Ross Barkley and James McCarthy are both out with groin and knee injuries respectively.

Stoke gave debuts to Darren Fletcher and Kurt Zouma and Mark Hughes' side nearly took an early lead when Joe Allen released Mame Biram Diouf down the right for a cross-shot that Pickford blocked.

Manager Mark Hughes says Saido Berahino, whose fitness was questioned last season, is "in great shape". Setting the bar too low could make fans, players and club owners question if they have the right manager for the job.

Before all that though, the Toffees at least get to start the league season at Goodison Park, versus Stoke City. The reception they gave me was fantastic. That is a good signal for everybody.

"Last season I think we won 1-0, the same result, and it was maybe a little bit the same". Their only defeats came against Liverpool and Chelsea.

A revitalised Wayne Rooney is relishing a new lease of life at Goodison Park after scoring the victor in Everton's 1-0 victory over Stoke City in their opening Premier League game of the season.

The forward started tenaciously and could have found himself in the book for a late tackle on former United team-mate Darren Fletcher, but Rooney's desire to track back and help his side defensively also proved invaluable against a direct Stoke threat.

The glow from Rooney's 199th Premier League goal was nearly erased when Fletcher went close to equalising after half-time with a stinging strike. The Potters finished with only four wins, five draws and 10 losses on the road. He last scored in West Brom's 3-2 home victory over Crystal Palace in February 2016.
