  1. It's all over at Carrow Road and what a game it has been. Both sides have looked impressive, but goalscorers Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Ross Barkley will steal the headlines for either side. Special mentions to for Nathan Redmond and Seamus Coleman, and both sides should be very happy with that performance.

  2. 90

    4 extra minutes at Carrow Road. Can either side claim the victory?

  3. 83

    Seamus Coleman nearly gives Everton the lead with an excellent half-volley, but it just evades the far post.

  4. Martin Olsson is next to make his debut for Norwich, replacing the impressive Nathan Redmond.

  5. 78

    Arouna Kone makes his Everton debut, replacing Nikica Jelavic.

  6. 78

    Fellaini's far post delivery falls to Nikica Jelavic. Naismith is first to the striker's knockdown but Ruddy saves his effort, while Jelavic's rebound is blocked excellently.

  7. 74

    Van Wolfswinkel looks very lively for Norwich and continues to cause Everton problems. Just called for offside when he's through on goal.

  8. Steven Naismith replaces Kevin Mirallas, while Wes Hoolahan comes off for Alexander Tettey. 72 minutes gone.

  9. It's all even once more! Redmond releases Whittaker who delivers an excellent cross-cum-shot, and van Wolfswinkel swivels beautifully to head past Howard. Great goal.

  10. 68

    For the first time in the game Norwich are chasing a lead. 68 minutes gone.

  11. And Everton have taken the lead! Pienaar's excellent reverse pass gives Jelavic the time and space to fire an attempt on goal. Ruddy saves well, but Coleman follows up to score the second for Roberto Martinez's men. Great turnaround, 2-1 now!

  12. 64

    Everton are really in the ascendancy now. Barkley's influence is the biggest factor too, as he's dominating the midfield.

  13. Great work from Coleman on the right gives plenty space for Barkley to fire a 20 yard strike right into the far corner. Brilliant strike and great work from Coleman, it's 1-1!

  14. 58

    A Baines free-kick creates confusion in the Norwich area, but Ruddy does excellently to clear it to safety for a throw. All Everton pressure at the minute.

  15. 55

    Plenty of tough tackles flying in now as Fellaini first concedes a free-kick, then some tough midfield battles ensue. The goal has really sparked the game to life.

  16. 54

    Norwich are now happy to sit back and absorb the Everton pressure. Again it's Barkley who takes the game by the scruff of the neck with a shot from 20 yards, but it's a comfortable save for Ruddy.

  17. 51

    Steven Whittaker pounces on some poor defending from Everton and finds himself bearing down on goal. He curls an excellent effort towards goal but it rebounds off the post, only for Whittaker himself to finish from a difficult angle. 1-0!

  18. 48

    A clever free-kick routine nearly releases van Wolfswinkel, but the referee has awarded a free-kick to Everton for a scuffle.

  19. 47

    Everton start the brighter of the two sides. Some great work down the right hand side gives Coleman the space to deliver a low cross. Mirallas is first to it, but his effort hits the side netting.

  20. What do you think of the first 45 minutes of action then? Who has impressed you for either side? And what do you think the result will be? Let me know at MattStead91 and by e-mail at
