EPL: NCFC vs EFC



Norwich 18:00 Everton

 

The Norwich hosts will host Everton at Carrow Road on Wednesday night knowing that time is running out for them to exit the relegation battle. The Canaries were defeated by Southampton in their first match after the Covid epidemic, while Everton returned with a goalless draw against Liverpool in the Mershireide derby.

Southampton's 3-0 home defeat on Friday night brought Norwich closer to the relentless relegation. All goals fell within 30 minutes of the Canaries' collapse, causing them to lose for the fifth time and only 1 victory in their last 7 Premier League appearances. Daniel Farke will be especially worried about the team's ability to score during that lousy period, Norwich only scored 1 goal in the last 6 Premier League matches, with the worst conversion rate. in the tournament and after the weekend, they are the lowest scorers in the tournament in general. Indeed, Norwich have only scored 2 or more goals in 6 matches in all seasons, one of which came in the first leg at Goodison Park when Farke's side won away. Norwich welcomed Marco Stiepermann back to training last week after a positive coronavirus test. However, Farke confirmed before the match against Southampton that Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann and Sam Byram will all miss the rest of the season.

Many things have changed at Everton since the arrival of world-famous coach Carlo Ancelotti in place of the dismissed Marco Silva, and they have begun to accelerate. The Toffees are still waiting for a victory in the Mershireide derby, even though they were close to the previous decade in a goalless draw on Goodison on Sunday. Everton have only become the third team in the Premier League to take Liverpool's points this season but the draw does not affect the Everton's chances of winning a European Cup even though the top teams, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Crystal Palace, win. Weekend win. The Toffees are still 12th in the standings and currently have not won in the last 4 matches nor kept clean sheets in the last 14 matches in the tournament. Everton also has physical concerns, with about six players expected to miss the match on Wednesday due to injury. Yerry Mina and Theo Walcott will not function again until next month, while Djibril Sidibe has missed the Mershireide derby and may not recover in time to attend and Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are still absent. term, while Fabian Delph is also expected to miss because of muscle problems.
