What They Say

Norwich City manger Paul Lambert on striker Grant Holt: "I think that he can be misconstrued as an old-fashioned No 9. He's got ability to play the game. His career has been up and down, in the lower reaches. I think the last three years has been an incredible high for him, as it has for a number of lads. He's getting the rewards for that hard work, effort, graft, disappointments, knocks - all that" 

Everton defender Phil Jagielka: "A lot of bookies and others might have expected [Norwich] to struggle but they’ve been flying. Their defensive record speaks for itself. They’ve conceded a few goals over the course of the season as everyone does, but nobody has had an easy game against them."

Last Meeting (new)

December 17, 2011. Everton 1-1 Norwich. David Moyes’ men had to come from behind and settle for a solitary point despite dominating proceedings at Goodison Park. Grant Holt gave the visitors a 27th-minute lead with a neat turn and finish but, despite carving out numerous efforts on goal, it took until 10 minutes from time for the hosts to level through Leon Osman. The midfielder got a touch on an effort from Royston Drenthe to divert the ball under Canaries goalkeeper John Ruddy, a former Blue.

Classic Match (new)

October 23, 2004. Norwich 2-3 Everton. The Blues edged a five-goal thriller on their most recent league outing at Carrow Road. Kevin Kilbane and Marcus Bent put the visitors 2-0 up at half time but the Canaries fought back straight after the interval through Leon McKenzie and Damien Francis. Steve Watson and Duncan Ferguson came off the bench and the two combined on 72 minutes, the former crossing for the latter to head home and seal all three points.

Us And Them (new)

Many of the Everton line-up could face former team-mates in John Ruddy and James Vaughan on Saturday.

The one-time Blues goalkeeper and Everton's youngest ever goalscorer are the most recent additions to the list of players that have featured for both clubs.

Dave Watson, Matt Jackson, Joe Royle and Graham Stuart have all played for Norwich and Everton.
