Everton Under-23s’ Premier League Cup last 16 clash with Sunderland will take place at Southport FC’s Merseyrail Community Stadium on Saturday 16 March, with kick-off at 2pm.
The Premier League 2 leaders progressed to the knockout stages of the competition in some style – topping a group which contained Blackburn Rovers, Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers, and going unbeaten throughout their six matches.
The young Blues will face a Sunderland outfit who were runners-up behind Stoke City in their group. The Black Cats comfortably finished ahead of third-placed Peterborough and Charlton Athletic, who propped up the table.
