Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and many betting site services praised Adam Johnson for his performance in the match on Monday against Stoke.
Many people with a betting shop were very happy to see that Paolo Di Canio’s squad was able to secure a vital point in their struggle against Premier League relegation by saving a 1-1 draw despite going a player down.
And after Johnson was one of the outstanding players at the Stadium of Light, Mignolet spoke about the “spark” that the former Manchester City wideman has, and betting site services know very well what a talented player he is.
“Adam played really well and created a lot of chances,” he told the club’s official website.
“He worked really hard not only in possession but also when Stoke had the ball and it’s not very easy with 10 men.
“He kept running and they deserve a lot of credit for that.
“We know Adam has got that creativity to spark something in the middle of the pitch and if he can get the ball at his feet he can be dangerous, not just from his crossing, but also scoring goals.”
Mignolet then explained how Di Canio was able to lift his men with the Wearside outfit 1-0 down and a player light against the side Tony of Pulis, and many people with a betting shop were delighted with what they saw.
“We didn’t start the game as we wanted to; we conceded an early goal and then afterwards with 10 men it was even more difficult,” he added.
And betting site services could also see that it was getting tough on the pitch.
“A couple of the lads’ heads went down at half-time and, as you know, when you’re 1-0 behind with 10 men and it’s a home game you want the three points so it was going to be very difficult.
“The gaffer tried to lift our heads and tried to give us more confidence and I think second-half we did our best and worked really hard.
“We stuck at it and tried to do our best; we battled really hard in the second half, together with the crowd – they gave us a lift.
Do you have players? We can handle them for you.
“I think in the end we definitely deserved the point.”
Betting site services saw a great performance by Johnson, and are eager to see how the player and his side will continue to do.
