Stoke may struggle to justify favouritism against Everton

Paul Lambert's Stoke are going through a rough spell

Premier League
3pm Saturday

Stoke won their first game under Paul Lambert, beating Huddersfield 2-0, but they haven't won any of the next six and make no obvious appeal as favourites this weekend.

The pressure is increasing on the second-bottom Potters, who face three of the big six in their remaining eight games.


Everton are almost safe but only because of their efforts at Goodison Park, where they have won nine matches this season. They have not won on the road this year and may have to settle for a point at Stoke.
