Premier League Preview: Everton - Sunderland

The Wearsiders have not beaten the Blues since David Moyes has been in charge, with their last victory coming way back in 1996 with a 3-1 win.



Coleman, Heitinga, Jagielka, Baines
Pienaar, Osman, Neville, Mirallas


Bardsley, Cuellar, O'Shea, Rose
Johnson, Gardner, Cattermole, McClean

Everton boss David Moyes has almost a full squad to choose from for the visit of Sunderland. Only Darron Gibson (groin) is unavailable as he continues to recover from the injury sustained in September. Jonny Heitinga should remain at center back in place of Sylvain Distin, who was dropped to the bench last week against Fulham. Seamus Coleman is expected to continue at right back.

Kevin Mirallas played last week against the Cottagers despite picking up a knock against Liverpool, and is expected to be fit to play against the Black Cats in his role wide of the left while Steven Pienaar will play on the right.

Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill has no new injury worries with long-term absentees Wes Brown (calf) and Titus Bramble (hip) the only players still unavailable. However he will be without midfielder David Meyler who left on Thursday to join Hull on-loan.

Danny Rose, was left on the bench in the defeat to Aston Villa but he should be recalled in place of Jack Colback who will drop to the bench as his usual spot in midfield is filled by Craig Gardner who reverted back to the middle following Phil Bardsley’s return to fitness. James McClean could also return in place of the out-of-form Sebastian Larsson meaning Adam Johnson may switch from the left flank to the right.

  • Everton has not lost to Sunderland since David Moyes has been manager of the club, a run that has stretched 17 games and has included 12 wins.

  • After his double last week against Fulham Marouane Fellaini (pictured right) is the Toffees' top scorer this season with five goals.

  • Moyes’ side is unbeaten in its last seven Premier League games, however it has only won two of those matches, drawing 2-2 four times in that period.

  • The Toffees have not kept a clean sheet in the top flight since  September.

  • Sunderland has not won at Goodison Park since November 1996 when it recorded a 3-1 victory under the management of Peter Reid.

  • The visitor has only won once in its last 17 Premier League games.

  • No Black Cats player has found the net this season apart from Steven Fletcher who has five goals. Their only other goal came from a Demba Ba own goal in their Wear-Tyne derby.

  • It is little wonder Martin O’Neill’s side has struggled for goals as it has hit the target just 13 times this season, the lowest total from any league in Europe.
