With the Blues looking fragile at the back, Al Hain-Cole expects them to share the scoresheet with Farke's attacking side in a high-scoring game

Frank Lampard will be determined to get a first win as Chelsea manager under his belt when his side take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The former midfielder has collected just one point from the first available six in the Premier League, as well as overseeing a penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool in the European Super Cup.

Latest odds

However, he is priced at just 3/4 (1.75) with bet365 to get off the mark with a victory over the winners of last season's Championship.

The Canaries ran out 3-1 winners over Newcastle in their first home game of the league season last weekend, but are 10/3 (4.33) outsiders to come out on top in this one.

These sides had to be separated on penalties after two draws in the 2017-18 FA Cup third round, and you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Team news

Josip Drmic, Onel Hernandez and Christoph Zimmermann all remain ruled out, although Timm Klose and Ibrahim Amadou could be in contention for a first appearance of the season.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger are still short of fitness despite returning to full training, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a long-term absentee.

Preview

Having earned promotion thanks to an attacking style of play that saw their games produce more goals than any other Championship team, Daniel Farke's men have stayed true to their principles in the top flight.

After missing a number of chances in a harsh 4-1 opening defeat against Liverpool, their endeavour was rewarded with a 3-1 win over Newcastle that saw Teemu Pukki grab a hat-trick.

In confident spirits following that performance, they will fancy their chances against a Blues side that has only kept one clean sheet in 10 fixtures under the new boss, including friendlies.

Predictions

Indeed, Chelsea have conceded 18 times and scored 21 since Lampard took over, making odds of 5/6 (1.83) look very attractive on at least three goals being scored and both teams finding the net for Norwich's seventh consecutive competitive match.

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score for a 1.5pt stake at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365
