Everton vs. Norwich City: Preview and TV schedule

Chris Brunskill

Everton will look to get back to winning ways against a struggling Norwich on Saturday.

Everton have only lost once at Goodison Park in the Premier League this season, and should extend their impressive home run against a struggling Norwich City this weekend. The Toffees are looking to bounce back from a disappointing draw away at Stoke City in their last league game, and could leapfrog Merseyside rivals Liverpool into a Champions League spot with a win.

Norwich are currently down in 15th place, only three points clear of the relegation zone and winless in their last five league games. Given that they've only picked up two league wins away from Carrow Road all season, they'll no doubt struggle to pick up their first victory away at Everton since 1993.

However, the Toffees still have an injury-ravaged defence, with John Stones and Antolín Alcaraz likely to continue filling in at centre-back for the absent Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin. However, Leighton Baines and Ross Barkley could return from their respective problems. As for Norwich, Elliott Bennett, Alexander Tettey and Anthony Pilkington are all out, and could be joined on the sidelines by a couple of other doubtfuls.
