Stoke are again likely to be without defender Andy Wilkinson (groin) for the visit of the Toffees.

The 27-year-old missed Saturday’s draw against Arsenal but the club are hopeful he could return for the final two games of the campaign.

Manager Tony Pulis has hinted at giving Denmark’s Thomas Sorensen a chance in goal before the end of the season to give him match practice ahead of Euro 2012.

Defender Leighton Baines will be missing again for Everton.

A hamstring injury has sidelined the left-back since the FA Cup semi-final and manager David Moyes does not think he will be ready until next week.

Moyes reported a few “knocks and bruises” but he will more than likely select from the same squad which beat Fulham on Saturday.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Upson, Shotton, Wilson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Fuller.

Everton (from): Howard, Heitinga, Jagielka, Distin, Hibbert, Neville, Coleman, Fellaini, Osman, Gibson, Anichebe, Jelavic, Gueye, Duffy, McFadden, Stracqualursi, Mucha, Pienaar, Cahill, Hahnemann.
