Everton FC v Norwich City
Goodison Park
Saturday 11th January 15:00
Premier League Match 21


Everton's last 5 domestic matches 2013/2014:

Swansea 1-2 Everton (Coleman, Barkley)
Everton 0-1 Sunderland
Everton 2-1 Southampton (Coleman, Lukaku)
Stoke 1-1 Everton (Baines Pen)
Everton 4-0 QPR - FA Cup (Barkley, Jelavic x2, Coleman)


Norwich's last 5 domestic matches 2013/2014:

Sunderland 0-0 Norwich
Norwich 1-2 Fulham (Hooper)
Norwich 0-1 Manchester United
Crystal Palace 1-1 Norwich (Johnson)
Norwich 1-1 Fulham - FA Cup (Snodgrass)

Everton

Everton are coming off a convincing 4-0 in the 3rd round of the FA Cup as Queens Park Rangers were dismantled with ease. The game saw Nikica Jelavic score his first goal in nine months, since he secured a 2-0 victory with a late goal against Manchester City in May. It has also taken him just 4 days into the New Year to equal his goal tally of 2013 with his brace against QPR.


Whilst Romelu Lukaku has dropped in form, it has meant other players have had to handle the responsibility of scoring in recent weeks. Seamus Coleman in particular has the rose to the challenge amongst others to show that Everton can cope even when their top scorer isn't firing on all cylinders. Everton's opponents for the day can't say the same as they've only managed 12 goals excluding top scorer Gary Hooper compared to the 23 Everton have scored.

Possible Line-Ups


Norwich

Norwich City are currently on a run of 5 matches without victory in the premier league and go into this match having drawn their FA Cup match against Fulham at the weekend. They are on a run of 3 matches without defeat on the road currently having beaten West Brom and gone away with a point from Sunderland and Crystal Palace in recent weeks. However they lost to Liverpool 5-1 in their last trip to a team in the top half.


Norwich are amongst the worse of the bottom half teams when it comes to playing teams in the top half. However they did manage 1 of their 4 points with a draw against the toffees on the opening day of the season whilst their only victory came at home to Southampton early in the season. Their goal difference is perhaps misleading after shipping 12 goals at Anfield and the Ethiad Stadium combined.

Stats and Injuries


Phil Jagielka, Gerard Deulofeu, Arouna Kone and Darron Gibson are all sure to miss this match through injury whilst Leighton Baines was seen on crutches against QPR at Goodison Park and may miss out. Sylvain Distin is due to return.

Norwich have a whole host of injuries as Alexander Tettey, Anthony Pilkington and Elliott Bennett are going to miss out through injury. Jonny Howson, Michael Turner and Wes Hoolahan are also doubts. Bradley Johnson and Sebastian Bassong are due to return. Leroy Fer may or may not miss out through suspension.

I thought Baines wasn't seen on crutches after all?

I'm not sure if Fer is suspended or not for this and the suspensions list on the TheFA website is down although most things say he's available.

He got sent off for 2 yellow cards against Crystal Palace which saw him suspended for the cup game against Fulham. However, as you may or may not remember, he carried over a suspension from the Netherlands on the opening day of the season and miss our match at Norwich. If you get suspended for a second time then usually the player gets another match added to the length of the ban. However he committed the first offence playing in Holland so it's a bit of a grey area.

5 games without a victory - whilst where flying. Is it me or can anyone see us having a bit of an 'off' day? It will happen eventually and Norwich aren't pushovers at times.

I'll still go for 1-0 though. Would you keep the same team as the QPR game as well?

Was it really an off day? The manager himself felt we played well, just didnt hit the onion bag when we needed to...

 Tbh, Thomas, I'm not sure if we have an 'off day' in us. This current Everton is purring like a well-oiled pussy of the Jaguar variety - it's currently a joy to watch. Sunderland was an 'odd spanner'.

Yeah i think off days are definitely like the sunderland game, and the spurs game and stoke 1st half, i think thats the kind of off day we will be having under martinez. Still playing ok, just not to our ability and not scoring!
I have to return some videotapes.

Cool. When I was going the game an off day was when we where awful, got beat 7-0 and you had a long journey home. Benfica springs to mind.

Kevin Friend is the referee. Done the Tottenham games this season and failed to give a blatant penalty to both sides IIRC
