Norwich went down 2-0 to West Ham on Wednesday evening a defeat that was their sixth successive one in the league. A lack of goals is clearly an issue with none scored in the last six and just eight for the season. The Canaries are bottom but are among a group of four teams seperated by just three points.
At home, the Canaries shipped five in their last fixture here against Arsenal but it was a much depleted squad and before that had conceded just four in four. Five of the eight the East Anglians have scored this season has come in front of their own fans. Two of the last three goals the hosts have scored here have come from defenders.
Everton come into the game on the back of a 3-2 FA Cup third round success over Hull which should ease a little of the pressure on Rafa Benitez. In the Premier league they sit 15th on 19 points only five of which have come in their last 11.
On the road, the Toffees are winless in seven losing five of these although the two draws came at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge. A lack of road goals is an issue with just four scored in their last seven away matches. In none of their last seven away matches have Everton scored in the opening 45 minutes.
Norwich vs Everton: Match Stats
A special multi bet on Everton to win the game and have the most corners is the best bet here. Norwich have lost each of their last six league games and lost the reverse 2-0 at Goodison Park. The corner aspect should also be possible for the Merseysiders as the Canaries only had two corners in the whole game against West Ham.
Anthony Gordon grabbed a brace in the league game (a 3-2 loss to Brighton) and the Everton man looks good value to score here. Jarrod Bowen showed in midweek that Norwich are vulnerable to runners from midfield. In addition, their defence is the worst in the league with 44 goals conceded.
