Coleman Back For Blues

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Everton boss David Moyes will welcome back right-back Seamus Coleman for this afternoon's trip to Norwich but striker Victor Anichebe has failed to shake off the knock he sustained at Oldham last weekend.

Coleman returns to the starting XI after missing the Blues' last five games with a thigh problem, with Phil Neville dropping to the bench.

Moyes' only other change from the FA Cup draw at Boundary Park sees Anichebe replaced by Steven Naismith.

In goal, Tim Howard makes his 300th Everton appearance, while defender Sylvain Distin becomes the first overseas outfield player to accrue 400 Premier League outings.

The pair are joined at the back by Coleman, Leighton Baines and stand-in skipper Phil Jagielka, while Naismith's midfield cohorts are Steven Pienaar, Leon Osman, Darron Gibson and Marouane Fellaini.

In attack, Croatian Nikica Jelavic starts his first Premier League game since last month's goalless draw at Southampton.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Naismith, Pienaar, Gibson, Osman, Fellaini, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Heitinga, Oviedo, Mirallas, Hitzlsperger, Neville, Duffy.

Norwich City: Bunn, R Martin, Johnson, Bassong, Turner, Snodgrass, Howson, Holt, Hoolahan, Garrido, Becchio. Subs: Camp, Whittaker, Pilkington, Fox, Kamara, E Bennett, R Bennett.
