Everton are in solid form at the moment having only lost one of their last eight Premier League fixtures. However they could do with turning a few more of the draws into wins and a home fixture against Stoke gives them a prime chance to do exactly that.
Here's the Everton team most likely to play:

The Toffees have quite a substantial injury list with Jagielka, Browning, Hibbert, Oviedo, Pienaar, Naismith and McCarthy all at least doubts.
At the back, the familiar trio of Baines, Stones and Coleman will be joined by Mori. The familiar trio have now started 32 games together and have lost just eight (25%) of these fixtures.
In midfield centrally we should see Cleverly, Barry and Barkley all make consecutive starts. The three Englishmen have seen 13 goals scored in the nine games they've started together and Barkley in particular is great at exploiting the space left behind Lukaku.
Lennon and Mirallas could make way for Deulofeu and Kone to come in. Gerrard Deulofeu in particular is having a fantastic season. The young Spaniard has either scored or assisted a goal in nine of his last 20 appearances and on average this season has scored a goal or provided an assist for every 85 minutes of playing time he's been given.
Romelu Lukaku's run of scoring for eight games in a row came to an end against Newcastle but still looks as big a threat as ever. On average it takes him 121 minutes on the pitch to score a goal so after not find the net at St James' Park he's due a goal in front of his home fans vs Stoke.
