Steven Naismith replaces Kevin Mirallas as Everton face Stoke.

The switch, enforced by the recurrence of the Belgian's hamstring injury, is the only change made to the Blues starting line-up from the win over Spurs.

Naismith was the man who replaced Mirallas when he was withdrawn at half-time last weekend.

It means Tim Howard makes his landmark 200th consecutive league appearance in the Everton goal.

Seamus Coleman continues at right-back after returning last weekend, while Sunday's matchwinner Nikica Jelavic is again up front.

Apostolos Vellios is again on the bench after he had a hand in Jelavic's late goal last time out.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Gibson, Naismith, Fellaini,  Osman, Pienaar, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Heitinga, Vellios, Barkley, Duffy, Gueye, Hitzlsperger.

Stoke: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross (c), Huth, Wilkinson; Walters, Whelan, Nzonzi, Adam, Etherington; Jones. Subs: Sorensen, Palacios, Whitehead, Upson, Kightly, Crouch, Jerome.
