Everton v Sunderland: Live GameThread

This is a pretty damn cool photograph - Scott Heavey

Let's get another exciting draw folks! Everton look to not start on the back foot for once and not let up a goal to begin the first half against Sunderland. They will also see if their defense won't collapse at least four times this match. It's tough, you know.

Journalist: How many points do you think is a reasonable estimate for the remaining fixtures this season?

David Moyes: I think it's a little early for that, right?

Journalist: No

DM: 28 points

Journalist: Wait, 28 points from 28 remaining fixtures?

DM: Yes, I'm hoping for draws against everyone.

Journalist: You're content with just draws in every match?

DM: Absolutely! Do you know how good the bottom of the Premier League is! It's the strongest league in the world!

Journalist: But what about Champions League aspirations?

DM: We don't have money for that

Journalist: But you're sitting at 4th right now and that's with a couple of injuries so far

DM: Sshhhh, stop brainwashing the fans to think we can make the CL. We need to keep expectations down. Have you not noticed. We only overachieve when expectations are low. When they are high we vastly underachieve.

Journalist: So what is your expectation?

DM: Not getting relegated

Journalist: So what do you do in training with all this talent then?

DM: Have you ever heard the Kendrick Lamar song "Swimming Pools"?

Journalist: No, why?

DM: That song is about me. I'm not even sober right now. I'll show you how to turn it up a notch
