Xherdan Shaqiri is a doubt for GW31 due to the calf injury he suffered on Monday night when Stoke were beaten by champions-elect Manchester City.
The Potters are one of only eight Premier League sides scheduled to play this weekend due to the FA Cup quarter-finals. The reduced slate made Shaqiri one the go-to players but news in the build-up to the Everton clash have cast doubt over his availability after Switzerland confirmed the player has been withdrawn from their upcoming international friendlies. However, images released via the club's website show Shaqiri training with the group, and barring a setback, there is an expectation that he will be included in the matchday squad. Stoke have dropped into the bottom three and will see this game as a must win with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool still to come. Speaking during Thursdays press-conference, manager Paul Lambert said: "There are a few decisions to be made before kick-off and there are a few areas of the pitch that we may need to shake things up in a little bit."
