Everton v Norwich City: Live GameThread

Three points.

That should be the only acceptable outcome from this match. Norwich have awful form away from home and these are the teams we need to beat.

But we shouldn't get our hopes up high, because its not like our play has been exceptional recently. The Landon Donovan and Ross Barkley news has given us a false sense of optimism. I hope our play is better, due to the increase in morale, but this club is so unpredictable that we can't say anything definitively.

If we don't punch in three points today, we should be very afraid of the relegation battle in the second half of the season ; I don't see the club signing anyone significant (significant being the key word).

Either way, the crowd should be much more into it this match due to the recent positive news (about time). So as we always do, let's go out and make Goodison Park a living nightmare for Norwich City.

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Hibbert, Heitinga, Jagielka, Baines, Osman, Neville, Gueye, Cahill, Saha

Subs: Mucha, Bily, Drenthe, Straqualursi, Distin, Rodwell, McAleny

Norwich Starting XI: Ruddy, R Martin, Morrison, Whitbread, Crofts, Holt, Surman, Hoolahan, Fox, Tierney, Naughton

Subs: Rudd, Johnson, Jackson, Pilkington, Bennett, Barnett, Wilbraham
