Everton
Everton's run of six matches without defeat came to an end last weekend after an away defeat at Villa Park. Everton conceded three goals against Aston Villa which is more than they conceded in the six matches during that unbeaten run (2). Everton have the opportunity to extend their 2015 unbeaten league run at Goodison Park to nine league matches should they avoid defeat on Saturday (W4 D4). Despite having three more assists than any other defender in the Premier League this season, Leighton Baines requires two more in order to match his tally from the 2010/11 season when he reached a total of 11 assists. Only Chelsea and Southampton (11) have managed to keep more clean sheets in Premier League home matches than the Toffees [8] this season.

Possible Line ups



Sunderland
Sunderland are looking to record back to back victories for the first time this season after overcoming Southampton at the Stadium of Light last weekend. However, Sunderland have failed to win in any of their last eight away matches in the Premier League (D4 L4) and they're yet to win away from home in 2015. Dick Advocaat has taken more points from his first five matches (7) in charge of Sunderland than Gus Poyet accumulated in his final ten matches as manager. Connor Wickham is top scorer in the Premier League for Sunderland with 5 goals which is the lowest amount from a Premier League club's top scorer this season. Lee Cattermole has registered 13 yellow cards this season which is one fewer than the record for a Premier League season. Paul Ince (Wolves 2003/04), Robbie Savage (Leicester 2001/02), Mark Hughes (Southampton 1998/99) and this weekend's opponent's former midfielder Oliver Dacourt (Everton 1998/99) are the current holders of that title with 14 yellow cards.

Last season, we'd gone unbeaten at home in 2013 and then we came up against Sunderland on boxing day...

Shogun:
Anyway, this could be a difficult game but I'd like to think Martinez will work out a way to win the match. There's nothing subtle about the way Sunderland are playing under Advocaat, they get the ball to the front three strikers as quickly as possible and hope it results in a goal so we'll need to work out a way to cope with that.
