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)

Betting odds on full time result: Everton win 1.65, Draw 3.8, Stoke win 6.50
