The Britannia Stadium is a difficult place for visiting teams and Stoke are unbeaten in their last five home games but have only won one of their last eight league fixtures. Their tally of 33 league goals is the lowest in the top flight.
Stoke defender Andy Wilkinson is expected to miss out with the groin problem, but goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen may get the nod. Ryan Shawcross is expected to make his 200th Stoke appearance, while Cameron Jerome awaits his 200th career league start.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis said: "I don't know what David puts in their water, but they drive forward in the second half of the season. Everton are one of the real form teams at the moment. We will have to be really on it to get anything out of it. It's been a long season but the players are still going. We've got a very difficult game here on Tuesday night.
David Moyes said: "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."
Stoke from: Begovic, Huth, Shawcross, Shotton, Upson, Whelan, Wilson, Pennant, Jerome, Whitehead, Etherington, Delap, Walters, Crouch, Sorensen, Upson, Palacios, Jones, Fuller, Jerome.
