Jagielka And Howard Return

@Everton

Phil Jagielka and Tim Howard are back from injury as Everton face Stoke.

Howard is back in goal after recovering from broken bones in his back, while Jagielka returns from a gashed ankle.

Steven Pienaar and Marouane Fellaini are suspended with Nikica Jelavic handed a recall after his late goal last time out.

Everton could operate with three central defenders or John Heitinga could play in midfield.

Howard's return means Jan Mucha drops to the bench.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Heitinga, Jagielka, Distin, Gibson, Mirallas, Osman, Jelavic, Anichebe. Subs: Mucha, Oviedo, Naismith, Hitzlsperger, Barkley, Stones, Duffy.

Stoke: Begovic, Cameron, Huth, Whelan, Wilson, Nzonzi, Shawcross, Walters, Crouch, Shotton, Jerome. Subs: Sorensen, Jones, Owen, Adam, Whitehead, Kightly, Wilkinson
