Recent respective form guides
Everton's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Toffees have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
Norwich City's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Canaries have hit 7 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Everton see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 16 points from their 14 games played so far,
Norwich City's 19 points from 15 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
