Shaqiri scored his first Stoke goals at Everton

The Switzerland international scored his first goals for Stoke, since his summer move from Inter Milan, in the 4-3 win at Everton.

He put the Potters 1-0 up after 16 minutes as he capped a wonderful counter-attacking move after Marko Arnautovic had set him up with the goal at his mercy.

On the stroke of half time, Shaqiri scored a goal of the season contender as he met Bojan’s delightful long pass on the edge of the area with a first time chip that looped over Tim Howard and into the top corner.

It wasn’t just his goals that caught the eye however, as his direct attacking intention helped Mark Hughes’ side secure a precious three points.
