Match preview for Everton v Stoke City on 30th March 2013 Easter weekend, plus betting odds.
Everton v Stoke City
Goodison Park, Saturday, 30 March 2013, Kick-off: 17:30 GMT
With Everton stars Pienaar and Fellaini both missing this match through suspension, this game is a close one to call. The Toffees have found it hard going in recent history against the Potters’ style of play, having won none of the last four meetings – 2 drawn and 2 Stoke wins.
Having said that, Stoke look to be in the mid-table safety zone – not suggesting that is their only ambition – but Everton are just six points from a Champions League place. They are a dark horse but not to be discounted.
Stoke seem to have become a little complacent of late and have only managed one win in 2013, and with Everton craving to finish ahead of Liverpool as usual, they should overwhelm Stoke.Prediction: Everton 3 Stoke 1 (Correct Score odds of 13.00)
