Chelsea is predicted to win their home encounter against Norwich City as per the latest Chelsea vs Norwich Prediction and Odds

Chelsea will host bottom placed Norwich City in their next match in the Premier League. Norwich is yet to register a win in the league so far and needs to start winning games if they are to avoid the drop this season. Back to back draws have revived their hopes of survival and they will surely take their chances against the mighty Blues.

The reigning UEFA Champions League winners are in jubilant form. Thomas Tuchel’s side is currently topping the table and should keep their place provided they claim all the three points against the Canaries.

But to make the situation worse both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner limped off the pitch in their 4-0 victory against Malmo in the Champions League.

Tuchel later confirmed the Belgian twisted his ankle and needs time to recover.

I don’t know too much more than you. Romelu twisted his ankle with the foul in the box. It will take a while. We need more examinations to be more precise but they will be out for some matches.

It’s not a muscle injury or because of physical fatigue. He is a little bit overplayed, this is my opinion and maybe I’m not even right.”

With both his main strikers out, it remains to be seen who gets the nod up front.

Chelsea vs Norwich Prediction and Odds: Recent Form

Chelsea has had an excellent season as of now. They are Premier league table toppers as of now. In eight matches so far, Chelsea has won 6 matches while having settled for a draw in one match. Chelsea’s sole defeat in this campaign came against Manchester City as a Gabriel Jesus strike was enough for the English champions to subdue the London giants. They registered victories over their London rivals Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal and fought well with Liverpool in a 1-1 draw.

Wins against Aston Villa, Southampton and Brentford have cemented their place in the top and they are likely to remain there given by their current form.

Chelsea vs Norwich City Predictions and Betting Analysis

Norwich sealed the Championship title last season as they made their way to the top flight this season. But they have been far from their superior form as they have visibly struggled to build something on their past season’s experience.

They opened their Premier League season with a 3-0 thrashing at the hand of Liverpool followed by a 5-0 thumping defeat against Manchester City.

Consecutive defeats against Leicester City, Arsenal, Watford and Everton left them reeling at the bottom of the Premier League table. They have just two points in their tally and if the situation doesn’t improve they might be heading to the Championship once more.

Chelsea vs Norwich Prediction and Odds: Head to Head

Both the teams have faced each other 56 times so far. Chelsea have dominated the fixture with 24 wins while the Canaries are not far behind with 14 wins. 18 matches have no results.

Chelsea’s last defeat came way back in 1994 when Norwich inflicted a 3-0 defeat on them.

The Blues are unbeaten in the last 17 games and will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run. The biggest aggregate was when Chelsea lost to Norwich 3-2 in a closely contested game.

The Blues have won their last encounters in the Premier League and Norwich would need a mammoth performance to exceed the expectations.

Chelsea vs Norwich Prediction and Odds: Predicted Winner

Chelsea are way ahead when it comes to experience and talent. They have caught everyone’s attention with their fluid and attacking style of play and they shouldn’t have any problem in dealing with the Canaries.

The Blues had to fight it out against Brentford as a Ben Chilwell volley secured all the points for them. They were nowhere near their best but it was Edouard Mendy who rescued them on a number of occasions to keep the opponents at bay.

On the other hand, Norwich has failed to live up to the expectations following a brilliant season in the second tier last term. They would be needing some inspiration before indulging in the turf war with Chelsea.
