Match Preview: Norwich City v Everton

23 June 2020

Norwich City host Everton at Carrow Road on Wednesday evening (6pm KO), the Canaries desperate for three points.

Our Match Preview takes a closer look at the opposition as well as the game’s officials and provides information on how you can follow the action live.

The opposition

The Toffees go into this one with less recovery time than Norwich, having held Merseyside rivals Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday night.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton could be a very different side to the one the Canaries beat 2-0 back in November, Todd Cantwell and Dennis Srbeny on the score sheet against Marco Silva’s outfit that day.

After a 5-2 defeat to Liverpool in early December, Everton parted ways with Silva, Duncan Ferguson taking over as caretaker manager for three games in all competitions until Ancelotti’s appointment.

Everton crucially became more difficult to beat under Ancelotti, and now sit twelfth in the Premier League at the time of writing.

Head-to-head

There have been 60 meetings between Norwich and Everton in all competitions since 1972 – 18 Norwich wins, 18 draws, and 24 Everton wins.

Last time we played the Toffees at Carrow Road, the Premier League game ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Wes Hoolahan. Take our quiz to see if you can name the City squad from that game!

Everton haven’t beaten City at Carrow Road since October 2004.

Ref watch

Andy Madley will see over Wednesday’s fixture, with Jonathon Moss and Scott Ledger in charge of VAR. Marc Perry and Eddie Smart are Madley’s assistants, with John Brooks the fourth official.

Madley has officiated 20 games in all competitions this season, handing out 72 yellow cards and six red cards.

The last time he was the referee for a Norwich game was our 1-1 draw away to Leicester City in December.
