Sunderland can guarantee their Premier League survival if they beat Everton on Wednesday night, live on Sky Sports 1. San Francisco 49ers Jullian Taylor Jersey . The Black Cats twice came from behind to secure a stunning 3-2 win over Chelsea at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, while relegation rivals Newcastle and Norwich picked up just a point between them.Victory in front of the Sky cameras would see Sunderland safe - and relegate fierce rivals Newcastle, alongside Norwich - but a loss against the 12th-placed Toffees would send the scrap for survival to the final day. Roberto Martinezs men are winding down what has been widely regarded as a disappointing season and they never looked like crashing Leicesters title-winning party on Saturday, conceding an early goal and slipping to a 3-1 defeat.However, Allardyce says he will be wary of Everton and thinks criticism of their recent displays will spur them on. Sam Allardyce looks ahead to Wednesdays match against Everton I hope there is not a feeling out there that this game is a foregone conclusion, said the Sunderland boss in the pre-match press conference. It will be anything but.Everton have been criticised for their performance against Leicester and I think that will get a reaction from their players and Roberto here on Wednesday.I think we will see Everton trying their best to spoil our evening. We must be in top form and be as committed as we were on Saturday, if we are to get the result we are looking for. Team newsSunderland defender Lamine Kone is fit after being replaced during the second half of Saturdays 3-2 victory over Chelsea with a thigh problem. Full-back Billy Jones, who did not make the 18 at the weekend because of a hip injury, remains a doubt, but Allardyce otherwise has a full squad from which to select.Everton welcome back Ramiro Funes Mori from suspension and could also have Gareth Barry available. Roberto Martinez wants Everton to respond to their defeat at Leicester by beating Sunderland Funes Mori has served a three-match ban following his red card in the Merseyside derby while Barry has been sidelined by a groin injury.But the Toffees remain short in defence with Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman (both hamstring) and Tony Hibbert (ankle) out along with Gerard Deulofeu (knee).Opta Stats Romelu Lukaku has not scored in his last seven top-flight appearances Sunderland have won just one of their last 10 Barclays Premier League home matches against Everton (W1 D4 L5).The Black Cats have netted just six goals in that run of 10 matches.Jermain Defoe netted just three goals in 17 Premier League games against Everton before joining Sunderland but has scored in both games for the Black Cats against the Toffees. Hear more from Allardyce and Martinez on Sunderlands crucial Premier League match with Everton Everton netted six goals from eight shots on target in the reverse fixture earlier this season at Goodison Park, while Sunderland scored twice from nine efforts on target.Arouna Kone has netted three goals in two top-flight meetings with Sunderland (all via a hat-trick in the 6-2 win in November), against no side has he scored more Premier League goals (also three v West Brom). Jermain Defoe scored the winner in the 3-2 victory over Chelsea Sunderland have lost just one of their last nine Premier League games, winning two and drawing six.The Toffees have registered just one win in their last nine top-flight games, drawing three and losing five.With 143 goals in total in the Premier League, Defoe is just one away from joining Robin van Persie (144) as the joint-10th highest scorer in the competition.Romelu Lukaku is without a goal in his last seven top-flight appearances, his longest goal drought in the Premier League since January 2015 (eight).Paul Mersons prediction Paul Merson predicts a win for Sunderland and Sam Allardyce Everton have shot a bolt. I watched them against Leicester and they were atrocious. They still have something to play for - they are playing for their managers job!Victory for Sunderland, meanwhile, condemns Norwich and Newcastle to relegation and the way they are playing at the minute I cant see past them. The job will be done and Big Sam keeps a club up once again... if anyone else had been appointed, Sunderland simply wouldnt have survived.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 12/1)BettingSunderland go into Wednesdays game as 8/11 favourites to get the all-important win, with Everton priced up at 18/5 and the draw at 14/5. The Black Cats were pushed out from 5/6 to 11/2 to face relegation following their 3-2 victory over Chelsea, with Newcastle and Norwich now short odds to go down. Jermain Defoe, who has three goals in his last five including the weekend winner, is the 3/1 favourite to score the games first goal, which Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp is backing in a 2-1 win at 18/1.

That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. http:///...dante-pettis-jersey/ . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field.Michael van Gerwen is the new leader of the Premier League and three players are facing a shoot-out for the last remaining play-off place. The world No 1 replaced Phil Taylor at the top of the table after an impressive 7-1 victory over James Wade on night 13 in Birmingham, which followed an opening defeat for The Power by Peter Wright.Van Gerwen assured his spot at the season-ending play-offs and Gary Anderson has virtually qualified in third place, but Adrian Lewis, James Wade and Wright are all scrapping for the final spot at The O2.   MVG is MVP Michael van Gerwen only missed two darts at a double The Dutchman again underlined his status as the sports finest player after his ruthless win over Wade.He succeeded with seven out of nine darts at a double, while Wade was only afforded two darts at a finish, and wore a look of disbelief. MVG is back on top of the Premier League Speaking afterwards, Van Gerwen could not contain his delight about knocking Taylor off the summit, and the pair will renew their rivalry in Rotterdam on the closing night of the regular campaign.Nearly all Wright  Peter Wright can still snatch fourth place in the table Snakebite admitted beforehand that he needed maximum points from his two matches to revive his play-off hopes and so nearly achieved this target.He only missed one double in a season-best 7-4 win over Taylor and then appeared to have Anderson on the rack when he had three darts at a double to move 6-5 up. Wright and Gary Anderson shared the points Wright would miss all three, allowing Anderson to pinch the leg, but the man with the multi-coloured mohican hit back to claim a 6-6 draw and could still squeeze into the last four. Play-off permutations James Wade can still qualify for the play-offs despite loss to Van Gerwen With just two matches remaining, Lewis, Wade and Wright will be keeping an eye on each others results as they try to snatch a place at The O2.Lewis needs only a point, but is facing daunting fixtures against his old mentor Taylor and defending champion Anderson. Remaining PL fixtures Adrian Lewis Night 14: Phil Taylor Night 15: Gary Anderson James Wade Night 14: Peter Wright Night 15 Robert Thornton Peter Wright Night 14: James Wade Night 15: R van Barneveld Wright and Wade meet next week and a win for either man could keep alive their play-off hopes ahead of the closing night of the regular campaign. San Francisco 49ers D. J. Reed Jersey. Barney a beaten man Raymond van Barneveld was forced to give up on his bid to reach The O2 There will be no late charge from Raymond van Barneveld, who cannot qualify for the top four after a frustrating 7-5 defeat to Anderson. Barney fired in a superb 132 checkout while opening a 5-4 lead, but five missed darts at a double opened the door for Anderson. Van Barneveld hits a bullseye check out against Anderson Yet again, the Dutchman had allowed a result to slip away, and last years semi-finalist will look back on this campaign with regret.  Ando on the up Anderson is hoping to collect back-to-back titles Andersons title defence is set to continue into the play-off night after three points from his two matches all but assured his attendance in London.The reigning world champion has not produced a consistent high standard during the season which started late due to his illness. Anderson took good for Van Barneveld But he also finished third last year and comes alive on the big stage, beating Van Gerwen in last years final to land the trophy.
