The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Everton vs Stoke City Match Predictions & Match Preview 12/08/2017
New-look Everton, having signed world-class players this summer, are aiming for a top four shot and will have to live up to their best to do so, and Stoke City, meanwhile, are expected to experience the taste of potent forces early on into the season - as expectations are that they might break under pressure.
Match status: 2017/18 FA Premier League - Matchweek 1
Venue: "Goodison Park" in Liverpool, England
Merseyside team Everton came 7th in the last Premier league campaign, collecting a 61 points record - 8 less than that of Manchester United's tally and 15 clear of the team behind in Southampton, the largest point gap ever in the Premier League of a team closing the gap on the top seven - but the Toffees lost hold of their top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who was bought out in a €90 deal earlier in July.

At the Belgium international's expense there have arrived such top-drawer names like the ?30m Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford, the ?23.6m Ajax playmaker Davy Klaassen, Spain U-21 and Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez, the ?30m Burnley's central-back Michael Keane and Wayne Rooney has also joined his boyhood club, to shape a competitive side that has got every chance of matching the other big spenders.

Stoke City, in turn, ranked 13th last season and for a reason have been tipped for another mid-table finish to the 2017/18 season, while Potters head coach Mark Hughes will be looking to strengthen his side following the departure of Austrian left-wing striker Marko Arnautovic being sold to West Ham United. Besides, the club has been leading a relatively successful transfer activity by landing midfielder Darren Fletcher from West Brom and Chelsea's defender Kurt Zouma, joining on a season-long loan.

Everton appeared to be impressive playing last season's home fixtures as they gained as many as 43 points across 19 matches, winning 13 of those with five draws and two defeats in the run, which was their best at Goodison Park in 27 years. With Romelu Lukaky having left the club, it is new signings Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez who will be entrusted with the goalscoring responsibility to fill the void Lukalu left along with his 20+ goals a season.

While Toffees are concerned how to keep up their scoring potential, the Stoke City boss is in search of solidifying the defence line and in Kurt Zouma and Josh Tymon there must be solutions to the defensive issues they put up with throughout as Mark Hughes, who's been at the club over three years now, was witness to his side conceding the largest amount of goals - 56 - than in any of the previous eight seasons in the Premier League.

I think a clean sheet for either of the teams is unlikely to be the case here, and the home advantage should play its role to help the home side outclass the opposition - but we still expect goals to be scored at both ends.
