Norwich have hung on at Carrow Road to secure their first league win since November, And also their first win of 2022 in the league.
Norwich two goals in two first-half minutes, from Everton’s own Keane and Idah, have proven enough to earn them a valuable three points.
Everton improved in the second half and Richarlison pulled a goal back with a wonderful overhead kick, but it turned out to be a mere consolation for the Toffees.
It’s a Disappointment for Rafa Benitez men’s who are yet to win a game in 2022 in the Premier League.
