    • - Remember, we'll have video highlights of this match from 00.01 Wednesday morning (UK only).
    • - Thanks for joining us this evening!
    • 90'+5 FULL TIME! And that's the last kick of the game. It ends 1-1 as Stoke and Everton share the points at the Britannia Stadium.
    • 90'+5 Huth hammers the free-kick low and hard, it takes a deflection but Howard adjusts his feet quickly enough and saves!!!
    • 90'+4 Throw for Everton deep in Stoke's half, one last chance... The ball comes in but is cleared and Stoke race clear. Pienaar fouls Fuller, is booked for it, and Stoke have a free-kick 30 yards out with seconds remaining on the clock...
    • 90'+3 Huth has a shot blocked and then Jones volleys over, the ball clipping Heitinga's head but no corner is given...
    • 90'+2 Fuller causes a panic when he chases down a long ball forward and Stoke win a corner...
    • 90' Four minutes of added time to be played...
    • 89' McFadden is sent on in place of Osman as Everton make a final substitution.
    • 88' Everton pressure Stoke's defence and Fellaini puts in a cross but Stoke clear and come forward... End-to-end stuff right to the final minute here... Jelavic swipes at a cross from the left but his volley is weak and off target.
    • 87' Having said that Stoke get in with a long ball forward but Fuller slips just as he goes to shoot.
    • 86' Into the final five minutes and Everton in the ascendancy...
    • 83' Cross from Jelavic from the left but Fellaini and Stracqualursi get in the way of one another...
    • 82' Hibbert's cross is cut out as Everton come forward again...
    • 81' Everton on the attack and Pienaar picks out Osman on the edge of the area, who takes the ball down and hits an effort straight at Begovic.
    • 79' A change for Everton forced by what looks like an injury problem for Gueye, who came on for Anichebe in the first half. He's replaced by Stracqualursi.
    • 78' Handbags between Huth and Jelavic as the pair shove one another a few times in an off-the-ball incident.
    • 76' Fuller drives at the Everton defence and comes in off the left, winning a corner for his side. Typically strong play from the forward.
    • 75' Jagielka meets the delivery but sends his effort over the bar.
    • 74' Everton come back at Stoke and win a corner...
    • 72' Jerome gets a glancing header on a cross from the right and the ball loops over the bar. The forward's been electric since his introduction...
    • 70' Stoke hit Everton on the break and Jerome latches onto a ball forward, holding off two challenges and drilling the bouncing ball into the ground. A deflection off a sliding Jagielka helps carry the ball past Howard and it's 1-1!
    • 69' GOAL FOR STOKE! What a substitution! Jerome brings Stoke level!
    • 67' A triple substitution from Stoke boss Tony Pulis; Fuller on for Walters, Jerome on for Crouch, and Whelan on for Delap.
    • 66' Wilson tries to find Jones with a cross but it's just a touch too high.
    • 65' Upson sends a long ball forward from a free-kick but Everton are able to deal with it with relative ease.
    • 62' Shawcross picks up a yellow card for a late one on Pienaar.
    • 61' The game's opening up a fair bit now with the action swinging from end to end...
    • 59' Jones goes down looking for a penalty but none of his team-mates back him up with the appeal, and rightly so. He went down far too easily under an aerial challenge from Heitinga...
    • 58' Cahill mis-times a volley and gets it all wrong, and Stoke hit Everton on the counter...
    • 57' GREAT CHANCE FOR OSMAN! He wins the ball and starts the move, feeding Pienaar down the left who lays the ball square back inside, and with the whole goal to aim at Osman slices a shot wide with Fellaini waiting behind him to slam it home too!
    • 55' Great play from Walters down the left, as he cuts inside Hibbert but his cross is cut out by Jagielka. Corner to Stoke...
    • 54' Wilson booked for a foul on Pienaar in the build up to that chance...
    • 53' Everton counter and Osman appeals for a penalty when the ball cannons into the midriff of Huth when he shoots. Referee waves play on. It wasn't a handball.
    • 52' Long ball into the Everton area is cleared out as Stoke continue to look for an opening.
    • 51' Stoke trying to put the Everton defence under a bit of pressure, but not making any inroads...
    • 49' Delap launches another throw but this one is flat and low and Everton clear.
    • 48' A controlled start to the second half with both sides looking to take an early hold.
    • 46' KICK OFF! Second half is go!
    • 45'+2 HALF TIME. Cruel blow for Stoke as they go into the break 1-0 down, Peter Crouch's own goal separating the teams... We'll be back shortly for the second half so stick around!
    • 45' Cross comes in from the right and the ball cannons around, coming off Crouch's left shoulder and beating Begovic...
    • 45' GOAL FOR EVERTON! Crouch own goal! Everton a goal up!
    • 44' Not far wide from Jones as the striker meets a long throw from, you guessed it, Delap...
    • 43' The ball remains inside Stoke's area and Gueye sends a left-footed shot high and wide from an angle...
