Andy Gray reckons Everton could be drawn into a relegation scrap.
Roberto Martinez’s side have won just one of their last 10 league matches, and have not tasted success at Goodison Park since December 15.
The latest home disappointment came on Sunday when Everton needed an 88th-minute own goal from Matthew Upson to allow them to snatch a point against bottom side Leicester.
Gray: “They have only won three at home this season.
“They need to start winning games somewhere and I don’t see where that is.
“It is two tough, tough games (coming up). Maybe they will play better away from Goodison, the pressure might be a little less.
“They might enjoy Arsenal, they will let them play, but Stoke is never an easy place to go when you need to go and get a result, and Everton do.
“They are just five points above the relegation zone and I said about a month ago I don’t include Everton in the relegation candidates but I have to say if the results keep going like this, they are going to be drawn in.”
