Everton at Stoke City: lineups, TV schedule, live stream and how to watch online

Can the Blues get a win away at the desperate Potters?

Stoke City are in trouble. With eight matches to play, they are one point from safety in a cluster at the bottom of the Premier League table. The two teams right above them in the standings, Southampton and Crystal Palace, have very winnable matches this weekend against Swansea City and Huddersfield Town, respectively. Everton give the Potters a tough matchup, but given the Blues struggles on the road, Stoke will be hoping to maximize points at the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke have not won a game since January 20. Everton took all three points from Brighton & Hove Albion at Goodison Park last week, but they have just one win in the league away from home the entire season. That lone victory came way back in December against Newcastle United.

These two sides first met this year back on Opening Day, August 12. Ah, there was hope back then. Everton was going to do big things! They beat Stoke 1-0 that day on the strength of Wayne Rooney’s headed goal. Sure, it wasn’t an amazing performance, but it counted all the same. Since then, both clubs have cratered and fired their managers. Everton seem almost safe from the drop at this point, but a loss for Stoke could be killer.
