Disappointed with the stalemate result against Manchester United will bring motivation for Stoke City as they try to look forward for a win. Failure to capitalize in the second half have only led them to steal a single point from their contenders. Their overall performance this season is so far magnificent.
A four point deficit to bump-off West Bromwich on the eight spot will somehow be challenging for Mark Hughes side. An eye on the net plus a tactical defense will help them snatch a win here.
Romelu Lukaku’s impressive stunt continues with his unstoppable point contribution to Everton.
The Toffees are currently undefeated on their past five matches in Premier League – three of which are clean sheet matches including a successful 4-0 run against Manchester City.
The only question now is who will take charge on the position of Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo after their immediate transfer to fellow English club, Sunderland? Everton surely holds a great weight in this rally, added the fact that they are away from home.
Home turf advantage is what Stoke City has over their visitors who had a poor record away from their stadium.
Their past meet-up has been an intense one, so expect the same thing to happen on this rally. It seems like the hosts will have a narrow win over Everton
