Magic Numbers: Sunderland

Everton host Martin O'Neill's Sunderland on Saturday, with the Blues eyeing a return to winning ways.

Here we preview the game at Goodison with the aid of stats, facts and numbers…

1 League defeats for Everton this season. If the Blues avoid defeat on Saturday it will represent the fewest number of losses in the opening 11 games since 1978/79, when Everton went 19 games undefeated from the start of a campaign.     

4 Draws in the Toffees’ last four league games. The Blues have previously drawn five successive games on only three occasions - in 1976/77, 1974/75 and 1921/22.

7 Goals scored by Everton in our 7-1 defeat of the Wearsiders in November 2007, the biggest victory of the David Moyes era.  

12 Matches played by Tim Howard, Phil Neville and Leon Osman for Everton against Sunderland without suffering defeat.

16 Years since Sunderland last won at Goodison Park in the league - a 3-1 victory in November 1996.

17 Matches in all competitions that David Moyes has taken charge of Everton against Sunderland. The Blues boss is yet to suffer a defeat against the Black Cats, having won 12 and drawn five of those meetings. No previous Toffees boss has a better record against a single club, the next best being the eight games undefeated for Gordon Lee and Colin Harvey against Derby County and Middlesbrough respectively.

45 Years since an Everton hat-trick in a league game against Sunderland. The treble in question was netted by Johnny Morrissey at Goodison Park in May 1967.

200 According to Opta, the number of attempts on goal by Everton in league matches this season – the highest of any side in the so-called ‘big five’ top-flight leagues of England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France.

298 Goals scored by Everton against Sunderland in all competitions. The Blues have only been more prolific against Aston Villa, notching 329 times against the Midlanders.

399 Premier League games in which David Moyes has taken charge of Everton. The Scot's win rate during that time stands at an impressive 40 per cent.
