Everton have confirmed that the under-21s’ remaining group stage fixture in the Premier League International Cup against Sunderland is next Thursday, 5 March.

The tie was originally scheduled for Monday, 2 February, but had to be postponed as the would-be visitors had FA Youth Cup commitments that same week.

But now the clash has been rescheduled and will take place at Southport FC’s Merseyrail Community Stadium.

Everton’s recent 2-1 defeat at home to Group D counterparts Villarreal in the competition means that the clash against the North East club is a must-win.

The kick-off time has been set for 7pm.
