Sunderland: Keeper warns rivals Sunderland: Keeper warns rivals

The Magpies went above Sunderland at the weekend when they beat Crystal Palace, whilst at the same time Sam Allardyce’s men could only draw at Stoke, a result which dropped them back into the bottom three.

Mannone still believes Sunderland are in the best position due to the fact they have a game in hand over their rivals and a superior goal difference.

He told the Echo: “We have been playing well for a while now, and have been solid. It’s just a shame that we didn’t gain enough points when we played Southampton, Newcastle and West Brom.

“That is a small shame, but we are still in it and itÂ’s still in our own hands. It is down to us now.”
