EVERTON LEAPFROGGED ARSENAL into fourth place in the Premier League with a 1-0 win at bottom of the table Sunderland as English football marked the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

Fresh from their 3-0 victory over the Gunners last weekend, Roberto Martinez’s side had to wait until the 75th minute to score at the Stadium of Light when former Manchester United defender Wes Brown put Gerard Deulofeu’s cross into his own net.

Victory moved Everton in the Champions League places, two points ahead of Arsenal, who were in FA Cup semi-final action against Wigan at Wembley, with both clubs having five league games remaining this season.
