Everton vs Norwich
3:00pm Saturday November
As they made an outstanding performance to beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park, norwich scored their first away targets because the opening weekend of the season.
Both sides played lines in a first half which produced few chances as they prioritised ownership over attack.
But the visitors broke the deadlock when Todd Cantwell (55) had been played through on goal by a tireless Teemu Pukki, before Dennis Srbeny doubled their lead in stoppage time and secured all three factors.
The Canaries remain within five points of the relegation zone and scale off the floor, while Everton suffered their loss of the season.
Everton started aggressively although they tried to capitalise on a defence that was leaky, but struggled to create up chances against a backline that amuses the likes of Cenk and Richarlison Tosun.
With Hernandez having the best opportunity of the half , slipped by Cantwell to possess his effort excellent saved by a diving Pickford arm and Norwich grew into the game.
However, the visitors were finally rewarded for their durability using the opener in the second halfas both Mason Holgate and Yerry Mina left a enormous gap in the Toffees backline since they chased Pukki round the pitch, letting Cantwell through in acres of room to slide home to give his side the lead.
Everton hit , giving Tim Krul plenty to do as Cenk Tosun pushed fine saves out of the goalkeeper, but since they sought the equaliser they left themselves exposed at the back and Gylfi Sigurdsson and bombarding the Norwich target with corners.
Substitutes Emiliano Buendia and Dennis Srbeny united the former weaving to the box before the forward finding the corner, feeding Srbeny out six metres and setting the match.

You leak goals all time and can’t have a peek in away from home, before scoring twice at Goodison Park with a blank sheet to boot.
The Canaries have an few points that lift them and they have a fine display to thank for it. They cleared corners all afternoon, looked desperate to throw themselves in the means of everything and anything, and kept shape.
In assault, Teemu Pukki leaves with no goal but that he worked to drag that and the defenders such a way, giving the others the freedom to ramble in space. A goalscorer however a much more important team player.
As for Everton, manager Marcos Silva faces yet another setback. Fans can keep tabs on the kind which can be described as sporadic at best. The midfield is making little together with great forwards making runs ahead of them, and that has to change.
No goals today, however, the job he does the ball off caused chaos to the Everton defence that were just made to depart the gaps that allowed Cantwell the space for its opener. A major round of applause as he came off has been well deserved.
