'Stoke will be frustrated'

Stoke 1-2 Everton

Tom Heaton

Burnley and England goalkeeper on 5 live sports extra

An excellent result for Everton. They have done well to get over the line today given they run they have been on away from home, of course the man advantage helps.

But if you’re Stoke you would be frustrated. They’ve shown a lot of fight, a lot of work rate and they will need that in their final seven games.

FULL-TIME

Stoke 1-2 Everton

Three points return to Merseyside with Everton bu it's bitter disappointment for Stoke.

The Potters have now won just one game in their last 12 games.

Stoke 1-2 Everton

As I say that, Stoke just went very, very close to that equaliser.

Saido Berahino finds himself with the ball in the Everton box, but his cross to Peter Crouch falls just behind the big man.

Stoke 1-2 Everton

Remarkably it was a record crowd at Stoke today. Just over 30,000 turned up. I'd guess about 10,000 of them have legged it back to the car/bus/train.

The home side are battling away but I don't see them rescuing a point. Sorry Stoke fans. Into stoppage time...

Stoke 1-2 Everton

Stoke are all over the place now as Everton push for a third goal.

But this game isn't over yet - Stoke chase an equaliser once again with five minutes left to play.

GOAL - Stoke 1-2 Everton

Cenk Tosun

That man again.

It's been end to end play again but it's Everton who take the lead. Walcott whips in a cross and Tosun scores his second with a diving header.

An equaliser but Choupo-Moting has hurt himself in the process.

Joe Allen whips in a free-kick and Choupo-Moting sticks a leg out to tap home.

Strikers queuing up to score

Stoke 0-1 Everton

Tom Heaton

In the end a few Everton players were queuing up to put it in.

Butland does well to save the first time around but Cenk Tosun is there to smash it in.

GOAL - Stoke 0-1 Everton

Cenk Tosun

It's three goals in as many games for Cenk Tosun.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin looks to have bundled the ball over the line before a clever clearance by Konstantinos Stafylidis. But it finds Tosun and he blasts it in.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Wow! Michael Keane runs about 20 yards with the ball and unleashes a powerful strike that changes direction in the air.

I don't think Butland realised how quickly it was moving before it reached him and he pushes it out for a corner.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

At the other end, a floating cross is lifted towards Peter Crouch in the box and you'd fancy all 6"7' of him to head it goalward.

But no, Jordan Pickford leaps high to palm the ball away just as it's about to land on Crouch's head.

The ball finds Glen Johnson, but his shot is hit straight at the goalkeeper.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

It's end to end stuff. Xherdan Shaqiri drives Stoke forward, but after that amounts to nothing and Theo Walcott breaks away down to the other end.

Calvert-Lewin then has an amazing chance to go one-on-one with Jack Butland but he can't control the ball and he misses a golden opportunity. He'll be frustrated with that one.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Unlucky for Everton. A Wayne Rooney corner finds Michael Keane but his header is blocked on it's way towards goal.

Shortly after, Theo Walcott is fouled just outside the area and Rooney lines up to take it. I would say it's a little far out for a shot...

It is. It's an easy catch for Jack Butland.

YELLOW CARD - Stoke 0-0 Everton

Ryan Shawcross

Ryan Shawcross goes into the book after a late challenge on Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

This game has come into life after a groggy start to the second half, but the settled snow is making it very slow.

SUBSTITUTION

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Davies off, Dominic Calvert-Lewin comes on in his place.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Tom Davies is down again in the box. He collided with Jack Butland and the physios are on.

One of them is holding his neck in position. He's starting to sit up but the physio signals to the bench for a change. Looks like that's Davies' game over.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Wayne Rooney has the first chance of the second half, putting his laces through the ball from 20 yards.

It's an easy take for Jack Butland though, but I hope his hands are warm otherwise that will have been a stinger.

'More of the same from Stoke'

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Tom Heaton

Burnley and England goalkeeper on 5 live sports extra

If I am a Paul Lambert, I would want more of the same from Stoke. They haven't given it away cheaply, and played fairly well.

