Stan Collymore predicts Everton v Sunderland

By Harvey Byrne

Stan Collymore has tipped Everton to run out a convincing 3-1 victory over Sunderland on Saturday afternoon at Goodison Park.

The outspoken pundit believes the Toffees will extend their impressive unbeaten run to nine league matches against David Moyes’ bottom placed side.

The Merseyside giants were held to a 0-0 draw against Teesside club Middlesbrough in their last outing.

But, Collymore shared on his personal Twitter account that he believes they will earn all three points against a Sunderland side who suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Southampton in their last match.

Seventh placed Everton will be looking to make up the ground on Manchester United, who won’t be involved in the league this week due to the EFL Cup final on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees are currently seven points behind the English giants and it is felt that if they place in the top seven when the season reaches it’s end that it would have been a successful first season for Ronald Koeman.

Meanwhile, former boss Moyes is having contrasting fortunes with the Black Cats as they sit two points away from safety.

Ex-Everton players Darron Gibson, Bryan Oviedo, Steve Pienaar and Joleon Lescott could all make their returns to Goodison Park at the weekend too with Victor Anichibe currently out injured.
