
Sunderland were able to get a deal done post-transfer window by adding Mika to their choice of keepers with Vito Mannone still recovering from injury, but Pickford is making a case that he should be the first choice option. Tottenham peppered the Sunderland net, especially in the first half, but Pickford displayed the composure of a veteran, making eight saves on the day and keeping Sunderland in a position to earn a result. The attack could not do their part though as they were the latest club to be denied by a stout Tottenham defense, who have now only conceded two goals through five games. Adnan Januzaj was sent off on the 90 minute mark after collecting his second yellow card, but he will be able to serve his suspension during the League Cup tie with QPR in the coming midweek and will be available again next weekend when the Black Cats aim to grab their first win of the season against Crystal Palace.

Sunderland failed to sign a goalkeeper on Deadline Day which makes Jordan Pickford the default starter until Vito Mannone returns from injury.

The Black Cats looked to have a deal in place to sign Mika Domingues from Boavista on a two-year contract, but even though both sides reportedly were ready to shake hands, the deal did not get completed by the deadline. Pickford only has Max Stryjek behind him and Stryjek has next to no experience at this level of football. On a positive note, Mannone has had successful surgery to repair the torn ligaments in his elbow and, according to him, will be back sooner than the original three month estimate. While Elden Jakupovic was a serviceable 4.0m defender in FPL to start the season, Pickford looks to be the only option at that price now after Hull signed David Marshall.
