Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Stoke City

Manchester City have lavished untold riches on full-backs in the transfer window, but arguably their most important player this season will be captain Kompany.

Everton welcome Stoke City to Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and are favourites to come out on top with the Blues so strong on home soil compared to the poor form of Stoke on the road.

Bojan Krkic and summer signingEric Maxim Choupo-Moting are early doubts.

"Okay, I believe if we get the picture of the last players we are stronger than last season but being stronger than last season does not mean you will win against the big six because they also will be more strong than last season".

Koeman added: "I still believe he will make the move".

The 22-year-old scored 16 goals in 31 appearances averaging a goal every 167 minutes in the League which is not very far off from the results obtained by the season Lukaku, who averaged a goal every 131 minutes.

"We can improve and spend money but everyone can improve and is spending money".

As it was, referee Craig Pawson allowed the controversial strike to stand after former striker Romelu Lukaku was deemed not to have been interfering with play, and the two sides held out for a point apiece after a tetchy second 45 minutes. I won't say impossible but 25 goals is a lot and we have to find other ways; to find productivity from other players.

Everton's last four Premier League campaigns have all started with a draw, with three of those ending 2-2.

The departure of Lukaku certainly guarantees Ramirez of a chance to play as the centre-forward of the side in the upcoming season and the Spaniard will be keen to improve on his already impressive numbers from the last season. "All being well, he should be with us today (Friday) at some point and hopefully we will get that done".

"But still now we really have one striker, in my opinion. He will have a medical and that takes time, so the thinking is he will be ready to go from Monday".

Everton are now expected to kick on this season having made those additions, with England stars of the future Pickford and Keane both major additions, as well as Sandro - who impressed so much for Malaga last season - and the returning Rooney.

It's what they have lost that is troubling.
