[AMERICANS ABROAD]Everton's chances of finishing in the top four of the English Premier League are fading, but Tim Howard's Cottagers could have a big impact on the title race when they host Manchester City on Saturday.

Everton, which has dropped four points behind fourth-place Arsenal, could do city rival Liverpool a huge favor if it gets a result against Manchester City, which is all assured of winning the English Premier League if it wins its last three matches, the toughest of which is at Goodison Park. Liverpool needs to win its last two games and hope City drops points in one of its three matches.

Everton's only chance of overtaking Arsenal is if it wins its last two games and Arsenal doesn't win either of its final two matches and falls behind Everton on goal difference.

THURSDAY NIGHT.Edgar Castillostarted and Joe Coronaand Herculez Gomezcame off the bench in the second half for Tijuana in a 0-0 tie with Toluca at the Estadio Caliente.

Jozy Altidore's Sunderland is out of the drop zone but for how long remains to be seen as the Black Cats face a tough test at Manchester United under interim boss Ryan Giggs.
