Selection worries for Moyes
[[views]], BY ClubCall
Everton keeper Tim Howard is a doubt for the clash with Stoke and both Marouane Fellaini and Steven Pienaar are out suspended.
Howard will be checked to see how his back injury is progressing after sitting out the last four weeks after breaking two bones in his back.
Centre half Phil Jagielka remains troubled by an ankle injury so he too faces a late test, if he fails to make it then he will be replaced by either John Heitinga or Shane Duffy, either of whom will partner Sylvain Distin at the back and Tony Hibbert remains on the sidelines.
Moyes will run the rule over his international players to check for bumps and bruises before finalising his starting XI.
Seamus Coleman, who played 90 minutes during Ireland's 2-2 draw with Austria on Tuesday, is expected to return at right-back, while Leighton Baines should be fresh after he watched England's 1-1 draw with Montenegro from the bench alongside Leon Osman.
