Sam Allardyce has a message for Sunderland fans ahead of Everton clash

Sunderland will take on Everton in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that the fans should come to the Stadium of Light on Wednesday evening with limited expectations.

The Black Cats will take on Everton at home in the Premier League knowing that a win will keep them safe.

Given the Toffees’ disappointing performances and results in recent weeks, many Sunderland fans will expect a win for their team.

Even if Sunderland lose on Wednesday evening, they will retain their Premier League status for next season if they pick up all three points against Watford away from home at Vicarage Road next weekend.

Allardyce has made it clear that Sunderland cannot get complacent and has warned the fans against thinking that the job is done.

Allardyce is being pragmatic, and that is how it should be given that the Black Cats could lose their final two league matches and go down to the Championship.

The positive for Sunderland is that they have their destiny in their own hands.
