Paul Merson labels Everton 'atrocious'.
Paul Merson has told SkySports he thought Everton's performance against newly crowned champions Leicester City at the weekend was 'atrocious'.
Everton lost the game 3-1 and never looked in the contest after conceding after just five minutes to a Jamie Vardy strike.
Everton are 12th in the Premier League, but Merson believes they have plenty to play for - if the players want Roberto Martinez to stay on as manager.
He believes Sunderland will win the game 3-1, adding: "Everton have shot a bolt. I watched them against Leicester and they were atrocious. They still have something to play for - they are playing for their manager's job.
"Victory for Sunderland, meanwhile, condemns Norwich and Newcastle to relegation and the way they are playing at the minute I can't see past them."
Everton failed in their role as party pooper at the weekend at the King Power Stadium and find themselves in similar circumstances against Sunderland, needing a better result.
Their final game of the season is a home game against Norwich City, and that one in front of a team which may already be relegated, in front of their own fans, is one Martinez dare not lose, but a poor result on Wednesday and it could be too late either way.
