Everton

Everton suffered their third Premier League away defeat in a row with a 3-0 defeat against Southampton on Saturday. The toffees have now failed to score in all three matches at St Mary's Stadium since Southampton regained promotion, scoring three own goals in the process. ahead of this fixture, history favours Everton who have only lost one Premier League match on Boxing Day (W3 D3) since it's inception and Roberto Martinez has never lost as a manager against Stoke City (W3 D7). No side has committed fewer fouls than Everton in the Premier League this season (161). David James (56) is the only player to have been involved in more 0-0 draws than Gareth Barry (53) in Premier League history.




Possible Line ups



Stoke City

Stoke tasted defeat to league leaders Chelsea in their home match against Chelsea on Monday night. This fixture takes place just 87 hours after that match finished which is 53 hours of preparation time behind than the home side. The signs aren't promising for Stoke in this fixture as they've only managed 10 goals in their last 12 Premier League matches against Everton and Stoke have faced seven sides currently in the bottom half of the Premier League this season and have failed to beat any of those clubs (D3 L4). Stoke have committed the third highest foul tally in the league this season with 217 which is only beaten by Crystal Palace and Leicester (226).




Statistics & Injuries



Mark Hughes has definitely edged previous battles between these two managers with nine points from their previously 6 meetings, four more than the Catalan has managed. His first defeat against Everton came in this fixture last season as Stoke were pummeled 4-0 by Everton. All of the draws between these managers have come in the form of 1-1 which is a 7/1 shot among some bookies for those of you interested in that sort of thing. Mark Hughes has only managed two victories against his former side in 16 attempts (D8 L6). Both of those victories came at Goodison Park with Hughes securing the first with a 1-0 win for Blackburn in 2005 followed with a 2-1 scoreline with Manchester City in 2009.

Nice work as always, but why not just edit the first post of the existing thread and name it properly initially?

Thought that was the plan? :S


Also think this'll be a good response from the team and we'll smash em by 3 or more.
Something has to give!

Great write up. Really need to kick our Christmas hat trick of games with a win, and hopefully an uplifting performance as its all been getting a bit grim recently.

Mirallas and McCarthy back for this?

That would be great.

@Shogun  Great stuff as usual, well done.

4 of their last 5 games were a tough run of fixtures.

And when I see stats like:

"Everton who have only lost one Premier League match on Boxing Day (W3 D3) since it's inception and
Roberto Martinez has never lost as a manager against Stoke City (W3 D7)."

I just go, "ah fuck!"

Hope it stays that way.

Can see us winning today. It's the games after that bother me, we can't seem to string along a good few results which we desperately need to do to finally kick start our season.

I hope atleast one of Mirallas or McCarthy is back, hopefully Mirallas as we lack quality wide options when he's out!

Also I hope Kone gets a good run, either from start or at some point in game.

I'd gladly take a 2 nil, 2-1 in our favour today, preferably a 2 nil with a nice clean sheet on Stonesy's return to the team.
