Match Preview: Everton v Norwich City

22 November 2019

Norwich City travel to Goodison Park this weekend for their first Premier League meeting with Everton in over three years.

Our Match Preview includes insight from a local journalist to discuss the opposition in detail, an overview of this fixture’s history, and a look at who will be the man in the middle.

There are also details for City fans travelling to Merseyside, including security information, as well as a guide on how to follow the action for those who aren’t at the ground.

The opposition

Everton had a troubled start to their 2019/20 season but have begun to pick up some good results in recent weeks.

Given the misleading nature of the current Premier League standings, the Toffees are 15th in the division ahead of this weekend’s game, despite being just three points behind Sheffield United in fifth.

Form looked promising enough at the start of the season for Marco Silva’s side, who picked up four points from the first possible six and kept two clean sheets in those games against Crystal Palace and Watford.

However, defeats to Aston Villa, AFC Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Manchester City and Burnley made up five of the following six league results, a 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers the one saving grace in that period.

Since that defeat at Turf Moor, they’ve only lost once in five games in all competitions – 3-2 at Brighton & Hove Albion. West Ham United and Southampton were both defeated by Everton in the top-flight, while Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 1-1 draw.

A good cup run has also been slowly boiling, with victories against Lincoln City, Sheffield Wednesday and Watford seeing the Toffees into the Carabao Cup quarter finals against Leicester City in December.

Last time they met, Alex Neil’s Canaries salvaged a 2-0 League Cup win at Goodison Park in 2016 thanks to goals from Steven Naismith and Josh Murphy.

Ref watch

Anthony Taylor will be the man in the middle for Saturday afternoon’s fixture. Taylor has overseen 11 Premier League games, three Champions League games and three European Championship qualifiers so far this season, handing out 86 yellow cards and three red cards across those matches.

The last time he officiated a Norwich game was for a 1-0 Premier League defeat at West Bromwich Albion in March 2016.

For this weekend’s fixture, his assistants will be Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn, David Webb the fourth official. Darren England and Scott Ledger will be overseeing VAR.

Match Reports

Three points and a clean sheet! City beat Everton 2-0

23 November 2019

Norwich City's long-awaited third Premier League win came by way of a 2-0 victory against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Following a first half of few chances, Todd Cantwell gave the Canaries the lead in the 54th minute, slotting cooly into the bottom right corner having been played in on goal by Teemu Pukki.

A nervous end to the game was wrapped up nicely when Dennis Srbeny doubled City's lead in stoppage time, keeping the Norwich fans in full voice and giving them three points to take on the 374 miles back to Norfolk.

The headline team news saw fit-again Christoph Zimmermann drafted straight back into the starting XI. Sam Byram replaced the injured Jamal Lewis at left-back, whilst Todd Cantwell replaced Emiliano Buendia, who was on the bench for the first time in the current league campaign.

City started the game well, controlling much of the early possession as the home crowd became increasingly nervy.

The game’s first attempt on goal of any significance came when Onel Hernandez slalomed around a couple of blue shirts in the right channel before seeing a shot well held by Jordan Pickford.

Up the other end Cenk Tosun dragged a low effort across the face of goal after and the ball had ricocheted his way following a cross from the right flank.

It took until the half-hour mark for the game’s first clear-cut chance.

A clever slide-rule pass from McLean released Hernandez, who accelerated away from Yerry Mina only to see a low shot repelled by a strong right glove of Pickford.

With the wind in their sails City ended the half on top.

On 40 minutes Cantwell arrived at the back post to meet Hernandez’s cross, before controlling and seeing a shot deflect onto a covering Schneiderlin and over the bar.

Byram was next to go close, firing over after combining with Hernandez down the left side.

Immediately after the restart City were forced to weather a ten-minute period of Everton pressure.

But Daniel Farke’s hit back in sensational fashion to open the scoring on 55 minutes.

Teemu Pukki superbly held the ball up 30 yards from goal, attracting the attentions of Everton’s central defensive duo. After bundling through a couple of tackles the Finland international poked the ball into the path of Cantwell, who composed himself before coolly finishing into the bottom corner.

Buoyed by the opener, Norwich kept their foot on the gas and went in search of the second, though an unmarked Byram could only head wide from six yards out following a set piece routine.

Marco Silva rang the changes for the home side and despite plenty of huff and puff, struggled to cause any major problems for a City backline expertly marshalled by Zimmermann and Ben Godfrey until minute 75.

And it was Tim Krul who came to the rescue, with two smart saves inside the space of a hectic three-minute period.

Gylfi Sigurdsson was first denied following sub Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s clever knock-down before the Dutch ‘keeper was alert to keep out Cenk Tosun’s effort from the right channel.

Thankfully for City, the introduction of Dennis Srbeny paid dividends in stoppage time, the striker doubling Norwich's lead with a strong and calm finish into the bottom left corner.
