Betting tips and match preview | Barclays Premier League
Sunderland welcome Everton to the Stadium Of Light in the penultimate game of the season for both sides with Sunderland looking to complete another great escape with a win against Everton condemning both Newcastle and Norwich to relegation.
The Black Cats come into this fixture on the back of a stunning 3-2 win at home against Chelsea at the weekend and they will be looking to build on that result with a home win against Everton, who lost at the weekend to Champions Leicester City.
Sunderland’s form in the Premier League this season has been mixed, they have won 8 matches this season and have been in the relegation zone for most of the season but with a win tonight at home they can send bitter rivals Newcastle down and secure their Premier League status, one the fans will be desperate to see.
They find themselves in 17th position in the Premier League and with just one more win they can secure another great escape.
Everton have been somewhat of a bogey team for Sunderland in the past, the last fixture between the two sides in November resulted in a 6-2 win for the Toffees and a 7-1 defeat for the Black Cats in 2007. They can put that history to bed with a win here tonight though.
Sunderland’s final fixtures are against Everton and Watford. They are also looking for their 9th win in 37 matches this season and their 6th win at home.
Everton Looking For Response
Roberto Martinez’s men come into this match in poor form in the Premier League after losing against Leicester 3-1 last weekend.
This has been an appalling season for Everton, with the players at their disposal and the expectation from fans scrambling for a top ten finish simply isn’t good enough. Pride and the potential to be playing for the club next season is all these players have left to play for.
There is expected to be a change of manager in the summer with the likes of Manuel Pellegrini available and with new ownership at the club they will look to strengthen both on and off the pitch.
Martinez has been very poor this season and the clubs defence have suffered, they have always looked like scoring but are far too fragile at the back and the lack of development for John Stones is something that will count against the Spaniard.
They have a poor record in their last six matches with only one win in their last six and they will need to win their remaining two matches and even that might not be enough to save Martinez.
Their remaining fixtures see them face Sunderland and Norwich City, Everton will be looking for their 11th win in 37 games this season and are looking to secure their 6th away win of the campaign.
Sunderland head into this fixture with a record of two wins, three draws and one defeat in their last six matches. Everton have a record of two defeats, one win and three draws in their last six matches.
Both teams are 8/13 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Sunderland are Jermain Defoe at 3/1 with Dame Ndoye at 9/2. For Everton Romelu Lukaku is at 7/1 with Ross Barkley, Arouna Kone and Oumar Niasse at 10/1.
The last meeting between the two sides at the Stadium Of Light resulted in a 1-1 draw and the odds of the same result are 6/1.
