Everton are without key players for Norwich City’s Premier League visit to Goodison Park next Saturday.

Captain Phil Neville is out for up to two months after the midfielder underwent a knee operation on Friday.

Influential midfielder Marouane Fellaini will also miss the game against the Canaries through suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the 2-1 defeat at Reading.

Darron Gibson could return, however, after featuring in an under-21 clash with Reading as he continues his comeback from a thigh injury that has ruled him out since September 1.

Moyes admitted that Neville’s influence was missed as Reading fought back to win their first league game of the season.

“He (Neville) had an operation on his knee that could keep him out for six to eight weeks,” he said.

“His leadership was missed but we were missing quite a lot of senior players today and you could see that by our bench. Thomas Hitzlsperger did OK, not too bad.’’

  • We should win this by 3 or 4, particularly with their best 2 players out!! Anything less than a comfortable win will not be good enough. Questions will need to be answered. Ged - Mr Optimistic and Mr Norwich (fan leader and legend)

  • Ethered! Agree with your sentiments YorkCanary. Hoots is bringing out the footballer in Johnno. The presence of Alex Tettey helps. We can get something from Goodison-we did last season. OTBC.

  • `It` has to be an Archant "employee". Has anybody tried posting to the Green `Un sites? If so, what happens? Ethered? I don`t imagine anybody being interested much in that experiment. Signs of an upturn @ 1p5wich, in truth. 6 points from 4 games under McCarthy. Good tight defence, too......

  • The more they suffer from these missing players the better in terms of us getting a result. Let's get at them

  • I feel the team is confident but not over confident. Hoots and the team seem to be now in harmony and he has shown he can send a team out to be the best in the land. Man U were not poor, Norwich didn't let them play something completely different! Everton and also Southampton away will be a test and a yard stick of where we are, but quietly confident here. Also 3pm kick-offs great for us out East. OTBC

  • Hi, Yorky. Johnson`s determination to prove himself gets a bit edgy against Arsenal, the Club that `let him go` as a youngster. I worry that he`ll pick up a card- or too many! He`s more than a midfield workhorse\hatchet man and Hoots seems to be getting the best out of him. Tettey`s presence helps too. Great buy, Tettey. Great freebie, Johnno! We have a great chance to get something from Everton, but they have a masterful manager and he will set his team up well. We got a good point there last season, with a Ruddy great performance and a smart goal from Holty. IHWT.

  • If we can bring another point home from our travelsI think that the genuine intelligent and realistic canary supporters will be very happy. Any away point in this league is a good point and against an established team like Everton it will be a great one. OTBC

  • Set Johnno loose on `em. He loves beating up the "big boys"! Reading took the biscuit and proved the Toffees are chewable. Perhaps our point in Berkshire wasn`t so bad after all?

  • Fellaini is a very special player but then so is Tettey. Let`s not be over-awed by their "Superstars", present or absent. Go get `em, boys! OTBC.

  • I was way more annoyed at not beating Villa and QPR at home. Reading and Spurs could have been wins (outplayed Spurs), but I was fairly content at the results. You're right about Johnson too. Seems to step up with those players against him. With Fellaini and Neville missing from Everton's midfield we should really be trying to boss that area as they only have Hitzlsperger who has played much recently and Vellios I think unless they play Gibson who has been out for ages as well. Hoping that Wes has a real field day out there and Ruddy further proves their mistake at not giving him a real chance
