Predicted Stoke v Everton line-ups: Adam and Lennon to start

Stoke City and Everton go head-to-head in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

To be played on Wednesday 4th March 2015 at 19:45. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke

Odds: Stoke 6/4, Draw 2/1, Everton 21/10

Stoke City could jump up to eighth place with a win over Everton, and if results to their way, as Mark Hughes' men gather some form in the latter stages of the season.

With four wins in the last six games including two on the trot heading into the Everton clash, the Potters are in fine form right now.

Saturday's 1-0 win over Hull City came courtesy of a Peter Crouch header, but manager Hughes is expected to stick with Mame Biram Diouf in attack with Jon Walters and Victor Moses flanking him.

Midfielder Stephen Ireland was injured in a controversial challenge from Maynor Figueroa in that Hull game, and will miss out against Everton, with Charlie Adam expected to take his place.

Everton arrive at the Britannia Stadium in desperate need of a win, with Roberto Martinez's men winning just one of the last ten Premier League games.

Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal was another disappointing result for the Toffees, who are hovering just six points above the relegation zone.

Martinez is likely to stick with a similar side, with Luke Garbutt deputising for Leighton Baines at left back, whilst Aaron Lennon could start to add some pace on the break for Everton.
