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.
Martin Olsson is next to make his debut for Norwich, replacing the impressive Nathan Redmond.
Arouna Kone makes his Everton debut, replacing Nikica Jelavic.
Steven Naismith replaces Kevin Mirallas, while Wes Hoolahan comes off for Alexander Tettey. 72 minutes gone.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Great half of football at Carrow Road then, despite the 0-0 scoreline. Two young Englishmen are stealing the show so far, with Redmond Norwich's biggest threat and Everton's Ross Barkley dominating the centre of midfield. Ricky van Wolfswinkel has also looked bright for Norwich, while Sylvain Distin has been Everton's defensive rock.
Mirallas bursts through the Norwich defence and taps the ball past Martin, who doesn't move and blocks off the Belgian. Free-kick, and yellow card for the defender.
Another from Henry Futcher, an Everton fan excited by the prospect of Martinez's management: 'I'm going for a 2-1 Eevrton win with Jelavic and Mirallas scoring for us and van.Wolfswinkel for Norwich! COYB!!!'
Another prediction from James, a blue in rainy Manchester. He hasn't let the weather dampen his hopes though! 'I've just seen Everton's team sheet that has some of the Premier League's most exciting players; surely we can get off to a flying start under Martinez? We've got a great defence, aggressive midfield and if Jelavic can do what he's capable of then I'm thinking 3-1 to the Toffees? Lets hope the young lad Deulofeu from Barca comes off the bench to seal a victory!'
Chris from Oz has levelled the stakes in the predictions: 'I'm predicting a tough start for Martinez's Everton reign. Canaries to win 2-1.'
Stewart speaking from Spain is first in then, and Everton are receiving his backing: 'This is Stewart MacLaren from a warm & windy Torrevieja in Spain saying that Everton will beat Norwich City 3-1 at Carrow Road this afternoon with good goals from Leighton Baines, Marouane Fellaini & Nikica Jelavic.'
Everton are the 5/4 favourites to collect all three points today with the hosts 23/10 and the draw 12/5. Nikica Jelavic and Ricky van Wolfswinkel head the first goalscorer market and are both available at 15/2 until kick-off in our Price Boosts. Bet on the match here.
