Gibson hopeful Everton can silence 'unbelievable' Stoke fans

The Toffees travel to the Britannia Stadium to face a Potters side unbeaten in 14 matches at home in the Premier League, but the 25-year-old is confident of victory
Everton midfielder Darron Gibson has underlined the importance of silencing Stoke's supporters when the sides meet at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

The Potters are unbeaten in their last 14 games at home, but the Irishman is hopeful the Toffees can shine at one of the most intimidating grounds in the Premier League.

“It's always a tough place to go because they're a very good team defensively, and physically they're obviously one of the biggest teams in the Premier League so they're a threat from set pieces,” Gibson told the club’s official website.

“But we've been on a good run of form the last few games so hopefully if we can keep playing well I think we can go there and get a result.

“The [Stoke] fans are unbelievable there and like a 12th man but I think their size has a lot to do with it. They're well organised and good defensively but they're not impossible to beat at home. If we can go there, play our normal game and play well, I think we'll get a result.”

Gibson recently returned to the Everton first team after recovering from a thigh injury and has helped them secure five points in their last three games.

He added: “Obviously to be out for three months, it was quite a long time. But I worked hard when I was out and I slotted back in straight away which was pleasing.

“I'm happy enough. Hopefully I can just keep it going now over the next few games.”
