Paul Lambert appeared an odd choice to replace Mark Hughes when he arrived at Stoke in January, because he hadn’t much recent Premier League experience. What he did have, an impressive spell with Norwich which was preceded by two promotions and a sour ending at Aston Villa, could hardly have filled Stoke fans with much hope of what was to come. So far, he has been far from a disaster, making the Potters tough to beat and clearly getting the best out of star man Xherdan Shaqiri, but all in all it has gone as expected. Stoke are without the right blend of inspiration and quality and find themselves sleepwalking towards Championship football for the first time in a decade.

All is not lost, though; Stoke sit in 19th in the Premier League table, but crucially one point from safety. With the FA Cup meaning neither Southampton nor West Ham are in action this weekend, the Potters could climb out of the bottom three with a win. Everton are the visitors, and Sam Allardyce’s side are there for the taking, enduring a tough time on the road themselves. It will be tight and tense, but Stoke must take their chances soon with time running out fast. In truth, we can see this one going either way.

Form

After an initial impact, winning four points from his first two games, Lambert has struggled to follow that up. Stoke have not won since his opening match against Huddersfield, but they have drawn four of his eight in charge, proving he has added solidity to a side that has conceded 56 goals this season.

WILLIAM HILL HAVE GOT YOU COVERED

Everton got a much-needed win over Brighton at Goodison Park weekend, but most of their troubles have come away from home. They have lost their last six on the road in all competitions.

Team News

Stoke have no fresh injury worries but Gylfi Sigurdsson has joined James McCarthy and Eliaqium Mangala on the long-term absentee list for the Toffees.
