Premier League outings and sit in a healthy ninth in the table.

Stoke having success is still based on the foundation of their home form, which has been so crucial for them in seasons gone by. They remain unbeaten in their 7 games at the Britannia this season, including notable draws against Manchester City and Arsenal, so will be relishing this fixture.

Everton definitely did a smash and grab on Tottenham last weekend as they scored two injury time goals to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, as they won 2-1. It was their first win in four but to be sitting as pretty as fourth is very bizarre for the Toffees with their success usually arriving in the latter half of the season only.

Pulis’s men welcome back Charlie Adam after suspension but Ryan Shotton replaces him as the banned player following his red card at Aston Villa. Peter Crouch will be looking to earn his place back from Kenwyne Jones and Michael Owen is available for selection after numerous injuries.

The Toffees should be able to include Kevin Mirallas as David Moyes insisted his half time withdrawal last weekend was precautionary. They will still be without Captain Phil Neville (knee) and Tony Hibbert remains sidelined for a few more weeks.

Everton’s Marouane Fellaini has been devastating in the air this season but he has been equally effective on the floor too. The Belgian has a 71% accuracy rate with his passing in the final third this season.

Prediction: Stoke 1-0 Everton
