Team news for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash between Sunderland and Everton.

Osman doubtful for Everton

Midfielder Leon Osman is Everton's only doubt ahead of Saturday's trip to Sunderland.

The 32-year-old had to have five stitches in an eye wound early in last weekend's victory over Arsenal and as of Thursday his left eye had not fully reopened.

Defender Phil Jagielka (hamstring) could be fit to return for next weekend's visit of Manchester United.

Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher is unlikely to play again this season because of his ankle injury.

The 27-year-old Scotland international, who has missed the last four games, will sit out against Everton on Saturday and is likely to play no further part in the club's fight for Barclays Premier League survival.

Manager Gus Poyet is otherwise remaining coy over a series of minor knocks, but goalkeeper Keiren Westwood is still sidelined by a shoulder problem.
