It’s been something of a rocky road for Everton this season. David Moyes’s men had their traditional slow start to the season and after a small recovery, back-to-back defeats have again hampered their progress in the Premier League. The Toffees currently sit in 12th position in the Premier League table, which is two places behind their opponents at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Newly promoted Norwich City have had a very encouraging start to the season. The Canaries have just snuck into the top half after a 4-2 win against Newcastle at Carrow Road, and Paul Lambert’s men have definitely shown that they’re no pushover in the top division. Norwich have just one away win to their name, a 2-1 victory against Bolton back in September, but will be full of confidence heading to Goodison.
Heading into this week’s game, unsurprisingly as the home team, Everton are strong favourites, priced at 4/7*. The Toffees are also 10/1* to win 3-1, while for Everton to be leading at half-time and at full-time is 4/3*.
What about our market of the week? Well, with Norwich’s free-scoring nature and their somewhat leaky defence, there are likely to be goals in the game. It’s evens* for there to be more than 2.5 goals in the game, which is pretty likely.
