Everton will be aiming to continue their fantastic Premier League form on Monday afternoon when they host a Sunderland team that sit two points and two places behind them, as punters pile in on Nicola Jelovic to score first at 6/1.
David Moyes’ men have won three of their last four games with a draw at Norwich City last time out ending their three game winning run. It means that they sit 7th in the table, still a point above their arch rivals Liverpool.
This is one of their main aims for the rest of the season of course – to get the better of Liverpool. If they could finish above Kenny Dalglish’s big-spending team, it could would be an achievement to be proud of.
They meet Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend of course, so it will be key for them to stay focused for the arrival of Sunderland. Premier League points are still very important for Everton, even if the game at Wembley is already being heavily discussed.
As for Sunderland, they managed to hold Tottenham to a 0-0 draw on Saturday and this extended their unbeaten run in the league to three games. It means that Martin O’Neill’s men sit 9th in the table and could overtake Everton with a win on Monday.

It wasn’t too long ago that these two teams met of course. Everton needed two games to progress past Sunderland in the FA Cup quarter-final and there is no doubt that the Black Cats will want revenge for this.
Coming 48 hours after they last played, this is bound to be a big test for both teams and there is no doubt that both managers could make a change or two.
Everton’s home advantage means they are the favourites – they have won four of their last five games at Goodison Park – but this should be a very competitive contest. It gets underway at 3pm on Monday afternoon.
