It is perhaps no surprise that Everton are averaging one goal per game at the moment, with the Toffees allowing Jermaine Beckford and Mikel Arteta to leave in the summer for a combined fee of £14 million.

David Moyes has once again had to operate in the loan market to get his team ticking, although the Scot must be frustrated that Tim Cahill is without a goal this term considering that the Australian generally reaches double figures in a season.

Everton are hovering a little too close to the relegation zone for comfort right now and win would be greatly welcomed by the Goodison Park faithful, with William Hill (£25 free bets) offering a best price 13/20 that the Merseyside claim their third home win of the season.

They welcome a Norwich side that have already taken a point at Anfield this term and the Canaries will be full of confidence after claiming a maximum haul against Newcastle last weekend, something which has lifted them to 10th in the Premier League.

Paul Lambert’s team look to have adjusted well to life in the top flight despite a double promotion in the past two seasons although they have conceded eight goals in their past two away matches and will be looking to keep things tighter on Saturday.

Bet365 (£200 free betting) offer an eye-catching 5/1 that the visitors follow in the recent footsteps of Stoke City by landing a pre-Christmas bonus of three points, with Steve Morison and Grant Holt both among the goals last weekend.
