Arsene Wenger’s men in cup action this weekend, the Toffee’s will have the chance to climb into the top four.

The Merseysiders are expected to have Leon Osman available following an eye injury. The 32 year old suffered a gash to his eye in the win over Arsenal and required stitches for the wound.

However the midfielder is recovering well and manager Roberto Martinez is confident the player will be available for the trip to the North East.

Obviously the first 24 hours were important, he is recovering really well,” he told Everton’s official website.

“We’ll assess him and take it from there, but it is too early to say how quickly he will join the group.

“Knowing Leon, he will be ready and I will be very surprised if he doesn’t make the squad for Saturday.”

Sunderland meanwhile will head into the game on the back of four straight defeats, a run of results that has left the club rooted at the bottom of the table.

The spirited performance from Anfield, when they lost 2-1 to Liverpool, has long been for-gotten as defeats to West Ham United and a 5-1 loss to Spurs have left the club facing a huge battle to stay up.

“I think we need a miracle. We need something unique, a shock, because if not I cannot see it coming,” Poyet said in the aftermath of the defeat to Spurs.

Sunderland have won since they beat Newcastle 3-0 in February, a run of seven games with-out a win while Everton are currently on a run of five straight wins.

The Toffees have scored three goals in each of their last four games however they lost 1-0 when they faced Poyet’s men back in December.
