A trip to Stoke is rarely a mission too many away fans anticipate with glee. With a raucous crowd, several behemoth players and an intimidating, physical approach, each visiting side is given a stern examination of their credentials.

This game was no different for Everton, and David Moyes will be pleased his side secured a point.

An amusing own goal from Ryan Shawcross gave the Toffees the lead, before Kenwyne Jones levelled proceedings when his tame header seemed to bewilder Tim Howard.

As is so often the case at the Britannia Stadium, the action was continually punctuated by the referee's whistle, as tussles, tangles and altercations prevented either side from establishing a rhythm.

Overall, the draw was a fair result, although both sides will feel frustrated by certain events.

Here are six Everton-related talking points to emerge from this result.
