Everton vs. Stoke City: 6 Things We Learned

Everton sustained their slim hopes of a European finish with a hard-earned 1-0 win over Stoke City, leaving them sixth in the table and still just about relevant in the Champions League conversation.

The three points were secured via a sublime solo goal from Kevin Mirallas, who briefly lit up an ordinary contest with a moment of genuine class.

Collecting a Tim Howard clearance well in his own half, Mirallas proceeded to sprint the length of the pitch, outwitting both Steven N'Zonzi and Geoff Cameron in the process, before slotting home past Asmir Begovic.

Both sides had decent chances to add to the scoring, but, almost justly, the Belgian's goal stood alone in defining the contest as the Toffees held on for their third Premier League win on the bounce.

Here's a look at some Everton-related talking points to emerge from this encounter.
