Norwich City vs. Everton: Lineups

Clive Brunskill

Everton are healthy and ready to go as Roberto Martinez makes his league debut in charge of the Toffees. They'll face a tough test against Norwich.

Roberto Martinez makes his official debut as the new manager of Everton, putting out a first choice lineup in a new look formation for the Toffees. There's no three defender setup as was the norm at Wigan, but it's still more dynamic that David Moyes' hyper-conservative 4-4-1-1.

Nikica Jelavić starts up front after having a tremendous preseason as he looks to rebound from a disappointing 2012-13 season. Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines both start as it appears they may stick around after a great deal of speculation one or both could leave. The transfer window is still open though.

Norwich and Chris Hughton will be looking to build on their 11th place finish last season. New signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel makes his debut for the club after joining from Sporting Lisbon where he was a prolific goal scorer.

Norwich City starting lineup (4-4-1-1): John Ruddy; Steven Whittaker, Michael Turner, Russell Martin, Garrido; Elliot Bennett, Jonny Howson, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond; Wes Hoolahan; Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Everton starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; Seamus Coleman, Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines; Marouane Fellaini, Leon Osman; Kevin MirallasRoss Barkley, Steven Pienaar; Nikica Jelavić.
