Whistle goes and Everton deservedly lead at the break through Steven Naismith's early goal.

45
Snodgrass wins free-kick in dangerous position wide on the right. Chance to put this into the area. The Scot is over it, but the ball in it is poor and is harmlessly over the back of the defence.

43
Great play between Pienaar and Osman, a flick from South African releases the England midfielder but wastes another chance as he shoots straight at Ruddy, should have done better with that.

Snodgrass takes and Bassong rises, but it is wide - best chance so far for the visitors.

40
Holt does well to hold off Jagielka, he finds Hoolahan, but Everton clear. Norwich maintain the pressure and win a corner.

Great keeping from Ruddy as he is off his line quickly to the feet of Naismith to deny the Scot a second.

32
Another half chance for Osman as Norwich clearance falls for him on the edge of the box but he can only find Ruddy with his shot.

30
Good run from Whittaker down the right and Tettey looks for ball over the top, but it is too strong. Wasted chance.

28
Good challenge from Bassong to stop Baines as he is on a charge, Jelavic them flys in with a wide looking challenge. Seemingly fortunate not to see a card.

26
More excellent work from Oviedo as he finds Naismith with a lovely ball, he looks for run of Jevlavic - but the Croat is flagged for offside.

25
Great chance for Norwich as Holt barges his way through a couple of challenges, it comes for him on the edge of the box but he lashes it high and wide.

23
Better possession from Norwich, they haven't stopped trying to play football - but Everton remain untroubled with Tim Howard a spectator thus far.

21
Unsure work from Distin as he just about gets the ball back to Howard with Holt almost latching onto back pass.

20
More good work from Baines as he drills a cross into the six-yard box but Jelavic just can't get a touch.

18
Big claims for a penalty as Baines looks for run of Naismith, Tettey slides in but nothing is given.

15
Everton should be 2-0 up. Great run from Baines as he drives into the box, his shot is parried by Ruddy but Osman can only find the top of the net as he volleyed his shot into the ground.

14
Norwich look for a quick reply and a win a corner. Pilkington to take, but Naismith flicks the ball away and Everton clear.

GOAL - STEVEN NAISMITH - The Scottish forward fires home from eight yards after great work down the left from Oviedo, who was found by wonderful ball over the top from Hitzlsperger.

8
Loose play from Everton allows Norwich to counter through Tettey, he find Snodgrass - he earns a free-kick which Norwich will play into the box. Snodgrass takes but it is poor and Osman heads away.

7
Good run from Pilkington down the left, he lays it back for Garrido - but his cross is over-hit and Baines clears.

5
Strong challenge, but a fair one, from Bassong and Pienaar is down needing treatment.

4
Heitinga breaks from the back looks for Naismith, he turns 30-yards out but is closed down well by the visitors and chance is gone.

2
Early chance for Everton, good work from Naismith - he works the ball back for Osman who curls his effort just wide of Ruddy's far post.

1
Interesting to note that Phl Jagielka has started at right-back for Everton.

1
Everton gets us underway kicking from left to right.

Players are out and shaking hand, kick-off just moments away.

Plenty of feedback still heading my way, thank again - and mainly Evertonians in confident mood, including one who I am a bit jealous of considering my fingers are turning to ice. "This is Stewart MacLaren from a bright & breezy Torrevieja in Spain saying that Everton will beat Norwich 3-1 at Goodison Park this afternoon with goals from Leighton Baines, Leon Osman & Nikica Jelavic."

A very cold Goodison Park today, players just returning to the dressing rooms now - kick-off just 15-minutes away.

Thanks for the feedback already, plenty of confident Everton's fans despite being a bit understrength today - Conrad Murphy has mailed in to say: "Everton without Fellaini & Mirallas still too strong at home for Norwich, tight affair but Everton shading it by a goal."

Everton: Howard, Jagielka, Baines, Heitinga, Distin, Naismith, Oviedo, Hitzlsperger, Osman, Pienaar, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Duffy, Hibbert, Gueye, Barkley, Vellios, Kennedy
