Danny Rose Tottenham warmup

Danny Rose cheered on Sunderland in their 3-0 win over Everton.

Sunderland beat Everton 3-0 on Wednesday evening to guarantee their Premier League status - and they had a familiar face in the stands in Danny Rose.

Patrick van Aanholt's free kick and two goals from defender Lamine Kone handed Sunderland all three points, saving them from relegation and condemning Norwich City and fierce rivals Newcastle United to the Championship.

Sam Allardyce has pulled off the great escape, and Sunderland fans can relax when the Black Cats take on Watford, having cheered on their side against Everton.

They were joined in the stands by a familiar face, as Tottenham left back Danny Rose returned to the Stadium of Light to lend his support to his former club.

Rose, 25, spent the 2012-13 season on loan at the Stadium of Light, making 29 appearances and scoring one goal before returning to White Hart Lane, where he has become Tottenham's first choice left back and an England international.

Rose's Spurs side take on Sunderland's biggest rivals Newcastle at St. James' Park this weekend, and ahead of that game he travelled to Wearside to support the Black Cats, and even pose with his former Spurs team-mate Younes Kaboul, in images posted by Sunderland's official Twitter account.

Do you think Sunderland will beat Watford on the final day?
