Moyes seeks shades of Suker in Nik
Everton boss David Moyes admits Nikica Jelavic reminds him of Croatia's all-time record goal scorer Davor Suker.
Jelavic has been nothing short of a revelation since he swapped Rangers for Everton in a #5.5million February transfer.
The Croatian has scored five goals for the Toffees, the latest two coming in yesterday's 2-2 draw against Norwich at Carrow Road.
The 26-year-old opened the scoring with the cleverest of deft flicks in the first half and showed predatory instinct by turning home Steven Pienaar's cross to score the Toffees' second after the break.
Everton have longed for a regular goalscorer ever since Louis Saha went off the boil after a succession of injuries, and Moyes is so delighted with his new hitman that he admits he sees shades of France '98 top scorer Suker in the former Rangers striker.
"He does (remind me of Suker)," Moyes said.
"He sees getting goals as part of his job, his role in the team, but he has helped link us up as well.
"He is a presence as a centre forward so he has been good for us.
"He wants to get a goal and he showed that against Norwich."
Marouane Fellaini started on the bench yesterday but is likely to be recalled alongside Darron Gibson in midfield against Sunderland on Monday.
Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and Royston Drenthe, who has been on compassionate leave since March 21, missed out on Saturday's draw at Norwich but could be available for Monday's clash.
Seamus Coleman made his return from a three-week thigh injury lay-off as a substitute on Saturday and may also feature against Martin O'Neill's side.
Martin O'Neill leads his Sunderland side back to Goodison Park for the second time in a month on Easter Monday admitting their FA Cup heartache still weighs on his mind.
The Black Cats claimed a 1-1 draw on Merseyside before losing the replay at the Stadium of Light two weeks ago and missing out on a place in the last four.
But O'Neill's men will approach the game in confident mood after taking another point off a side chasing a Champions League place in a goalless draw against Tottenham.
O'Neill said: "We will travel back to Goodison Park hoping to play as strongly as we did there a few weeks ago, but possibly with a tinge of regret.
"We will have to play very strongly to get something from the game. We played very well there in the FA Cup although we were disappointed to lose at home in the replay."
O'Neill will be forced to make changes after the tough draw with Harry Redknapp's men, with striker Nicklas Bendtner the manager's main concern.
Bendtner is nursing a sore back while captain Lee Cattermole and defender Phil Bardsley were forced to limp off late on and will both face late tests.
O'Neill said: "We will have to see how Bardsley and Cattermole are. Bendtner is feeling sore too. We don't have much time to turn it around but we'll see.
"Two games in three days places demands on the players, so fingers crossed that we come out of it in reasonable health."
