Confirmed: Everton v Stoke City lineups

Everton Goodison 2

Everton and Stoke City will face each other in the Premier League this afternoon.

Everton will be looking to kick off their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with victory over Stoke City at home this afternoon.

The Toffees finished seventh in the Premier League last season and will be aiming to break into the top six this campaign.

The Merseyside outfit have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far and have signed a number of players, and many fans will expect Ronald Foeman’s side to push for a Champions League place.

Forward Wayne Rooney, defender Michael Keane, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and attacking midfielder Davy Klaassen are among the players that Everton have signed this summer.

Stoke have also been busy in the summer transfer window so far and have recruited midfielder Darren Fletcher and forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting among other players.

The Potters, though, have lost attacker Marko Arnautovic, who has joined Premier League rivals West Ham United.

This afternoon’s Premier League game between Everton and Stoke promises to be an interesting and exciting affair, and this is how the two teams will line up at Goodison Park.
