Everton vs. Sunderland
Minute Commentary
90' SUNDERLAND HOLD ON
Sung-Yueng Ki's first half penalty gave Sunderland the victory following a desperate second half, which saw Everton throw everything at the opposition including their six-foot six- inch substitute goalkeeper. The home side have only themselves to blame after a mix up between Tim Howard and Leon Osman saw Howard foul Ki and give the Black Cats a penalty. The referee was also forced to send the keeper off and Ki was able to dispatch the penalty past substitute Joel. Following the goal, Sunderland retreated back onto the edge of their own box and rarely escaped forward as the ten men of Everton dominated. However, the home side simply could not find a way through with Vito Mannone making several great saves to see his side pick up three points.
90' FULL TIME
Lee Probert blows the final whistle.
90' SCRAMBLE
Everton have thrown everything at Sunderland including their keeper, but Sunderland managed to stand firm.
90' ADDED TIME
Three minutes will be added on and Everton are incensed as Steven Fletcher spent at least three minutes getting treatment to a head injury.
89' WILD SHOT
Seamus Coleman initially does well by beating his man, but then he hits a shot that he gets all wrong and goes miles wide.
86' SUNDERLAND SUBSTITUTION
Jozy Altidore replaces the out of sorts Steven Fletcher.
84' GREAT SAVE
Ross Barkley hits a stunning free kick, but once again Vito Mannone makes a stunning save. From the resulting corner Nikica Jelavic beats the keeper, but sees his header cleared off the line.
81' SUNDERLAND STAND FIRM
The away side continue to repel attack after attack. This time Gareth Barry gets a sight of goal, but Vito Mannone saves with ease.
77' FLETCHER THROUGH
That is a massive chance for Sunderland as Steven Fletcher finds himself clean through, but the striker hits a right-foot shot wide of the goal. An amazing miss.
76' EVERTON SUBSTITUTION
Nikica Jelavic comes on for Steven Pienaar. Now Everton really will push.
75' GREAT SAVE
Bryan Oviedo comes inside and nearly produces the bit of magic that Everton need. The full back hits a great strike that looks destined for the net until Vito Mannone tips it wide.
73' JELAVIC WARMING UP
Nikica Jelavic is going to come on for Everton, but who will come off? Romelu Lukaku has been poor, but with the home side needing a goal will Roberto Martinez go with two up front?
69' SUNDERLAND SUBSTITUTION
Gus Poyet opts to make a change and brings on Emanuele Giaccherini for Jack Colback.
67' JUST WIDE
More Everton pressure as Bryan Oviedo gets down the left to cross. Vito Mannone punches clear, but only as far as Ross Barkley, who hits a low drive that is only inches wide.
63' GOOD SAVE
Steven Fletcher does very well to hold the ball up and get a shot in that Joel gets down to. Goodison breathes a collective sigh of relief.
61' SUNDERLAND SURVIVE
The away side have got through Everton's best spell of the game, but Sunderland continue to sit very deep and invite pressure. Can the Black Cats continue to stand firm?
57' OVIDEO!
Romelu Lukaku pulls out wide and cross into the box. Bryan Oviedo looks to be lurking at the back post, but Sunderland get back to concede the corner. It is all Everton.
55' DOUBLE SAVE
Bryan Oviedo swings a great ball into the box and it looks like the captain has equalised as Phil Jagielka gets in a header at goal, but Vito Mannone saves well. The keeper does well to also save the second attempt by Romelu Lukaku.
53' EVERTON PRESSURE
Finally the home side are showing a little bit of fight. Everton are camped in the Sunderland half and Romelu Lukaku goes down under a challenge. The striker wants a penalty, but has to make do with a corner. Was that another poor decision by Lee Probert?
49' REFEREE BOOED
Lee Probert is not endearing himself to the Goodison faithful as he has now given a foul by Romelu Lukaku, when he hardly touched the defender.
46' BIG CHANCE
Everton continue in the same way they ended the half with some awful defending. Sebastian Larsson picks out Mobido Diakite in the box and the defender smashes the ball over the bar, but the referee gives a corner.
45' SECOND HALF
The two sides are out and we are back underway. Ross Barkley has replaced Kevin Mirallas.
45' SUNDERLAND LEAD
Sunderland find themselves in front as Everton have their worst half of their season, which has gone from flat to insipid and then bizarre. The home side had struggled to break down a defensive Black Cats side, but then Tim Howard and Leon Osman were involved in a mix up that saw Howard play ‘double jeopardy' and foul Sung-Yueng Ki in the area. The referee was forced to send the keeper from the pitch and award Sunderland a penalty, which Ki sent past substitute Joel. Towards the end of the half, Everton had a spell with only nine men on the pitch when Kevin Mirallas disappeared down the tunnel for five minutes, presumably to have a quick toilet break. Roberto Martinez will be glad to only be a goal down as he now has a chance to make some changes to get back into this game.
