Three key battles: Stoke vs. Everton

Premier League fans are being treated to an absolute feast of football this week, with two rounds of action due before Monday comes around.

Last night saw Liverpool host Chelsea in a firey title clash and although Manchester City and Manchester United may grab the headlines tonight, we at FootballFanCast have a feeling Stoke vs. Everton will provide a little more bang for our buck.

After all, there’s so little to choose between these sides ahead of kick-off. Before Tuesday night’s run of fixtures, they were separated by just two places in the Premier League table, and perhaps most tellingly of all, the last six meetings between the Potters and the Toffees have been split exactly down the middle with three wins apiece.

With that in mind, tonight’s encounter under the Bet365 Stadium floodlights looks set to come down to which side dominates the key individual battles. We take a look at THREE that could decide the outcome.
