Sunderland play hosts to Everton at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night in the Premier League, as the home side look to move one step closer to safety.

Sunderland recorded a crucial 3-2 win last time out against Chelsea. Diego Costa fired Chelsea into the lead, only for Wahbi Khazri to equalise. Chelsea regained the lead in first half stoppage-time through Nemanja Matic.

The Black Cats completed a spirited second half comeback, with goals from Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe enough to seal a priceless victory for the north east side, as they are now a point clear of the relegation zone, although this is a game in-hand on rivals Newcastle.

Everton’s poor campaign continued last time out at champions Leicester, as the Toffees suffered a 3-1 defeat at the King Power Stadium. Jamie Vardy opened the scoring for the Foxes, before Andy King doubled their lead.

Vardy scored his second from the penalty spot, only to spurn the chance of a hat-trick by missing a second spot-kick. Everton scored a late consolation through Belgian international Kevin Mirallas.

The Toffees now look set to finish in the bottom half of the Premier League table for a consecutive campaign and boss Roberto Martinez now seems to be on borrowed time in the Toffees hot seat.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met on 29 occasions in the Premier League, with Everton recording 15 wins, Sunderland winning eight times and six games resulting in draws.

The 14 Premier League meetings at the Stadium of Light have been very even, as both teams have recorded five wins each and four games have been drawn.

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has a poor managerial record against Everton, having suffered 14 defeats in 26 meetings, also winning on seven occasions and picking-up five draws.

Sunderland are unbeaten in their last four outings in the Premier League, but have won just one of their last five home games in the Premier League. The Black Cats have also won just two of their ten outings in the Premier League.

Everton have won just one of their last eight games in the Premier League and have won just three of their last 14 away games in the Premier League.

Team Selection And News

The home side have a virtually fully-fit squad, with only full-back Billy Jones a doubt for the clash. Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce is likely to name an unchanged starting line from the victory over Chelsea.

Everton have a host of personnel problems ahead of this clash. The Toffees will be without centre-back Phil Jagielka and winger Gerard Deulofeu through injury, while Gareth Barry and Seamus Coleman are major injury doubts. Argentinian centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori is available for selection following suspension and could replace youngster Matthew Pennington at centre-back.

Possible Sunderland Team Selection

Mannone, Yedlin, Kone, Kaboul, Van Aanholt, Kirchhoff, Borini, Cattermole, M’Vila, Khazri, Defoe

Possible Everton Team Selection

Robles, Oviedo, Stones, Funes Mori, Baines, McCarthy, Besic, Mirallas, Barkley, Lennon, Lukaku

Match Prediction

Sunderland’s performances have improved of late and the Black Cats have given themselves a very good chance of escaping the drop. Everton have very little to play for this season and Sam Allardyce’s side could record another crucial win in this clash.
