Sunderland v Everton: Live GameThread

New, comments

Everton are desperate for three points to stay in the Champions League/Europa dogfight as they travel to the Stadium of Light.

Mike Hewitt

This is a must win for guys. Lose and we're out of the Champions League race and barely holding on for a Europa place. Draw and we're pretty much left for dead. Three points keeps us in the hunt.

And let's all pray for Tottenham to lose or draw tomorrow against Manchester City. We seriously need for some of these other matches to go our way.

Some squad news: Barkley has been left out of the lineup after putting on a solid performance last week, being replaced by Osman. Heitinga comes in for Jagielka, who is nowhere to be found on the team sheet.

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Distin, Heitinga, Gibson, Osman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Mirallas, Anichebe.

Subs: Mucha, Oviedo, Naismith, Duffy, Neville, Jelavic, Barkley.

Sunderland Starting XI: Mignolet, Rose, N'Diaye, Larsson, Graham, Colback, O'Shea, Johnson, McClean, Cuellar, Sessegnon.

Subs: Westwood, Kilgallon, Vaughan, Mangane, Mandron, Marrs, Laidler.
