A slice of luck for Andrew Johnson was enough to hand Everton the points in a 1-0 win at Sunderland and keep alive their hopes of edging Liverpool out of the Champions League places.

Johnson scored the only goal of the game when Mikel Arteta´s left-wing cross ricocheted off his arm in the 55th minute, leaving a committed but limited Sunderland side still nursing relegation worries.

Johnson had earlier missed a gilt-edged opportunity to open the scoring, heading over from point-blank range when Tim Cahill´s effort was cleared off the line by Anthony Stokes.
