Marking their return in some style and picking up a deserved point against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby over the weekend, Everton will be hoping to find a route back into the top-half when they travel to Norwich on Wednesday evening.
With many feeling that they were extremely unlucky not to grab maximum points off of their cross-town rivals on Sunday night, the Blues are now a squad who are desperate to draw a line under their four-match Premier League winless run.
On the flip side, hit with what was a 3-0 drumming against Southampton on their return to action, Norwich are quickly spiralling towards an immediate championship return and still find themselves sat rock-bottom of the standings.
However, in a boost for Wednesday’s hosts, picking up a shock 2-0 win against then Everton boss Marco Silva earlier in the season, Norwich have now picked up back-to-back victories against the Toffees and a similar home victory in midweek can be found priced at 14/5 with Paddy Power.
Where next for Norwich?
Completely blown away by Southampton in the second half on their return to action last week, Norwich eventually left Carrow Road on the wrong end of a 3-0 drumming and Canneries already have one foot back in the Championship.
Still sat five points adrift at the foot of the table, there is no doubt that Head Coach Daniel Farke will have a growing headache over his side’s continued issues in the final third.
While Wednesday’s hosts might have an FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United fast approaching, Norwich once again drew a blank on Friday evening and have now managed to land just a single Premier League strike in their last six matchups on the spin.
With leading marksman Teemu Pukki drastically struggling to match the level he set at the start of the season, the relegation scrappers have managed to score just a single top-flight goal in East Anglia in over 300 minutes of action.
Holding the worst attacking record in the division and in the midst of their creative rut since making their Premier League return last summer, Norwich can be found priced at 7/4 with Ladbrokes to draw another blank in midweek.
Toffees deserved more
Although Everton might have managed to take a point off of their bitter-rivals on Sunday, there is no doubt that fans around the blue half of Merseyside would have been disappointed to have not left Goodison with maximum points.
Creating a string of late chances against champions-elect Liverpool on their return to action, new boss Carlos Ancelotti might even be smelling what would be a shock late European charge.
If Everton are to pick up their first Premier League victory since February 8th, then the former Napoli boss will be hoping for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to lead their charge in East Anglia.
Causing Liverpool a string of issues over the weekend, the 23-year-old has really started to shine since Ancelotti took charge and has been linked with a potential call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
With 15 goals to his name this season and already finding the net against the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea this year, you might be interested to know that Calvert-Lewin can be found priced at 13/10 with William Hill to grab his first post-lockdown goal at Carrow Road in midweek.
