Everton’s 2-1 win over Swansea City on Sunday made it ten matches in a row unbeaten. At home Everton have been even better where they have gone 17 games without being beaten and have scored three or more goals in their past three.
Sunderland remain bottom of the table despite picking up back to back 0-0 draws. This has been their problem all season long, simply being unable to push for a win when they need it. In away matches they are playing some of their worst with ten matches in the Premier League without a win as well as not scoring in six.
My prediction is for an Everton win and another clean sheet to add to their tally of eight to date. Sunderland has been woeful this season despite switching managers. While they may have had back to back clean sheets, they were both against struggling teams and were preceded by losses to Tottenham and Chelsea.

Form: Everton (D, W, W, D, W, W) Sunderland (L, D, L, L, D, D)
