Norwich City fought back to draw 1-1 with Everton after Romelu Lukaku scored on Saturday for the sixth successive Premier League match to give the visitors an early lead.

Lukaku headed in Gerard Deulofeu's cross at the far post after 15 minutes but struggling Norwich equalised two minutes into the second half, Wes Hoolahan scrambling the ball over the line following a corner at Carrow Road.

Everton climbed to sixth in the table, three points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, and Norwich stayed 16th.

Manchester City can return to the top of the table with victory over Swansea City later on Saturday. Bournemouth host Manchester United in the day's final match.
