Norwich travel to Goodison Park to face Everton this weekend as the Canaries go in search of their first points of the Premier League season.

Last weekend's home loss to Watford made it 15 successive Premier League defeats for Daniel Farke's side stretching back to their previous stint in the top flight in 2019/20. They were also dumped out of the Carabao Cup in midweek by a second string Liverpool side to compound a dismal start to their campaign.

Here's how Farke could line Norwich up.


Norwich predicted lineup vs Everton - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Tim Krul (GK) - Dropped to the bench in a rotated lineup for the midweek cup exit and should return for league action.

Max Aarons (RB) - The 21-year-old has struggled with the step up to the top flight but has the qualities to come good.

Grant Hanley (CB) - His position has come under scrutiny in recent weeks after disappointing showings. Must improve.

Ben Gibson (CB) - Farke may opt for more experience as he aims to shore up a leaky defence.

Brandon Williams (LB) - Struggled against the threat of Ismaila Sarr last weekend, and the Manchester United loanee will need to be at his best to contain Andros Townsend.

2. Midfielders

Billy Gilmour (CM) - The Scotland international impressed in Norwich's midweek defeat to Liverpool and will be hoping it's the beginning of a run of good form.

Kenny McLean (CM) - The 29-year-old suffered an injury setback on international duty last month but could be fit enough to start

Pierre Lees-Melou (CM) - Adds steel in midfield as Farke seeks a solution to his side's defensive issues.

3. Forwards

Josh Sargent (RW) - Netted twice in Norwich's 6-0 rout of Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup last month, the 21-year-old looks an exciting addition.

Teemu Pukki (ST) - Netted his first Premier League goal from open play this season with Norwich's equaliser against Watford.

Adam Idah (LW) - Given the nod in a central role in midweek and his inclusion could freshen up Norwich's struggling front three.
