" Preview of the match: Norwich City v Everton

Hosting Norwich City Everton on Carrow Road on Wednesday night (6pm KO), the Canaries despair by three points.

Our Match Preview takes a closer look at the opposition, as well as game officials, and provides information on how you can follow the action live.

The opposition

The Toffees enter this with less recovery time than Norwich, having held Merseyside rivals Liverpool in a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday night.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton could be a very different team than the Canaries beat 2-0 in November, Todd Cantwell and Dennis Srbeny on the score sheet against Marco Silva’s team that day.

After a 5-2 loss to Liverpool in early December, Everton parted ways with Silva, Duncan Ferguson took over as interim manager for three games in all competitions until the appointment of Ancelotti.

Everton became crucially harder to beat under Ancelotti, and is now 12th in the Premier League at the time of this writing.
