Norwich winger Snodgrass expecting Everton backlash

The Toffees were beaten by newly-promoted Reading last weekend and the Scot is anticipating a tough test, but wants the Canaries to take confidence from beating Manchester United
Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass is wary of facing Everton on Saturday, after the Toffees slipped to defeat at Reading last week.

The Scot is expecting the Toffees to be well up for the clash at Goodison Park, but is confident with a tough run of fixtures, having played in four Football league seasons with Leeds United.

Snodgrass told the club's official website: “We’ve got a tough game against Everton on Saturday and we’ll need to be ready.

“I’ve come from the Championship where it was a game every Saturday and Tuesday. The boys here have probably had a year out of it but when the games come thick and fast that’s what you want as a footballer, to be involved in games.

“I’m sure Everton will want to bounce back after losing to Reading last week. David Moyes is a terrific manager, and what he’s done for Everton has been superb.

“His Everton teams will always be up for it, giving 110 per cent and we know what to expect on Saturday, it’ll be a great battle.”

The Canaries beat Manchester United 1-0 last week and Snodgrass hopes the side can take confidence from that game into their game with Everton, and beyond.

He added: “I always believe that we’ve got players that can create chances, and players who can take those chances, and we did that on Saturday against Man United.

“We defended as a back 11 at times. John Ruddy made some terrific blocks, we made some great tackles and headers, and that’s what it takes to get a result against them.

“You know you’ve done well when you’re getting chances against Manchester United, because they’re usually really resilient and solid.

“But for us as a team we attacked well as well as defended well. On another day we could maybe got two or three.

“The win against Arsenal was our first win in the league, and that then gave us the edge and the belief that we could go and do it.

“It was just a matter of time before the first win came because we were creating some great chances but it just wasn’t falling for us.”
