The two sides enter Wednesday’s match in good form. Everton have four wins in five games and Stoke are a Wayne Rooney wonder strike away from a three-match win streak.
Saido Berahino could make his debut for the Potters after getting his long-awaited move away from West Bromwich Albion a few days ago. He adds an intriguing element to the Stoke attack that could prove difficult for Everton to handle.
While Stoke did lose 2-0 to Wolves in an FA Cup clash at the bet365 in January, they are unbeaten at home in the league since November. Early on in the season, Everton struggled on the road, but have take seven points in their most recent three matches away from Goodison Park.
