Sports Mole previews Saturday's Premier League clash between Everton and Norwich City, including predictions, team news and predicted lineups.

Everton welcome Norwich City to Goodison Park on Saturday with both teams looking to hit the ground running after the international break.

Marco Silva's Toffees are currently 15th in the table, five places and seven points ahead of their East Anglian opponents.


Match preview


Although Silva remains under pressure, his Everton side have won two of their last four in the league and they are unbeaten in three games across all competitions.

Key to extending that run to four games will be the battle between Norwich right-back Max Aarons and Brazilian winger Richarlison, who scored last time out against Southampton.

The former Watford player's pace and finishing will be crucial, as will his ability to get in behind and link play with the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Historically, this fixture has been a good one for the Toffees, who have tasted defeat just once in their last 12 meetings with the Canaries.


Daniel Farke is another manager under pressure as Norwich's positive start has given way to a dismal run of form that has seen them lose four of their last five league games.

Norwich, who have drawn a blank in their four away matches and last won in mid-September, have continually been undone by their leaky defence, which has conceded at least twice in 10 Premier League games this season.

The Canaries do have talent in the attacking areas but they have continually been overrun in midfield, leading to them getting trapped in their own half for long periods.

Key to Farke's men getting something from Saturday's match will be Finnish striker Teemu Pukki. The former Celtic man, who netted three times for his country during the recent international break, has not scored in the league since netting six in his first five matches.

Pukki's movement and footballing intelligence will always get him opportunities, and Norwich will be hoping that his goalscoring exploits in the last week will have boosted his confidence.

Team News


Everton remain without long-term absentees Cuco Martina, Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, while Cenk Tosun, Fabian Delph and Bernard are doubts for Saturday's match.

In their absence, Tom Davies is likely to continue alongside Morgan Schneiderlin at the base of the Toffees' midfield, while Calvert-Lewin is expected to start up front.

Theo Walcott started against Southampton but Silva may opt for former Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi instead on the right-hand side.

Norwich's lengthy injury list has reduced somewhat but they are still unable to call on Timm Klose, Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann, Josip Drmic and Jamal Lewis.

Without Lewis, Sam Byram is the obvious choice to start at left-back, while Farke will have to decide whether to recall young winger Todd Cantwell to the starting lineup.

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Sidibe, Mina, Keane, Digne; Davies, Schneiderlin; Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

Norwich City possible starting lineup:
Krul; Aarons, Amadou, Godfrey, Byram; Vrancic, McLean; Cantwell, Stiepermann, Buendia; Pukki



We say: Everton 3-1 Norwich City

Norwich's recent form hardly makes for pleasant reading, and while there is a good chance that Teemu Pukki gets back among the goals, Everton should have more than enough quality to make it four unbeaten in all competitions.
