Everton travel to Stoke-on-Trent on a rainy Tuesday night partly cloudy Saturday afternoon to play hosts Stoke City in the fourth friendly of the pre-season. Without a full complement of players as yet, the Blues have managed two close wins and a stalemate against primarily lower league opposition.

Stoke meanwhile under Alex Neil are closing out their pre-season before they play their first game of the new Championship season against Rotherham. After a 16th place finish in the second tier last season, the Potters will be looking for a better campaign this time around.

Information from



Danjuma makes his first Everton start, Calvert-Lewin not on the bench despite returning to training this week. Gray not in the squad at all. That aside, this is as close to the full strength side as you will get.

Last Meeting

It was only March 2018 when an Everton led by Sam Allardyce (!) came away 2-1 winners from the bet365 Stadium after a Cenk Tosun brace (!!) while the snow came flying down on a somewhat sunny afternoon (!!!).
