Everton vs Stoke


Everton finished 7th last season with a record of 17-10-11 and goal difference 62-44. Specially home at Goodison Park they were very solid (4th best) with a record of 13-4-2 and 42-16 goal difference. They are coming from a good pre season as well, undefeated in all 4 friendlies against good teams as Sevilla, Genk & Twente. Also, they had no problems in the Europa League qualification against Ruzomberok, winning both matches 1-0. Lukaku is gone, obviously a class player they will miss, but in my opinion Everton boss Ronald Koeman have spent the money smart. New arrivals as Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane & Davy Klassen seems to be very good signings. Players reported injured; Coleman, Lennon, Barkley, McCarthy, Funes Mori & Bolasie.


Stoke finished 13th last season. They were the 11th best away team, with a away record of 4-5-10 and 17-32 goal difference. They are coming from a pretty bad pre season, but won their last match 1-2 vs RB Leipzig. They have conceded in 7 of 9 friendlies, and only won 4 of these. Teams as St. Pauli, Crewe Alexandra & Sheffield United were all to strong, not very impressing imo, although friendlies are training it gives us a feeling at least. Players as Arnautovic, Walters, Whelan & Bardsley are all sold, and new players are Choupo-Moting, Tymon, Fletcher & Zouma. In my opinion, Stoke seems to be weaker if we compare the total of players in / out. They will be missing Stephen Ireland & Afellay here. Bojan reported doubtful.


* Everton won this match 1-0 last season.


Everton´s next matches are very difficult, they are facing Man City, Chelsea, Tottenham & Man Utd. This is another reason for my pick, a good start here will be very important for the hosts.


First rounds are always hard to predict, but I think this is the best pick for value in PL round 1. Everton should be much better, and have already played 2 qualification games in Europe League + their good performances in their friendlies tells me that they are ready. I expect Everton to win this, and chances for a 2+ goal win should be big imo.