Beyond that, the counter attack will be important if Everton push on, and the widemen Xherdan Shaqiri and Ramadan Sobhi will be key in that. But for the most part continue what you are doing.

Second half underway

Stoke 0-0 Everton

What will the next 45 minutes bring?

Everton's Theo Walcott kicks us off as they look to make their man advantage count.

Not the best start, the ball goes straight out of play for a Stoke throw-in.

'Everton must make advantage count'

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Tom Heaton

Burnley and England goalkeeper on 5 live sports extra

I think Everton have been solid enough, but with the man advantage, they now need to take the game to Stoke. A change might need to happen, probably one of their attacking players.

HALF-TIME

Stoke 0-0 Everton

The whistle goes and that's the first 45 minutes up. Not much to talk about from the first half except for Charlie Adam's red card. Oh, and the snow.

Time for the players to get warm!

Stoke 0-0 Everton

One minute is added on at the bet365 Stadium and it doesn't look like either side is close to scoring.

The players are finding it very difficult to play flowing football in the conditions.

Are changes of tactics in store for the second half?

Jimmy Smallwood: One of the great things about top-flight professional football is that yes, those participating are all millionaires but, depending on the weather, they do have to spend nearly two hours in sleet, snow and storms chasing a ball for our entertainment.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Offside - Tom Davies just steps ahead of his defender as Wayne Rooney plays the ball through.

Everton have the one-man advantage but as we approach half-time, but it doesn't show.

'Not a red on first viewing'

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Tom Heaton

Burnley and England goalkeeper on 5 live sports extra

I didn't think it was that bad. I certainly thought it was a foul. In fairness the referee is a lot closer. My initial reaction was that it was not a red card.

After seeing the replay, both legs leave the floor, so you can understand if the ref deems him to be out of control.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

The atmosphere has certainly lifted since Adam's red card, and Wayne Rooney is booed every time he touches the ball now.

You'll be pleased to hear the snow has stopped (for now?), but it covers a good half of the pitch and is really slowing the ball down.

Snow angels anyone?

Stoke 0-0 Everton

If you squint, you might be able to make out Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland.

'Wintery conditions playing a part'

It's important to keep your concentration in conditions like this.

The wind is playing a big part and snow can make the ball slippery. And no taking any risks whatsoever at the back.

The referee Martin Atkinson originally showed the red card to Xherdan Shaqiri before realising his mistake and sending Adam off for an early bath.

RED CARD - Stoke 0-0 Everton

Charlie Adam

Charlie Adam is off!

He lunges into a tackle on Wayne Rooney and catches his leg just below the knee.

The Everton man is in some pain.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Chance for Peter Crouch.

It's an excellent ball in from Glen Johnson. Crouch (of course) rises highest at the far post under pressure from Phil Jagielka and it just goes over.

One more goal for Crouch and he becomes Stoke's outright all-time leading Premier League scorer.

Weather update

Stoke 0-0 Everton

It was really sunny just a few minutes ago.

Now, the snow is seriously falling and it's proving difficult to see the players.

It's March.

'Davies' energy impressive'

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Tom Heaton

Burnley and England goalkeeper on 5 live sports extra

It looks like Tom Davies is in the number 10 role and Wayne Rooney is playing deeper. We thought it might be the other way but Davies is the one that has been pushed on.

I think Davies is excellent. What stands out to me is his energy, so he might be in there to press higher up and cover that area of the pitch. Interested to see how he does today.

Appeals for handball!

Idrissa Gueye practically walks down the pitch with the ball with no Stoke player willing to close him down. He passes out right to Seamus Coleman who goes to whip in a cross but it hits a Stoke player and Coleman screams for handball.

Ref points for a corner-kick - it amounts to nothing.

Stoke 0-0 Everton

Stoke are really up for this one and have started well, while Everton have started deep.

They've just had a counter attack as Theo Walcott wheeled away with the ball. It eventually finds Leighton Baines who puts in a cross from the left, but it's too high and goes behind for goal kick.
