(Video) Sunderland 1-0 Everton: Premier League highlights

Black Cats claim vital victory at Stadium of Light.

Sunderland eased their relegation woes with a second consecutive home win, after Stephane Sessegnon scored the only goal in a narrow win over Champions League-chasing Everton.

The Benin striker finished from the edge of the box after an uncharacteristic mistake from Toffees full-back Leighton Baines.

The victory took Sunderland six points clear of 18th place Wigan, while Everton face an uphill battle to finish in the top four, after defeat left them stranded on 56 points in fifth.
