GALLERY: Sunderland in training ahead of Everton match

We compile the best photos from Sunderland's training session before their game against Everton tomorrow.

Sunderland have been pictured in training ahead of their match against Everton this weekend.

The Black Cats go into the game against the Toffees knowing that they will need to put in a top quality performance to get the three points out of the game.

They will be more confident of doing that then at any point previously this season, though, after picking up a win against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Sunderland have been stuck in the relegation zone, but their win at Selhurst Park has pushed them up the table and away from danger.

They will be aiming to continue to keep putting space between them and the bottom three by getting a win in front of their own fans tomorrow.

Sunderland have won just once at home this season and they will be determined to turn their poor form at the Stadium of Light around.

To do so against Everton will be a tough ask as their form has been good in recent weeks, but the squad trained in good spirits today.

The side seemed to be in a jovial mood and the best photos from that session can be seen below.
