Team News

  • David Moyes has a few problems in midfield ahead of the game with Norwich, with Fellaini suspended and Neville sidelined for at least 6 weeks.
  • Thomas Hitzlsperger should continue to partner Osman, with the game likely to come too soon for Gibson and Mirallas, so Oviedo could earn a first start on the wing.
  • Sylvain Distin will hope to replace Johnny Heitinga after defeat last weekend, though the Dutchman could also be an option to move into a defensive midfield position, forcing Osman wider.
  • With no fresh injury concerns there is no doubt that Hughton will stick with the same XI that managed a historic victory over United last time out.
  • With Russell Martin likely to remain sidelined, Steven Whittaker will continue at right-back while fellow new signing Alexander Tettey will keep his place in midfield.
  • Grant Holt will continue to lead the line despite failing to score in 4 successive games, with Steve Morison waiting in the wings.

Prediction

  • While Everton have won just 1 of their last 6 games, losing to Reading last time out, Norwich are on a 5-match unbeaten run which includes victories over Arsenal and United.
  • However, the Toffees are yet to lose at home and face a Norwich side yet to win away, so Moyes' side will remain favourites despite a number of missing players, most notably Marouane Fellaini.
  • Chris Hughton would be happy to pick up a point at Goodison Park and look to stretch an excellent defensive record having conceded just once in 5 games, so will tell his side to pick their chances wisely on the counter.

  • Another great display by Baines, too bad Fellaini wasn't there to make the difference today.
