The Leicester City goalkeeper backs Sunderland to win against Everton in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Leicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer predicted on MOTD2 Extra on BBC Two on Sunday afternoon (broadcast from 12:15pm, May 8) that Sunderland will win against Everton this week.

Sunderland will take on Everton at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The Black Cats are fighting for survival in the English top flight, but they will make sure that they will remain in the Premier League if they pick up all three points against the Toffees.

Sam Allardyce’s side will head into the match against the Merseyside outfit on the back of a 3-2 victory over Chelsea at the Stadium of Light.

Everton have been in disappointing form all season and lost 3-1 to champions Leicester away from home at the King Power Stadium in the league at the weekend.

Former Australia international goalkeeper Schwarzer believes that Sunderland will pick up all three points against Roberto Martinez’s side at the Stadium of Light and retain their Premier League status for next season.

“The way that Everton played against Leicester yesterday, I just can’t see a result other than Sunderland winning,” said the former Chelsea goalkeeper on MOTD2 Extra on BBC Two on Sunday afternoon (broadcast from 12:15pm, May 8).

Sunderland should head into the match against Everton with confidence, but they cannot get complacent and must stayed focused throughout the 90 minutes.
