This week Everton is back in action after suffering a disappointing loss at the hands of Aston Villa last weekend. That was a major letdown considering the manner in which the Blues took down Manchester United in their previous match. Though the season is almost finished, both clubs have an added incentive to get the win. Sunderland are currently sitting at eighteenth in the league table and fighting to avoid relegation. Leicester City's resurgence has definitely not helped their cause. Everton on the other hand could have a shot at landing a newly allocated Europa League spot for next season; though moving past West Ham and the reds qualifying through their standings is a must. Working in Everton's favor, Sunderland has not won an away game in 2015 and there's no reason to allow that streak to end.
