Everton

Everton picked up their first win in five matches with a last gasp victory away to Newcastle on Saturday evening. However, Everton have failed to win in either of their last two matches at Goodison Park and form at Goodison Park has been unimpressive throughout the year with the Toffees winning just seven of their 19 matches at home in 2015 (D7, L5). Despite the lack of home wins, Goodison Park has seen 19 goals scored in it's last four fixtures and Romelu Lukaku has notched six goals in his last six home matches after netting just one goal in his 14 previous home appearances prior to that. Everton have now scored in nine consecutive league matches which is the joint most alongside Watford going into this fixture. Everton lost this fixture 1-0 last season but they've only conceded nine goals in their last 20 home league matches against Stoke and haven't conceded more than a single goal in any of those matches. They've also only failed to win in three of their last 10 PL home matches against Stoke (W7, D1, L2).

Possible Line-Ups


Stoke

Stoke made it three wins from four league matches at the Britannia Stadium with their comfortable 2-0 win against Manchester United on Saturday. Despite receiving many positive plaudits for their play this season, only Aston Villa (15) have scored fewer Premier League goals (16) than Stoke this season and no team has less goals away from home (6). However, only Spurs (14) have conceded fewer goals in the league this season whilst no side has conceded less goals than Stoke away from home (7). Stoke have kept a league high of  five clean sheets in nine matches away from home this season and they've kept eight clean sheets in their last 11 Premier League matches. Marko Arnautovic is Stoke's top scorer this season with six goals which is one more than he scored in the previous two seasons combined and this season, he has scored five of their seven goals against last season's top six Premier League sides.

Why are the two matches being played so close? What's wrong with playing this second game on Tuesday or Wednesday? Would make so much more sense.

The last minute winner against Newcastle is worthless if we cannot win here.

Yeah apparently we all love the Christmas fixtures. I don't. I think they're stupid. Why do our entire squad/team have to spend Christmas Day in a hotel in god knows where just so a Boxing Day game can be played? The weather is usually shit and it should be a time for families. I know a fair few love the tradition and that getting out f the house can be a good thing but I still don't get it.

I think they could have pushed the fixtures out a day this time. It is crazy.

I genuinely don't mean this as an insult, but if you're complaining about football being on too frequently, you're probably somewhat depressed as a human being.