    • 42' SAVE FROM BEGOVIC! Pienaar cuts in off the left and fires a dipping shot at goal which the Stoke 'keeper gets fingertips to and push the ball over the bar!
    • 41' Pienaar's delivery is cleared but the ball comes back to the Everton man on the left wing.
    • 40' Everton win another corner...
    • 39' Jelavic wins a corner for Everton after some hard work down the left...
    • 38' Good cross from the right by Walters but Jagielka gets up well and heads clear.
    • 35' Gueye turns Shawcross inside out and fires in a cross from the left, and it comes through to an unexpecting Jelavic who reacts but can only send the ball over the bar.
    • 33' Stoke on the backfoot at the moment as Everton pass the ball around the edge of the Stoke area. They're forced back a bit now, but Pienaar is looking especially dangerous for the visitors...
    • 31' Long throw from Delap again and Huth gets well under a header, sending the ball looping up in the air and Howard has to tip the ball over his bar.
    • 29' Cahill inside to Osman who runs onto the ball and fires a fierce shot goal-bound, but it's straight at Begovic. Good chance nevertheless...
    • 28' Stoke pressing well when Everton are in possession...
    • 27' Fellaini has a shot blocked inside the area and Osman follows up the loose ball with an effort that is on target but tame. Begovic saves comfortably.
    • 26' Everton back on the ball and Cahill is pulling some strings in midfield as the away side knock the ball around. Pienaar then looks for the incisive pass in to Jelavic, but it's just slightly overdone...
    • 24' And again a Delap throw puts Everton on edge, and they manage to scramble the ball clear. The visitors struggling to deal with the Stoke man's deliveries...
    • 23' Another Delap throw sees Howard forced to come and punch clear...
    • 22' Anichebe is replaced by Gueye - an unfortunate end to the striker's evening.
    • 20' Anichebe back on but he's struggling and he pulls up when setting off on a sprint. Looks like he'll have to come off...
    • 18' Anichebe lands awkwardly and requires some treatment...
    • 17' Long throw from Delap and again Huth meets it with his head, sending the ball just over... Twice the two Stoke players have combined now...
    • 15' Distin with a great whipped cross from the left and it's just a whisker too high for Jelavic...
    • 14' Etherington tries a speculative effort as he catches the ball on his knee and volleys over.
    • 13' Pienaar and Fellaini link brilliantly as they thread together a series of neat passes, but the Belgian just misplaces his last one inside for the South African.
    • 12' Etherington with a driving run down the left and he puts a cross to the far post, where Distin defends it excellently under pressure from Walters...
    • 10' Everton enjoying some good possession inside these opening minutes. Fellaini gets into the area but takes a heavy touch, and Anichebe then charges down Begovic's clearance but the ball goes out for a goal-kick.
    • 8' Walters gets down the right and whips a cross in, but it's too close to 'keeper Howard who gathers.
    • 7' Anichebe goes down under a challenge from Shawcross as Pienaar feeds him inside the area but it's not called.
    • 6' Anichebe with a good turn inside the area and he puts the ball into the six-yard area but Stoke clear. Pienaar looking lively down the left for the visitors.
    • 5' Up the other end we go and Everton win a corner... Distin gets up for the header but puts it wide. Decent start yto the game...
    • 4' Delap with a signature long throw to the far post and Huth gets a header on target! The flag goes up anyway as Crouch is offside.
    • 2' Stoke venture forward first but Jones fouls Jagielka and the move ends.
    • 19:45 KICK OFF! We're underway at the Brittania Stadium...
    • 19:44 The teams are out on the pitch and ready for the off...
    • 19:40 Stoke are unbeaten in their last six Premier League home matches against Merseyside opposition, keeping a clean sheet in the last four and winning the last three.
    • 19:35 Everton have scored four goals in each of their last three Premier League games – no team in Premier League history has scored exactly four goals in four consecutive games. Can they set a new record and notch four this evening?
    • 19:30 Everton manager David Moyes: "It has been a long old season. They have had a lot of games, they got through the group stage of the Europa League and they will be disappointed their league position is not further up. European football was a great achievement for them but it does take its toll when you are in the Thursday-Sunday scenario - but I would take it. I think nowadays it does [make a difference] because I think the players think about it the number of games they play."
    • 19:25 Stoke boss Tony Pulis: "It's been a long season but the players are still going. We've got a very difficult game here on Tuesday night. Everton, along with Arsenal, are one of the real form teams at the moment. We will have to be really on it to get anything out of it and then we finish with QPR and Bolton, both fighting for their lives. All the games left are against teams playing for something. It is going to be a really tough finish for us."
    • 19:20 This match features the clubs with the fewest first half goals this season, Stoke (13) and Everton (15), so let's not expect a goal-fest in the first 45 minutes. Hopefully that's jinxed it and we see a flurry...
    • 19:15 Everton are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games, the joint-best current run along with Chelsea, thanks in part to Nikica Jelavic's superb scoring form - Jelavic has scored two goals in each of his last three Premier League appearances.
