Sunderland put together a valiant effort against Manchester City in a 2-0 loss at the Stadium of Light on Sunday evening.
However, valiant efforts won't bring the club closer to leaving the bottom of the table with the Black Cats stuck on 19 points. With Crystal Palace's win against West Brom on Saturday, Sunderland now sits six points back of leaving the bottom three. It was another struggle offensively for David Moyes' men, who have now gone four of the last five Premier League matches without a goal. Jermain Defoe came closest in the first half with a shot that caromed off the post, which nearly gave Sunderland an early home lead. Jordan Pickford made five saves on the day to keep Sunderland in the match, but the Black Cats were undone by a quick Man City counter-attack, giving up goals on the break to Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane.

Sunderland remains bottom of the Premier League after yet another goalless outing in a 2-0 loss to Everton.

With the lone exception of a 4-0 win against Crystal Palace in Gameweek 24, the Black Cats have struggled mightily to put the ball into the back of the net. The club has been shut out in four of its last five Premier League games and only managed one shot on target against Everton on Saturday. Jermain Defoe came closest for Sunderland in the 77th minute, when he rifled a shot that beat Everton keeper Joel Robles but struck the crossbar, coming centimeters away from tying the game. Minutes later, Romelu Lukaku ended Sunderland's hopes with a punishing blow on a breakaway. The only good news comes from seeing Jordan Pickford in goal after missing the last two months. The young keeper made six saves in his first match of 2017, which saw Vito Mannone return to the bench.

Sunderland manager David Moyes confirmed that goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is available to face Everton this weekend.

The young goalkeeper has missed the last two months after suffering a knee injury on Boxing Day against Manchester United. But Pickford took the FA Cup break to recover fully, playing for the U23s last week, and now has a chance to retake his starting position from Vito Mannone on Saturday. Said Moyes: "I have a choice to make over the goalkeepers because Jordan Pickford is now back in training. I’m very fortunate to have two very good 'keepers and it’s the sort of decision you want to have. We have to see if Jordan’s ready because he’s been out for a while, but he’s training and he looks fine."

Sunderland manager David Moyes confirmed that goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will not be available for the weekend.

The 22-year-old keeper was originally expected to miss two months after suffering a knee injury on Boxing Day against Manchester United. But while Pickford returned to full training this week and was given the go ahead by the medical staff, Moyes said he will wait another week before bringing the keeper back into the team: "Jordan's back but the medical team would really like him to complete the time that the surgeon set for his recovery. He's training well and I find it hard to understand because he's diving around and he's jumping about, but his time will probably be after this weekend.As such, Jordan won't be involved but what I will say is that he's very close to being ready."

Sunderland have been boosted by the return of Jordan Pickford who re-joined his teammates in full training at the Academy of Light this week.

The Black Cats goalkeeper has been in sensational form this season, grabbing his opportunity after first choice stopper Vito Mannone had surgery following a training ground elbow injury. However, Pickford strained knee ligaments at Old Trafford on Boxing Day and has spent the last month-and-a-half recovering, fortunately his injury coincided with the return of Mannone who was restored to number one spot. But, after being given the green light to step up his rehab, Pickford is hoping to force his way into the reckoning, although David Moyes will not take any chances with the 22-year-old. Sunderland have kept consecutive clean sheets against Tottenham and Crystal Palace which includes a 4-0 win at Selhurst Park. Elsewhere, supporters are still waiting for an official update on John O’Shea, Jack Rodwell and Adnan Januzaj who picked up injuries last weekend.

Sunderland manager David Moyes could have goalkeeper Jordan Pickford back from injury earlier than initially thought.

The young goalkeeper suffered a knee injury in a Boxing Day defeat to Manchester United and he was expected to miss around two months. But Moyes confirmed Pickford is pushing for an early return in less than a month, two weeks earlier than the original timetable: "Jordan will hopefully be back sooner than we originally thought, but obviously we have to go by what the doctors and the surgeons say as well. He didn’t have surgery which is good and he’s been saying to me he feels good, so hopefully it’ll maybe be another three to four weeks."

Sunderland confirmed goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will miss around two months after sustaining a knee injury.

The young goalkeeper played the full 90 minutes in a loss to Manchester United on Boxing Day but was later assessed for a knee injury. Manager David Moyes said the damaged ligaments will need at least six weeks to fully heal. Moyes hinted that Vito Mannone is now expected to fill in after starting the first two weeks of the season before sustaining a long-term injury: "The good news is he hasn't ruptured his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament). The bad news is he's strained it. It's a major disappointment because he's been saving us points."

Sunderland face the prospect of losing Jordan Pickford for several weeks after the in-form 22-year-old was injured at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

Pickford hurt his knee in a challenge with teammate Papy Djilobodji and Man United striker Zlatan Ibrahimović but the full extent of the problem didn’t become apparent until after the game when the goalkeeper complained of discomfort and swelling. National media outlets suggest the England international looks set to miss between 6-8 weeks with Vito Mannone being readied for the trip to Turf Moor on New Year’s Eve, however, there has been no official update from the club. Pickford went for a scan on Wednesday and a true timeline cannot be ascertained until the results are known. The news is the latest in a series of setbacks, and with limited transfer funds, David Moyes could struggle to keep the Black Cats out of the relegation zone following the loss of their standout player this term.

Sunderland manager David Moyes said he sees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford as the successor to Joe Hart in the England setup.

The former Manchester United and Everton boss admitted he had the chance to take Hart on loan this season, but is happy he opted to give Pickford the chance to develop this season after Vito Mannone's injury: "I could have brought in Joe Hart, we thought he would have been ideal for us, but I had to think of Jordan’s progression too and he hasn’t let us down. You worry about young players making mistakes and it can be even more damaging when you are a goalkeeper and the mistake determines a game yet I think he has made one mistake all season. He’s mentally strong, he has put in an awful lot of hard work on and off the pitch and it is paying off for him."

Sunderland remained winless after their 2-0 loss at Stoke City on Saturday.

In a match that saw Jordan Pickford make four saves and concede twice, the goalkeeper will be asking questions of a defense that was once again poor. On the first goal Patrick van Aanholt was beaten to the ball inside the box by Joe Allen, while John O'Shea's attempted clearance just before the half led to the second. Sunderland will now hope they can grab their first win next weekend when they travel to the London Stadium next Saturday to play West Ham, and will once again see Pickford face a large workload.

It's turning out to be a breakout year for Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who received his first call-up into the England national team.

The 22-year-old was sent home from England U21 training last week after picking up a thigh injury, but has recovered in time to join the senior squad for its upcoming World Cup qualifier against Slovenia on Tuesday. The news comes after Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton sustained a minor knock that required him to withdraw from the squad. However, it's unlikely Pickford will even make the 18 for Gareth Southgate's squad with both Joe Hart and Fraser Forster ahead of him.

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.
