The midfielder endured fitness problem during last month’s Carabao Cup clash with Huddersfield but impressed the Blues boss with his resilience.

An Everton side featuring nine changes from the side that were held to a 2-2 draw at Leeds at the weekend looked to be up against it when Iwobi’s goal was cancelled out by Tom Lees before Kean was given his marching orders.

The former Super Eagles captain was not in the Potters squad that put up a good performance despite a 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the quarterfinal of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening, a game he badly wanted to be involved in given his Chelsea past and relationship with Jose Mourinho.

The Blues booked a last-16 clash against West Ham United at Goodison Park next week courtesy of Richarlison’s first-half double and goals after the break from Iwobi, Bernard and substitute Moise Kean.
