Stoke City vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 1st February 2017
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Britannia Stadium.
Stoke City might have considered themselves unlucky not to have come out with all three points in the Premier League clash against Manchester United. It was Wayne Rooney who pulled the scores level at 1-1 with seconds left on the clock and denied the Potters what would have been an excellent win.
Still, Mark Hughes managed team are on an excellent run of form. They are unbeaten in the last three league games with 2 wins on the backend. While playing at the Britannia Stadium, they are unbeaten in the last 5 with 3 wins and 2 draws.
Everton on the other hand picked up their third straight win with clean sheet by defeating Crystal Palace 1-0 in the previous round. A week ago, we saw them demolishing the oil rich Manchester City by a 4-0 margin. There is no doubt that the Toffees had gained some tremendous momentum and they look like the team to beat in Premier League at the moment. Away from home, they had troubles this season. But they are unbeaten in the last three before four matches in a row.

Stoke City vs Everton: Predictions
It is fair enough to say that both teams are coming on the back of some fine form. However in the away matches, Everton still remains a vulnerable team despite picking 7 points from their last 3 trips. The Britannia stadium is a difficult venue for traveling sides especially at this time of the year. We firmly believe Stoke will avoid the defeat here and we might well see something similar to a 1-1 scoreline at the end of 90 minutes.
