Jose Mourinho’s men will be gunning for their first win in this season’s English Premier League when they face the Canaries in Sunday’s game
Chelsea look to give their campaign a kick with a win over Norwich, but having not yet won a game away from home this season, they will be banking on their away win at Steaua Bucharest to do so.
Norwich have lost just two of their last 12 league games at home and will be hoping to stun Mourinho’s side like they did against Arsenal and Manchester United on home turf.
The Blues have won six and drawn one of their last seven meetings with this opposition and are clear 4/7 (1.57) favourites with Ladbrokes to earn all three points in this one, while their host is available at 5/1 (6.00) to record a shock win against the star studded London outfit.
Chris Hughton’s men have drawn six of those 12 undefeated home games, and you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them grinding out another no winner, no vanquished result here.
Although Norwich struggle in front of goal, only managing four goals in six matches so far, they have proven hard to break down and this weekend their defence is going to have to be at its very best to stop Chelsea’s attacking talent. You can back both teams to score at 20/21 (1.95).
Chelsea on their own part have not scored more than two goals in a Premier League match under Mourinho since they beat Birmingham 3-2 in August 2007. Having this at the back of the mind, expect a total goal over 1.5 at 2/7 (1.28).
Chris Hughton's only problem is decide on the fitness of defender Sebastien Bassong, who has been suffering from a hamstring injury while Nathan Redmond and defender Javier Garrido are both fit and available to face the Blues.
