Thomas Hitzlsperger: Played a full 90 minutes

Three overage players are allowed in the side and the former German international was one of them as the Toffees won 2-0 at Norwich.

Hitzlsperger, who has played for both Aston Villa and West Ham, during previous spells in the Premier League, is on trial at Goodison Park as he returns towards full fitness from a string of knee problems.

Currently a free agent, Hitzlsperger completed the full game in central midfield.

Everton, who also fielded Sylvain Distin, won the game thanks to goals from Apostolos Vellios and Conor Grant.
