Norwich City vs Everton betting tips, predictions and match preview

Norwich City are in desperate need of three points against Everton on Wednesday night to keep their diminishing survival hopes alive.

Norwich City’s hopes of surviving in the Premier League this season appear to be all but over. Although boss Daniel Farke hasn’t yet given up hope, many supporters will have following Friday’s 0-3 home defeat to Southampton, leaving the Canaries six points from safety with just eight league games remaining.

The East Anglian outfit have now lost 19 matches this season and with time running out, they need to start picking up points if they’re to put pressure on the likes of West Ham United and Watford, starting with this Wednesday night home fixture against Everton

After a goalless draw with city rivals Liverpool on Sunday, the Toffees sit in 12th place in the table with little to play for in these final eight fixtures. Having put in a dogged display in the Merseyside Derby however, boss Carlo Ancelotti will be keen to see his team show signs of progress across the remaining matches.

Although that draw with the Reds can only be seen as a positive given their rivals’ record this season, it does mean that Everton have now gone four Premier League games without a win – but they are odds-on to put an end to that run with this trip to Carrow Road.

Norwich City vs Everton Predictions

Squawka Stat: Norwich City have failed to score in 43% of their Premier League matches this season – the joint-highest percentage in the division.

Everton produced a determined, stoic display in drawing 0-0 with local rivals and champions elect Liverpool on Sunday evening. The Toffees haven’t been at their best defensively this season, but rarely looked like conceding against the Premier League’s runaway leaders and that will give boss Carlo Ancelotti renewed confidence in the likes of Mason Holgate and Jordan Pickford going into the remaining fixtures this season.

Norwich have won plaudits for their brave, attacking displays at times this season but that defeat to the Saints over the weekend means they’ve now scored only one goal in their last six Premier League outings – so we expect them to struggle going forward here if Everton are able to replicate their defensive solidity from Sunday evening.

The visitors are the stronger team on paper and with home advantage seemingly counting for less across Europe in these behind closed doors games, we expect the Toffees to earn three points and keep another clean sheet in the process against the Premier League’s most out-of-form attack.

Squawka Bet Tip: Away win to nil @ 23/10 with Ruby Bet – odds correct at the time of writing

Squawka Stat: Andre Gomes has averaged 40.8 passes per 90 minutes for Everton this season. 

After the injury he sustained against Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the season, Andre Gomes has struggled for consistency and form at the heart of the Everton midfield this season and hasn’t been able to control the tempo of matches as often as one might expect over the course of the campaign.

A player that is known for his passing ability, it’s perhaps a shame for the Blues that they haven’t been able to get the best out of the Portuguese international this season and he averages just 40.8 passes per game, with much of their play instead going through the likes of Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne in the full-back areas.

Gomes played in his 12th Premier League match of the season against Liverpool on Sunday and although his side were never likely to dominate possession against their cross-town rivals, Gomes managed a paltry 16 passes in 90 minutes in that game, so we’d be surprised if he managed 49 or more at Carrow Road on Tuesday evening.

Squawka Bet Tip: Andre Gomes to make fewer than 48.5 passes @ 5/6 with bet365 – odds correct at the time of writing.

Everton’s passing network shows that they don’t rely on the centre of midfield to dominate possession as much as other Premier League teams do.
