Rafa Benitez confirms Everton midfielder out of Norwich clash & speaks on transfers

Rafael Benitez was not a popular appointment at Goodison Park

Norwich vs Everton

Everton will be back in Premier League action on Saturday afternoon.

The Toffees face a trip to Carrow Road for a meeting with basement dwellers, Norwich City.

Everton head into the game in simply wretched form. Rafael Benitez’s side did win their FA Cup meeting with Hull last weekend.

However, the Merseysiders have won just one of their last 12 Premier League outings.

Before this awful run, though, Everton’s last win came against Norwich all the way back on September 25th.

And whilst the Canaries did experience a slight upturn in form upon Dean Smith taking over, they are now firmly back to losing ways. Norwich have won just two games all season, are the lowest scorers in the PL with eight goals, and have conceded the most goals in the division with 44.

So, an Everton win looks a must if Rafa Benitez does not want the Everton faithful to completely turn on him.

Rafa Benitez on transfers

Before facing Norwich, Benitez spoke to the press on Friday.

When doing so, the Spaniard would confirm that Tom Davies is out of the Norwich game.

Elsewhere, Benitez was asked about the possibility of further transfers this month, confirming that the club are always looking to strengthen their squad, and whilst Everton are happy with the three players brought in thus far, they are open to another winter addition:

“We are always looking to strengthen the squad. The reality is we’ve balanced the books, which I think is a positive. We are open to any good option.

“At the moment we’re happy with the three we’ve brought. But we are open-minded.”
