Everton v Sunderland Odds: A Blues win to nil looks a good bet at Goodison Park

Everton start firm favourites for their Premier League clash with Sunderland at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon. David Moyes' men are up to the heady heights of fourth in the league table going into the weekend's action and they will fancy their chances against a Sunderland team that has won just one of their last 17 top-flight outings.

Even at this early stage of the season, the pressure is really beginning to mount at Sunderland and Martin O'Neill has come in for a criticism for possibly the first time in his managerial career. The Northern Irishman is renowned for getting the best out of his players but this current Sunderland squad have looked clueless at times this season, with Bet 365 pricing them 7/1 in the match odds this weekend.

In stark contrast, David Moyes is sitting pretty as his side have enjoyed a fine start to the new campaign and they are 4/9 to win and end a four-match run of draws. Everton have drawn each of their last four in all competitions and they have remarkably conceded the first goal in their last five, although they have lost none of those as they have shown tremendous spirit to turn games around.

Marouane Fellaini scored two to rescue them a point in the 2-2 draw with Fulham last weekend and he is a best price 6/1 to score first with B365 on Saturday, while Nikica Jelavic has scored four so far this season and he is 4/1 favourite to get the first goal. The only worry for Everton is the fact they have kept just one clean sheet in six but that could well change against this Sunderland outfit.

Only one team in Europe's top-five leagues have managed less shots on goal than Sunderland's 78 (Dusseldorf), while the Black Cats have managed just 12 shots on target in the Premier League. It is a really worrying statistic as they have now failed to score in their last three outings, while their only goal in their last five came courtesy of a Demba Ba own goal.

With those stats in mind it could be worth backing Everton to win to nil at 6/5, particularly as they won the last two meetings with Sunderland by a 4-0 and 2-0 scoreline. That 2-0 correct score looks a decent punt at 5/1 with Bet 365, particularly as the last 15 Everton v Sunderland Premier League meetings have seen the Toffees win 11 and lose none.

Sunderland, who are 16th in the league table, have been dismal away from home, failing to win any of their last 12 away league games, and they are hugely reliant on Steven Fletcher for goals. Fletcher has scored all five of their top-flight goals (excluding the Demba Ba OG) this season and to hedge your bets it could be worth a look at the 3/1 on offer for him to score Sunderland's first goal on Saturday.
