Sunderland v Everton Team News: Sam Allardyce names seventh unchanged line-up
Sam Allardyce persisted with the same Sunderland line-up for the Black Cats' survival chance against Everton.
The Sunderland boss named the same XI for the seventh game in a row after deciding that his players were fresh enough following their efforts in Saturday's victory over Chelsea.
There was a change on the bench with fit-again Billy Jones taking the place of Jeremain Lens.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez made three changes, with Gareth Barry, Ramiro Funes Mori and Kevin Mirallas all recalled to the line-up.
Sunderland: Mannone, Yedlin, Kone, Kaboul, van Aanholt, Kirchhoff, Cattermole, M'Vila, Khazri, Borini, Defoe. Subs: Pickford, O'Shea, Larsson, Rodwell, Watmore, N'Doye, Jones.
Everton: Robles, Pennington, Stones, Funes Mori, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Cleverley, Barkley, Mirallas, Lukaku. Subs: Howard, Gibson, Oviedo, Lennon, Niasse, Besic, Osman.
