All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Norwich City v Everton are shown below including the latest game odds.
Norwich City will be wanting a better result here after the 2-0 Premier League defeat in their last game at the hands of West Ham United.
In that match, Norwich City had 38% possession and 7 shots on goal with 3 on target. On the other side, West Ham United got 13 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Jarrod Bowen (42', 83') was the scorer for West Ham United.
Norwich City have been quite ineffective in attack of late. Their goals record stands at just 1 against opposition teams over the course of their previous six matches. In those games, Norwich City have also seen the number of goals scored against them total 13. Putting that to one side, time will tell if the trend will be replicated in this upcoming match.
Analysis of their past results shows that Norwich City:
- have not emerged victorious against Everton in their previous 2 league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 4 league matches. Things will have to change soon.
Everton come into this meeting following on from a 2-3 FA Cup win against Hull City in their last outing.
In that match, Everton had 47% possession and 21 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. For Everton, the goalscorers were Demarai Gray (21'), André Gomes (31') and Andros Townsend (99'). For their opponents, Hull City got 17 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. Tyler Smith (1') and Ryan Longman (71') scored for Hull City. The match went to extra time and was won by Everton.
Everton have been a threat going forward leading up to this encounter, scoring 10 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Rafael Benítez will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Everton can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same clashes.
Coming into this meeting, Everton have not been beaten by Norwich City in games played away from home for the previous 3 league games.

We’re inclined to think that Norwich City will need things to go their way to score against this Everton side who we think will just have the edge.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning score for Everton at full-time.
Should be a close one.
