Everton vs Sunderland: start time, lineups, TV schedule, live stream and how to watch online

The Toffees take on the former Toffees.

This could get weird. So many things bond the two teams being featured on the pitch at Goodison Park on Saturday. Sunderland could trot out a lineup featuring as many as six former Everton players (Bryan Oviedo, Darron Gibson, Joleon Lescott, Jack Rodwell, Steven Pienaar and Victor Anichebe). Wow. And of course, the manager of the Black Cats, David Moyes, was the longtime boss on Merseyside.

On the flip side, Lamine Kone, the Sunderland centerback, has been an Everton target for nearly a year and may once again be sought this summer. And on a lighter note, Bradley Lowery, a terminally ill five-year-old Sunderland supporter has been embraced by the Toffees. The club donated to a fund to help get him treatment back in September. Since then, he attended the Manchester City game at Goodison Park and has been invited again for this fixture against his club. This is one of the those things that makes sports awesome.

From a football standpoint, neither side has played a game in two weeks. Sunderland enter the day at the bottom of the table with 19 points, but only two points from safety. They don’t score much, but Jermain Defoe is always dangerous. Everton remain in solid form, but will be looking for much more after the snooze-fest that was the 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough last time out.
