LIVERPOOL, England(AP) Stoke avoided its regular Europa League hangover with a hard-fought 1-0 Premier League win at Everton on Sunday.

Defender Robert Huth's first goal of the campaign early in the game meant that Stoke recorded a victory after a European outing for only the second time this season.

Everton missed the chance to pick up a third successive league win, but could have had a penalty just before halftime and easily have had another after the break.

Apostolos Vellios made just his second start up front for Everton in place of Louis Saha, and his club did not pose enough of a threat in the opposition penalty area despite dominating the second half.

Stoke rose five places to eighth, two points ahead of Everton.
