Norwich City v Everton

Toffees will try to carry on their undefeated home record without star Marouane Fellaini. This article was originally published on fanatix.

Last week’s 1-0 triumph over United was Norwich best performance of the year. The Canaries will be out to continue their recent Premier League resurgence when they travel to Everton on Saturday, trying to carry forward their five-match unbeaten run. But it won’t be easy against fifth-placed Everton, who still haven’t tasted defeat on their home turf with three wins and two draws in their five matches. Toffees will be missing star midfielder Marouane Fellaini, as he serves his one game suspension for picking up five yellow cards.

Head-to-head

Everton are unbeaten in their last six league meetings with Norwich,
Both of Norwich’s Premier League wins at Goodison Park came in 1993.
Both encounters last term ended in draws, included a 1-1 draw at Goodison as Leon Osman’s 81st-minute strike cancelled out Grant Holt’s opener.

    Everton

    The Toffees are unbeaten in five home league games this term, winning three of them.
    Everton have conceded 11 goals in their last seven games. Their last clean sheet came away to Swansea at the end of September.
    David Moyes’s men have scored 14 goals in the first half of Premier League matches this season, more than any other team.
    Tim Howard has played in 195 consecutive league matches, currently the longest such run of any player in the division.

      Norwich

      The Canaries are unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches, winning three successive home games and drawing both away fixtures. It’s their longest unbeaten run since going seven without defeat from January to February 1994.
      Chris Hughton’s men have five clean sheets in total this season – two more than they kept in the whole of last season (three) and equal-most in the division this season with Stoke and West Ham.

        CaughtOffside prediction: 2-1 to Everton. Norwich are looking sharp but Toffees are still hard to beat at home.
