Everton left-back Leighton Baines will miss the visit of Stoke after being ruled out for up to six weeks with a broken toe.

Potential replacements in defence include Bryan Oviedo, John Stones, midfielder Gareth Barry or even centre-back Sylvain Distin.

Midfielder Darron Gibson and striker Arouna Kone (both knee) are out long term while central defender Antolin Alcaraz is edging closer to involvement in the squad having been sidelined by injury since arriving in the summer.
