The game between Everton and Sunderland in the Premier League on Wednesday, 27th January 2010 at 20:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Everton prepare to entertain Sunderland at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Toffees are clearly on top, having won 54 and lost only 19 of the 85 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Goodison Park was just last season, in December 2008, with Everton running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Premier League match.
