Everton vs Stoke City Tips and Odds - EPL Matchweek 1

Despite a significant outlay, manager Ronald Koeman says his squad is not yet comparable to the top six.

Premier League - Follow the Football match between Everton and Stoke City live with Eurosport.

Everton manager Koeman believes Barkley will leave Goodison Park this summer but insists the club will not be hostage to a deliberately late, undervalued offer for the midfielder.

"If there is a club thinking we can wait until the last day and we put some money on the table and we get Ross Barkley, sorry, you do not get Ross Barkley".

Manchester City have lavished untold riches on full-backs in the transfer window, but arguably their most important player this season will be captain Kompany.

Everton's last four Premier League campaigns have all started with a draw, with three of those ending 2-2.

"Like everybody knows we are still working on some targets and that is hard, but if we can do the business we want I think we are stronger than last season".

Lukaku hit 25 league goals for Everton last season and, with supply coming from the likes of Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Belgian should record a similar tally.


Odds of 7-10 look good for a home win.

Mark Hughes has warned his Stoke side not to get dazzled in the spotlight of the Rooney show.

"My understanding is it's very close", said Hughes. We've just got to make sure we don't get wrapped up in that.

However, in summer recruit Darren Fletcher and the understated Joe Allen, the Potters will have their own fairly dynamic midfield duo and will aim to disrupt Everton's flow on home turf.

Hughes is under no illusions that it will be a hard early test for his team.

"Okay, I believe if we get the picture of the last players we are stronger than last season but being stronger than last season does not mean you will win against the big six because they also will be more strong than last season". "He is an important player and he is one of the team that will start this Saturday".

"They've brought good players in but lost key players too, like Lukaku. We are looking forward to getting started".
