Grant Holt continued to press his claims for an England call-up by scoring a crucial equaliser to help Norwich earn a 2-2 against Everton as City reached the infamous 40-point mark at Carrow Road.

Nikica Jelavic put Everton ahead with a clever backheel before Jonny Howson equalised just prior to half-time with his first Norwich goal.

Jelavic added his fourth goal in four games to make it 2-1 in controversial circumstances after Norwich thought they should have had a foul, but the home crowd breathed a sigh of relief as Holt calmly swept home his 13th Barclays Premier League goal of the season with 14 minutes to go.
