Connor Wickham, Sunderland – Forward

Staring relegation in the face, Sunderland took home a 2-2 draw from Etihad stadium on Wednesday night. Conceding a goal early to Manchester City, Sunderland buckled down and gave City quite the scare. After only scoring 1 goal in his first 37 appearances, unlikely hero Wickham picked up two second half goals in a matter of 10 minuted to give the Black Cats the lead. Emanuele Giaccherini picked up the assists on both goals. Sunderland looked to be on the way home with an essential three points, but a late goal from Samir Nasri that trickled off Vito Mannone forced the draw. Source: OptaJoe
