'Love this team', 'Attacking team away from home?' - Everton fans react to starting XI v Stoke City
Everton head to the Brittania Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League as they look to get one over relegation candidates Stoke City.
The Potters are in a dismal run of form, having failed to register a victory in any of their last five league outings, while things are looking better for Sam Allardyce’s side.
A 2-0 win last time out against Brighton and Hove Albion was a great all-round display from the Blues who are now up to ninth in the division.
The Toffees have an opportunity to jump to eighth in the table with a victory over Paul Lambert’s side – that’s because Leicester are involved in FA Cup action on Sunday.
An injury to Gylfi Sigurdsson against Brighton did blight the points haul after it emerged the Icelandic had suffered knee ligament damage, but Big Sam is hopeful that the attacker will return the before the end of the season.
After hearing the Blues chosen line-up, fans were happy by and large with the manager’s starting line-up to face Stoke.

Klaassen back in the squad, hope he comes on and shows us what he can do, don't think he's had a fair chance yet. Good line up
