Norwich are rock bottom of the Premier League table and still in search of their first points

Norwich City have suffered another disastrous start to a Premier League campaign. Daniel Farke’s side are yet to put a point on the board and sit bottom of the table after five games as a result.

The Canaries’ defeat to Watford last weekend showed that they are lagging behind even those who they finished above in the Championship last season.

It’s all well and good needing some time to adjust to the top flight, but sooner or later they are going to need to start picking up points.

Everton will have looked like a daunting opposition seven days ago. But after Rafa Benitez’s side were beaten by Aston Villa and then Queens Park Rangers in the Carabao Cup, it suddenly looks a little more winnable for a struggling Norwich team.

Here’s all you need to know about their upcoming match.

When is it?

The match will kick off at 3pm on Saturday, 25 September at Goodison Park.

Where can I watch?

The fixture is unavailable to watch in the UK but highlights of the game will be shown on Match of the Day. The programme will air at 10.30pm BST on BBC One.

Team news

Everton still have several absentees heading into this one. Keeper Jordan Pickford does return from a shoulder injury, but Seamus Coleman misses out, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is absent, and Richarlison is unavailable.

Norwich have reported no fresh injuries.

Confirmed line-ups

EVE - Pickford, Digne, Keane, Mina, Godfrey, Iwobi, Allan, Doucoure, Townsend, Gray, Rondon

NOR - Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Kabak, Williams, Gibson, Lees-Melou, McLean, Normann, Sargent, Pukki.


Everton - 8/15

Draw - 14/5

Norwich - 5/1


Everton will have been brought back down to earth a little following last weekend’s second half drubbing at the hands of Aston Villa. Rafa Benitez will be looking for a reaction from his players and he couldn’t really wish for a better fixture to do so. 3-0 Everton.
