Stoke v Everton preview

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is bolstered by the return of Marc Wilson and Glenn Whelan as they host Everton on New Year's Day.

Both Wilson and Whelan return from suspension while forward Marko Arnautovic could make a comeback after missing Sunday's defeat at Tottenham through illness.

Defender Andy Wilkinson looks set for a spell on the sidelines with a foot injury, while goalkeeper Asmir Begovic remains out with a broken finger.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez welcomes goalkeeper Tim Howard back from suspension for the visit to the Britannia Stadium.

Leighton Baines made his comeback from injury against Southampton at the weekend and looks set to feature once again, but Martinez will be without Phil Jagielka (hamstring).

Darron Gibson, Gerard Deulofeu and Arouna Kone all remained sidelined with long-term injuries.
