Norwich City vs Everton: prediction for the English Premier League match
In the last season, Norwich City won the Championship and thus returned to the Premier League, but so far they are having a difficult time in the elite. Dean Smith's charges have earned 10 points from two victories and four draws, and with these results, they sit bottom of the Premier League table.
The Canaries are on a string of six defeats. In the last three matches, they lost to Arsenal (0:5), Crystal Palace (0:3), and West Ham (0:2).
In the League Cup, Norwich reached the Round of 32 where they lost to Liverpool, and in the FA Cup they have defeated Charlton (1:0) and thus advanced to the fourth round of the tournament.
Omobamidele, Normann, Rupp, Zimmermann, Gilmour and Cantwell have been ruled out of this fixture.
Everton kicked off their FA Cup campaign with a hard-fought victory over Hull City (3:2 ET). In the Premier League, the Toffees played 18 matches and celebrated success in five of them. Four games ended in draws. Rafael Benitez's team is currently 15th in the log with 19 points to their name.
A lot more was expected from Everton, who delivered a decent performance in the last season. During the winter transfer window, Everton bought Vitaliy Mykolenko (23,5 mln) and Nathan Patterson(14 mln) in attempt to strengthen their team.
Mina and Richarlison are unavailable for the visitors in the upcoming game.
This bet won in 3 of the last 5 games of the hosts.
Goals were scored in both halves in 3 of the last 5 games of the visitors.
