Appearing to find some much-needed stability and seeing Saturday as a golden opportunity to extend on that run, Everton will welcome a struggling Norwich to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.
Snatching a dramatic late winner at St. Mary’s prior to the international break, the Toffees have finally begun to distance themselves from the drop zone and Marco Silva’s men are now enjoying a three-match unbeaten run against Premier League opposition.
On the flip side, while Everton might be a team on the rise, Norwich still find themselves at the heart of an extended rut and are they are almost universally seen to be the leading contender to book an immediate Championship return next summer.
With Everton landing a 3-0 victory the last time they faced off against the Canneries back in 2016, the Blues have landed back-to-back victories over Norwich at Goodison and a similar outcome can be found at 2/5 with Coral.
Everton on the rise?
Pulling off another late comeback to snatch three points at St. Mary’s a fortnight ago, Everton will still be boosted after snatching another dramatic point off of Tottenham earlier in the month.
With an EFL Cup quarter-final to look forward to next month, the Blues have lost just one of their previous four Premier League matchups and the pressure appears to be releasing off of Marco Silva’s shoulders.
Now holding a six-point buffer over the drop zone after their sluggish start to the 2019/2020 campaign, there is no doubt that fans around Goodison Park have their sights firmly set on mounting a charge for the top half of the table.
One man who should play a vital part in Silva’s plans this weekend is Brazilian international, Richarlison.
Bagging two goals in his last three matches across all formats and also scoring the winner at St. Mary’s a fortnight ago, you might be interested to know that the former Watford winger can be found at 6/5 with 888sport to once again find the net this weekend.
Norwich continue to struggle
Watching fellow relegation scrappers Watford pick up a 2-0 win at Carrow Road a fortnight ago, a fixture that was seen to be a November six-pointer, Daniel Farke’s men now find themselves sat rock-bottom of the standings.
Already sat four points adrift of safety, Norwich are remarkably pencilled in as low as 1/4 with 888sport to be hit with an immediate Championship return next summer.
After electing to spend just £1.1million on new arrivals over the summer, a huge part of Norwich’s continued struggles have come down to some glaring issues at the back.
With only Southampton holding a worse defensive record than the East Anglia outfit, the former Borussia Dortmund coach has seen his side ship two or more goals in all bar two of their 12 Premier League appearances.
You might be interested to know that the Canneries can be found at 3/5 with Paddy Power to once again ship over 1.5 goals this weekend.
