David Moyes Everton

Toffees take on the Canaries at Carrow Road.

Check in to Norwich City vs Everton

Preview

Everton need a win to keep the pressure on Arsenal above them and restore their six-point lead on rivals Liverpool, but a trip to Carrow Road is no easy task. Norwich have been beaten on their own turf by just three teams in the Premier League this season, boasting victories over Arsenal and Manchester United in that run, and the forecasted snow will only make the visit more arduous. Norwich have captain Grant Holt back from injury, while David Moyes needs Nikica Jelavic to rediscover last season’s form, with Victor Anichebe a doubt.

STAT-ATTACK

Head-to-head

The two clubs have drawn each of their last three league encounters. Five of their previous 11 Premier League meetings have ended all-square (45%).

Everton’s only win at Carrow Road in their last nine visits, spanning 23 years, is their 3-2 triumph in 2004.

Norwich are without a win in their last seven league games against the Merseysiders. Their last win was a 3-0 home victory against Mike Walker’s Everton in March 1994. Both of Norwich’s only other two Premier League wins against the
Toffees came when Walker was the Canaries’ boss.

Norwich

The Canaries are winless in their last nine Premier League games (D4, L5). They have drawn four of their last five matches.

Wes Hoolahan’s goal in the 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham at the end of January is the only time Norwich have scored in their last five Premier League matches.

Norwich have managed an unrivalled five Premier League goalless draws, with three coming in the last five games.

All six of City’s league wins this campaign have been by the odd goal.

Everton

The Toffees have drawn seven of 14 matches against sides currently in the bottom half of the table, although they have suffered only one defeat (2-1 at Reading).

Having scored in 18 consecutive games, Everton have now failed to score in three of their last five league games.

Marouane Fellaini has managed more headers on target (13) than any other player in the Premier League this season.

Everton have used fewer players (22) than any other side in the Premier League this season.
