Everton will be looking to get its Premiership campaign back on track when it hosts Norwich City at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Everton and Norwich City have met just three times in the past decade, with Everton winning all three of these encounters, including two away wins. The clubs’ most recent meeting was a friendly in 2010 which Everton won 4-2.
Norwich City’s last visit to Everton produced a 1-0 win for the home team.
Everton’s struggling to get it right this season. No sooner had the club seeming recovered from a poor run of form with two wins, when it crashed to consecutive defeats to Everton and Arsenal. The Toffees now have three losses and two wins to show for their efforts over the last five fixtures.
Goals are in short supply for Everton this season, with just 6 scored in the last five fixtures. Defence has done relatively well over the last five games, letting in 5 goals.
Norwich City’s recent record looks similar to that of Everton with three losses and two wins. However, Norwich comes into the game with more momentum after an impressive 4-2 win against Newcastle United on the weekend.
Norwich City is scoring at a healthy rate, with 10 goals put away in the past five matches. Defence has been the club’s undoing with 13 goals conceded during this period, an no clean sheets.
The result of this match will depend on Everton’s ability to exploit the weak Norwich City defence. If Everton can maintain composure in the back and get a few on the board, the club should be able to win this match.
Our feeling is that Everton will edge this match. However, our money is going on the over/under goals market where you can get good value on over 2.75 goals being scored in this fixture – not a bad option for a match with two defences that have conceded 18 goals between themselves in the last five matches.
