Stoke City stand at the middle of the table with only one point more than Everton. Relegation zone is far, while on the other side they don’t have big chances to reach the place which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League. Home side are without win in their last three Premier League matches. True, they played against very stronger opponents such as Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester United. Stoke know how to play against stronger teams, but only when they are playing upfront their supporters. They have already beat at home Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, and took one point from Arsenal and Leicester. Their recent form is not at the high level, so it’s time to wake up and make positive result against Everton. New signing, Giannelli Imbula, who moved from Porto FC, could make his debut on this game.

Everton stand in the middle of the table, but the place which leads in some of European competitions seems far. They have very good squad and play very good, attacking, football, but their main weakness is their defence. They scored a lot of goals this season, but on the other side their defence is one of the worst in league. Everton have improved their performance and managed to win two games in which they didn’t concede a single goal. First, they eliminated Carlisle in the 1/16-finals of FA Cup, while in the previous round Everton beat Newcastle 3-0. In the last game their one of the best players this season, Lukaku, picked up an injury, so they will decide before the game start is he ready to play. Good news for home team is that Kevin Mirallas has recoved from a knee problem and could be in the first eleven.

Stoke City vs Everton injuries and suspensions

Home side will be without Ryan Shawcross, Geoff Cameron and Marc Wilson due to injury, while Philipp Wollscheid is doubtful. Visitors still miss their first goalkeeper Tim Howard, John Stones and Muhamed Besic, while their top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who picked up an injury in the last match against Newcastle, is doubtful for this game.

Stoke City vs Everton possible lineups

Stoke City: Butland, Bardsley, Johnson, Muniesa, Pieters, Imbula, Whelan, Shaqiri, Afellay, Arnautovic, Bojan.
Everton: Robles, Coleman, Jagielka, Mori, Baines, Cleverley, McCarthy, Barry, Lennon, Lukaku, Barkley.

Stoke City vs Everton Prediction

Both teams are looking for good result. Maybe visitors are in the better form in this moment, but Stoke are playing very good at home. I expect at least one goal in both nets.
