Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has urged his team-mates to keep a close eye on Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini on Saturday.
Mignolet admits that the Black Cats will have a job on their hands trying to contain his international team-mate who is in the form of his life with five goals in his last nine games for the Merseyside club.
The Belgian keeper admits he is not surprised by the influence the midfielder has had this season to help Everton climb into fourth position in the table.
The game at Goodison will be a tough fixture for Martin O'Neill's side who are in desperate need of a result as they currently sit just four points above the relegation zone.
"His style of play is perfectly suited for the English game," he said.
"He has always done really well for us in the Belgian team - he is one of the best players we have - but he is also showing now how good he is for Everton now.
"He is massive for us and he is massive for Everton too now - we just have to hope he's a little less good than normal when he comes to play us!"