45' HALF TIME
The referee blows for half time with Sunderland in a comfortable one goal lead.
42' MIRALLAS RETURNS
Everton players and staff are still looking confused, but Kevin Mirallas has finally returned to the pitch after what we can only presume was a trip to the toilet - unless he decided to get a quick pie before the half time queue.
41' WELL WIDE
With Everton down to nine men, Sunderland sense that this is their chance. Steven Fletcher is sent through on goal, but sends a woeful shot off target.
38' MIRALLAS MIA
Kevin Mirallas has just walked off the pitch and Everton are currently down to nine men.
36' EVERTON PUSH
The home side are trying to get themselves back into this, but Sunderland have pulled all their men back and are set up to defend this lead. Everton need a bit of magic from somewhere.
32' MARTINEZ NOT IMPRESSED
The Everton manager has three of his substitutes warming up as he is clearly not happy with the performance of his players. Does Roberto Martinez have a trick up his sleeve to get his team out of this fix?
29' GREAT RUN
Seamus Coleman is going to be vital for Everton now and he makes a brilliant run down the right. However, the ball goes loose and Phil Bardsley is able to smash it clear.
25' GOOAALL!!
The first action for Joel is to pick the ball out of the back of the net as Sung-Yueng Ki dispatches the penalty past the substitute keeper.
24' EVERTON SUBSTITUTION
Keeper Joel replaces Leon Osman.
23' RED CARD
Out of nowhere Sung-Yueng Ki is through on goal and Tim Howard fouls the midfielder. The keeper knows the consequences of taking out a forward and is sent from the field.
19' POOR PASS
Everton demonstrate their best and worst. Seamus Coleman shows great composure to keep hold of the ball. The full back finds Phil Jagielka, who ruins it all by slicing a long pass into the crowd.
15' STRAIGHT AT THE KEEPER
A glimpse of hope for Sunderland as Jack Colback breaks forward. The midfielder has a lot of time to pick his spot, but his shot is straight at Tim Howard.
14' QUESTION BEING ASKED
Everton continue to make the running. Bryan Oviedo and Seamus Coleman are swinging in plenty of good balls, which Sunderland are doing well to defend against. Oviedo is just having a word with Romelu Lukaku, as the striker has been static this afternoon.
11' GOOD CLEARANCE
Sunderland are sitting very deep and Everton are being given plenty of room to play in. However, this time Mobido Diakite gets back well to clear and shows that he isn't just there to kick Everton players up in the air.
8' GREAT STRIKE
Bryan Oviedo is playing with plenty of confidence and he wastes no time in smashing a shot at goal from distance. Vito Mannone is forced to watch it all the way as it whistles past the post.
6' GOOD CLOSING
Fabio Borini looks to have found some space, but Seamus Coleman is quick to close the forward down and force the ball back to Lee Cattermole. Leon Osman is then on the toes of the defensive midfielder.
2' QUICK KEEPING
Steven Pienaar gives the ball away in attack and Sunderland launch the the ball forward. Phil Jagielka tries to head back to his keeper, but he does not get enough on it and Tim Howard has to race out of his goal to gather.
1' KICK OFF
We are underway at Goodison Park.
0' SUNDERLAND TEAM NEWS
There are four changes for Sunderland following the bore draw with Norwich. Gus Poyet makes big changes in defence as John O'Shea is dropped and Wes Brown is suspended, so in step Modibo Diakite and Valentin Roberge. Steven Fletcher replaces Jozy Altidore, whilst Jack Colback comes in for Emanuele Giaccherini.
0' EVERTON TEAM NEWS
Leighton Baines does not make the match day squad as Roberto Martinez makes one change to his side. Ross Barkley, the match winner against Swansea, makes way for Leon Osman.
0' REF WATCH
Gus Poyet has had a number of disciplinary problems at the club since he took over and Wes Brown became the fourth player to be sent off under the manager's twelve game reign. Poyet will also be aware that today's referee Lee Probert sent John O'Shea from the field in Sunderland's loss to Crystal Palace earlier in the season.
0' AN UNHAPPY CHRISTMAS
Sunderland once again find themselves bottom of the Premier League and it is the worst time for it. No presents will cheer Sunderland and the turkey will be twice as dry as players and fans are constantly reminded that only one team (West Brom) have survived after being bottom of the Premier League on Christmas day.
0' EVERTON MUST BE WARY
Roberto Martinez must be pinching himself at how well things are going at Everton, but he will be only too aware of the potential for an upset here. The Toffees have struggled to break down some of the weaker teams in the division this season, so an early goal will be important for the home team.
0' NO GOODWILL AT GOODISON
It was Everton's miserable performance at the end of last season that handed Sunderland three vital points in their successful battle against relegation. However, there will be no time for goodwill as the Black Cats desperately search for points to get them out of another relegation battle. The Toffees have ideas at the other end of the table – and with a win they could go top, albeit for the briefest of period.
