Ronald Koeman had to take his training plans indoors on Thursday

Ronald Koeman sent on Enner Valencia in an attempt to give the Sunderland centre-halves more to worry about, but when he attempted to meet a Coleman cross he only succeeded in putting off the better placed Barkley.

Sunderland are three points off safety at the moment and Oviedo is confident that David Moyes' side still have hope of surviving in the Premier League if they improve in the coming games. I didn't want us to concede again in the second half. "Sunderland have been in that position quite regularly and we have the players to deal with the situation". They've lost all five games against such opposition, going behind before the half in the two most recent of those and failing to get on the scoresheet on three of the five occasions.

"We need to start well in games, because it's the Premier League". I was glad we only went in 1-0 down at half-time because the boy [Thomas Davies] hits the post.

"I wanted to keep them quiet and keep the game at a low level". "In the last few games he's played in different positions, I think it's best for the team and himself, he's working hard".

Edinburgh ranked 'second most congested city in the UK'
The figure is calculated by measuring extra travel time during peak hours against situations in which there is no congestion. Average speeds drop to 4mph in the city centre at peak times, according to the report by traffic data specialists INRIX.

Joel Robles should continue in goal for the Merseyside club and he has shown some strong performances recently to overtake Maarten Stekelenburg as the number one option.

Over the past week, Everton have spent time away in Dubai ahead of this weekend's clash with Sunderland, and Koeman is confident the decision to leave the United Kingdom will prove beneficial.

Substitute Enner Valencia was then denied when one-on-one with Pickford as Everton looked to further crush Sunderland's morale, but it mattered little for the hosts, who extended their unbeaten run to nine league games.

But although on paper, this will be one of their more easier assignments, a relegation threatened team is never easy to face, especially at this stage of the season.
