A trip to Sunderland for Everton tomorrow as the toffees try to continue their five game unbeaten streak. Roberto Martinez side have climbed the Premier League table during this unbeaten run moving from seventeenth to sixth although Saturday's games have pushed them down the table again. If Everton win tomorrow they could rise as high as sixth again. Lukaku and Eto will be key to Everton's chances against a Sunderland side looking to build on their win last weekend. Evertong have one of the best defences in the league over the last five games conceding only one goal in that stretch. If Lukaku and Eto can find the net then Everton could be looking at another win.
While Sunderland won in Sehurst Park last weekend but it was game in which they were dominated but managed to get the scores which at times is all that matters in a results orientated busiess. Gus Poyet has been vocal about needing more from his players on game day and last weekend they did give 100%, defended well and got luck when they needed it.Wickham, Fletcher and Cattermole did well but Cattermoles bookng means he missesout tomorrow through suspension. OShea and Brown were rock solid at the back even though Brown scored an own goal. The black cats need a win given that three of their next four games are against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

While i was impressed with the effort of Sunderland last week I just feel like the team is lacking leaders and with Cattermole missing tomorrow there is a good chance Sunderland get over run in midfield by a really good Everton midfield. I am taking Everton to get the win and move back up into the top six.
