Jeff Stelling and Neil Mellor predict Everton clash v Norwich

Jeff Stelling has backed Everton to pick up a much needed three points in their Premier League clash against Norwich.

The Sky Sports host has predicted that it will finish 2-0 to the Toffees at Carrow Road, with form having dropped.

Anwar El Ghazi is ready to make his debut for the club, after arriving on a loan move from Aston Villa yesterday (13 January).

Sharing his prediction on Sky Sports’ Super 6 this week, Stelling even backed the Blues for a rare clean-sheet.

Sky pundit Neil Mellor also made his prediction, and backed the same outcome for those travelling fans this weekend, although with one Norwich reply.

“Norwich have failed to score in their last six Premier League matches and find themselves at the foot of the table, yet only three points from safety,” he said.

“They will get on the scoresheet this time around against a struggling Everton side, but the quality that Rafa Benitez’ team possess should allow them to edge their opponents.

“Dominic Calvert-Lewin could be amongst the goalscorers and prove to be the difference in this one.”

Difference.

Calvert-Lewin should be ready to start this one after being rested against Hull, and he will be hoping for a much more positive afternoon.

The England international finally returned to action against Brighton after months out with injury, but missed a penalty, smashing it over the bar.

It was brilliant to see him take on that responsibility, but his desperation to score again took over and he blazed it way over the bar.

An early goal against a shocking Norwich side would be perfect, and that could be the catalyst to set him on his way.

Rafa Benitez will be desperate for three points here, and the truth is that nothing short of that will do in East Anglia.
