Given the amount of games which actually managed to beat the weather and take place last weekend, choosing the player of the week wasn’t too difficult, yet it may still cause some debate.

Sunderland had a number of players who could have won this week’s award, however goalkeeper Craig Gordon takes the accolade after an incredible save kept his side 1-0 up in their home match against Bolton.

Danny Welbeck, who ran Gordon close this week for the award, put the Black Cats a goal up before Bolton started an onslaught on Gordon’s goal. Zat Knight looked certain to score from two-yards out but Gordon managed to recover miraculously to push the ball over the bar. No one could believe Knight had failed to score and many of Gordon’s teammates rightfully congratulated him on a save which has been likened to the many great saves in football history.
