Grant to further Holt Toffees

Norwich have had no problem finding the back of the net

Saturday afternoon brings together Everton and Norwich in a game that could be a fairly entertaining encounter. David Moyes finds his team in 12th position, yet only four points above the relegation zone. As for Paul Lambert, he is in dreamland as the Canaries are really settling into life in the Premier League. They are comfortable in mid-table, and their style of play is gaining fans by the week.

The Toffees have had limited success at home, having only won twice and already losing four out of their seven fixtures at Goodison. More of a concern is their lack of goals, scoring only seven goals all season at home. Only QPR, with six, have netted fewer.

Norwich, on the other hand, have had no problem finding the back of the net, and should go to Merseyside full of confidence and in hope of getting a result given Everton’s sluggish start to this league campaign. Like Blackpool last season, Norwich’s Achilles heel is their back-line; they are still to keep a clean sheet and that could prove vital for snatching vital away points when goals are at premium.

Therefore, this could be quite a high-scoring game, with the result very open for debate. The obvious favourite is Everton, best-priced at 4/6 with Blue Square. Joint top-scorers for Norwich are Grant Holt and Steve Morison on six goals, and they present value to score at anytime in the 90 minutes. For Holt, 10/3 is available with bet365 and Morison is 14/5 with Unibet. If you were to wager on both of these, just one coming up would be worth your while.

Regarding the result, I like the draw with Norwich looking to carry on their excellent form. An open game could produce over 2.5 goals (4/5 with Ladbrokes) and a score of 2-2 could be the bet, Sky Bet offering 16/1 for that eventuality.

Recommended Bet:

Both teams to score @ 4/5 with Betfred

Over 2.5 goals @ 4/5 with Ladbrokes
