We’ll start with Everton’s excellent performance Vs Sunderland!
Everton 2 – 1 Sunderland
Two late goals in as many minutes ensured Everton maintained their unbeaten home form this season and held a Champions League spot for another week.
Marouane Fellaini wins the Man of the Match award for a second successive week after scoring a brace at Craven Cottage last week and inspiring a late comeback at Goodison on Saturday.
The Belgian midfielder-cum-forward continued his fine form against Sunderland by scoring the equaliser and then providing the assist for Nikica Jelavic two minutes later.
Fellaini had a 100% shot conversion as his only shot on target found the net, and managed to win a total of three corners for his side, the most won by any player on the pitch.
He has been involved in 43% of Everton’s goals this season, contributing six goals and three assists from a team total of 21 goals this term.
The Toffee’s would not be enjoying such dizzy height if it wasn’t for the form of their talisman. However, Fellaini was also the biggest culprit on the pitch for losses of possession, giving the ball away a total of 21 times.
