Stones aiming to keep Everton place for Cup tie
The England Under-21s man is hopeful of another opportunity against the Championship side.
He told evertontv: "I just need to take my chance now and embrace it. I want to give the manager a problem to choose his side when Jags is back fit. That's all I can do really.
"It's nice to hear the faith the manager puts in me. It puts a lot of confidence into us and playing against Stoke was a special moment."
