Everton hopes for a season sweep of Norwich City when its new-look side visits Carrow Road on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).
Everton has added Vitalii Mykolenko (Dynamo Kiev), Nathan Patterson (Rangers), and Anwar El Ghazi (Aston Villa, loan) in the January transfer window as Rafa Benitez tries to shake the Toffees out of a near season-long funk.
Since beating Norwich at Goodison Park on Sept. 25, Everton has won just once in 12 Premier League matches. The Toffees’ 19 points are eight clear of the bottom three.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will hopefully be back again, though he’s missed most of the season and Richarlison remains out for the Toffees.
Norwich is yet to bring in any new faces and needs results quickly, as the Premier League’s bottom four is the only thing keeping their hopes of rising from 20th alive.
The Canaries have lost six-straight Premier League matches and haven’t scored a goal in that stretch, a PL scoreless run sitting at 551 minutes. Norwich is a point back of Newcastle and Burnley, and three points back of Watford. Newcastle and Watford also play at 10am ET Saturday, opening the door for bottom-three tumult.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Norwich vs Everton.
