    • 72' This is turning into a bit of a classic.
    • 71' GOAL! Van Wolfswinkel equalises for Norwich! Whittaker mishits a cross that goes straight to Van Wolfswinkel, who buries his header into the far corner. Debut goal and a perfectly timed one!

    • 68' Whittaker again gets into a fine position in the box but this time tries to do too much and the move breaks down.

    • 62' Goals change games and Everton are in charge here.

    • 46' SECOND HALF. We're back underway at Carrow Road.

    • 44' Baines's free kick clips the top of the wall. Fellaini tees it up for Barkley, who lashes a brilliant shot just over the top. Great effort by the young midfielder.
    • 43' Booking for Martin after a blatant block on Miralles on the edge of the Norwich box. Chance for Everton in Leighton Baines territory...

    • 34' Fellaini drives forward and finds Pienaar, but the South African's cross is too long for Jelavic.

    • 30' Distin is penalised for a shove on Bennett 25 yards from the Everton goal.

    • 24' Howson looks long for Van Woldfswinkel again, but just over hits it and a good chance goes.

    • 9' But Osman is penalised for a foul in a similar area and Norwich have their first chance of the game.
    • 8' Van Wolfswinkel chases a lost cause but fouls Jagielka in the process and Everton have a free-kick. A subdued start to the new season from a Norwich perspective.

    • 6' Everton have done a good job of silencing Carrow Road. The Toffees are dominating possession so far.

    • 4' Johnson catches Pienaar 30 yards from goal and Everton have a chance with the free kick.
    • 3' Everton have may a good start here. Seamus Coleman is surging down the right wing at every opportunity.

    • 14.55 The players are out of the tunnel and we're all set at Carrow Road. Which way will this one go? Tweet me at @mjdasilva
    • 14.50 Norwich have not won their opening league game in any of the last 10 seasons (D5 L5) and have not won their opening game in the top-flight since the first ever Premier League season (1992/93), when they won 4-2 at Arsenal. Three of the last four meetings between these two sides have ended in a draw.
    • 14.45 So a few stats for you... The Toffees have lost seven of their last 10 opening Barclays Premier League games, winning the other three. Everton have also gone eight Premier League away games without a win.
    • 14.40 EVERTON TEAM NEWS Everton boss Roberto Martinez is without midfielder Darron Gibson, who strained a knee ligament in the friendly against Real Betis last Sunday. Full-back Tony Hibbert (calf) misses out, as does defender Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) and winger Magaye Gueye. Ross Barkley starts in midfield.
    • 14.35 NORWICH TEAM NEWS: New Norwich striker Gary Hooper misses out today with a shin injury suffered in pre-season last weekend but Canaries' boss Chris Hughton is able to hand Ricky van Wolfswinkel a debut. Fellow new recruit Leroy Fer is suspended whilst captain Sebastien Bassong and Anthony Pilkington both miss out with knee injuries.
    • 14.30 NORWICH CITY: Ruddy, Whittaker, Turner, Martin, Garrido, E Bennett, Howson, Johnson, Redmond, Hoolahan, van Wolfswinkel. Subs: Bunn, R Bennett, Olsson, Butterfield, Fox, Tettey, Becchio /// EVERTON: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Coleman, Barkley, Osman, Fellaini, Mirallas, Jelavic, Pienaar. Subs: Robles, Heitinga, Kone, Deulofeu, Naismith, Stones, Anichebe.
    • 14.25 Chris Hughton: “It’s now our responsibility to give Gary Hooper and Rick van Wolfswinkel the ammunition they need to be able to do what they do best. That’s the challenge but this is such a tough league and every game is a tough game. Can you play a very open game? Well you can if you want to score goals but you are also going to concede goals as well so it’s about getting the balance right."
    • 14.20 Roberto Martinez brings his Everton side to Carrow Road looking to get the post David Moyes era off to a flying start - but Norwich have lost only one of their six Premier League home games to Everton.
