Stoke City - Everton Betting Preview: Martinez's side to pick up another win on the road

Stoke City and Everton face off on New Years Day looking to kick start 2014 with a win. The Potters had a nightmare of a Christmas period, conceding eight goals and scoring only once in their two matches.

Newcastle inflicted a 5-1 defeat on the Potters, a game in which manager Mark Hughes was sent to the stands, following two of his players, who also saw red.

The Potters then visited North London, with Tottenham Hotspur running out 3-0 winners. William Hill price them at 14/5 (3.80) to get back to winning ways on home soil.

Everton have been in sensational form this season, currently sitting in fourth position, five points from Arsenal in top spot.

Despite losing to Sunderland on Boxing Day, the Toffees bounced back against Southampton three days later with a 2-1 win.

William Hill price the visitors at an appealing 21/20 (2.05) to take all three points in this game. The same firm price the draw at 11/5 (3.20).

Everton have been a tough side to beat this season, losing only two matches from their 19 matches in the Premier League. Roberto Martinez's men are unbeaten in their last five matches away in the league too, beating Swansea last time out.

With victories against Manchester United, Aston Villa and West Ham United in the league expect them to carry on this form against Stoke City on New Years Day.

The price of 21/20 (2.05) for them to win with William Hill is certainly worth an investment, especially when you consider Stoke's first choice goal keeper Asmir Begovic is out injured and with the Potters leaking goals.
