David Moyes has been feeling the pressure of late as Everton flirt with a relegation fight, but three points on Saturday would be a huge boost to the Toffees as they look to climb the table.
Sunderland are on a three match losing streak and considering their recent history at Merseyside, this should be a comfortable win for Everton who could potentially leap into the top half of the table.
Everton are unbeaten against Sunderland in the last nine matches and are a decent price at 8/11 to register their fourth consecutive home victory over Sunderland.
Sunderland have suffered a dramatic loss of form in recent weeks and have lost their last three on the bounce. With Everton not losing in their last five games at Goodison, everything is pointing to a win for the Toffees.
However, if you’re feeling adventurous, Sunderland cannot be ruled out. Despite the Black Cats winning just once in their last six matches, they’ve found the net on all those occasions and can be backed at 4/1 to win this clash.
We could be in for a bit of a thriller at Goodison Park on Saturday and this fixture has never been shy in producing goals – 32 in the last ten games – and backing over 2.5 goals at 5/6 looks the pick of the weekend.
Once again, there are options for the more adventurous of you. Sunderland’s last six games have yielded 22 goals, while Everton haven’t been involved in a goalless draw since December – 12 games ago.
Over 3.5 goals can be backed at a very tempting 12/5.
