Everton Move Into Fourth Position

Everton jumped to fourth position, above Arsenal, on Saturday thanks to a 75th minute own goal by Wes Brown, that helped the Toffees beat Sunderland 1-0 during the Barclays Premier League match played at the Stadium of Light.

Everton, still without former South African captain, Steven Pienaar, managed to maintain their impressive form with a win over Sunderland that moved them up the table

The Toffees, who have been enjoying a good run, started brightly against a Sunderland side at the bottom of the league ,who had been handed a heavy 4-1 loss to Tottenham earlier in the week.

Everton duo of Romelu Lukaku and Robert Naismith, who have been on a great goal scoring run, both wasted good chances early in the first half of the match. 

Ki Sung-Yeung looked the likely candidate to get a goal for a Sunderland side desperate for a win in a fight to survive relegation, but his shots on goal were easily dealt with by Everton goalkeeper, Tim Howard.

The Black Cats came close to finding the equaliser as Borini fired in a swirling  strike from distance which drop agonisingly wide of the far post with Howard looking in a fluster in his attempt to keep the ball out.

Everton showed signs of maturity towards the end of the match keeping the ball impressively to frustrate the relegation-haunted hosts, who will stay six points adrift with a defeat to the Toffees.
