Everton face their first away game of the Premier League's resumption as they travel to bottom-of-the-table Norwich City.

Carlo Ancelotti's side go into the game in 12th position in the table 38 points, a late push for European football isn't out of the question if they can get on a good run.

Everton have the same squad to choose upon for the trip to Norfolk, although Fabian Delph and Yerry Mina are both closing in on a return and should be available in the next match.

Theo WalcottDjibril Sidibe and Cenk Tosun all remain unavailable.

As for the Canaries, Grant Hanley, Sam Byram and Christoph Zimmermann all remain sidelined and will miss the remainder of the season, although midfielder Marco Stiepermann is back available after missing the Southampton game due to a positive COVID-19 test.

  • Last time they met

The last time the two sides met, Norwich secured a shock victory at Goodison Park thanks to goals from Todd Cantwell and Dennis Srbeny.

Norwich have won two of the last seven meetings between the two sides with two draws and three Everton victories in that time.

What do the managers say?

 Farke spoke to the Norwich website ahead of the visit of the Toffees.

"It was a fantastic result for us at Everton and close to a perfect match, but we're full of respect for them. They have so much quality, but we proved we could beat them."

"No-one knows if we'd have won if we parked the bus. We were hoping for a perfect start, but we're ready to go again."

Ancelotti hopes to build on point against Liverpool

 “In the game [against Liverpool], the team was fantastic on the physical aspect, I was a bit surprised,” said Ancelotti on the Everton official club website.

“I am also sure it will be more difficult in the next game because we didn’t have a lot of time to rest.

“We have to be focused to repeat the same performance."

Overview

The two teams are separated by 17 points in the Premier League table but the Canaries will be doing everything within their powers to fight to stay in the English top flight.

Norwich are seven points adrift of safety so it is vital for them that they are able to secure the three points in this game.

The Toffees themselves could move up as high as tenth with a victory tomorrow evening.
