All you need to know ahead of Norwich vs Chelsea
Can Norwich avoid defeat at home to Chelsea?
Norwich would have been really disappointed by the result and their performance against Brentford last time out. Toney scored a hat trick, which included two penalties, for Brentford before Pukki pulled a goal back in stoppage time for the hosts. Norwich sit bottom of the Premier League table and are 5pts adrift of safety but if they could get something out of Thursday's game it could be vital in their attempts at survival.
Norwich Predicted Lineup: Krul, Hanley, Gibson, Byram, Williams, McLean, Rashica, Normann, Gilmour, Pukki & Sargent
Chelsea would have been expecting a tough 90-minutes at Turf Moor against a Burnley side that have started to pick up some decent results of late but instead, the Londoners ran out comfortable winners. The first-half ended goalless but an early goal in the second forty-five from James put the visitors in front. Havertz bagged two goals in the space of 2-minutes and Pulisic added a fourth and final goal in the 69th-minute. Chelsea are still way off the title race but all they can do is keep winning games and hope that Liverpool and Man City drop some.
Chelsea Predicted Lineup: Mendy, Silva, Rüdiger, Chalobah, James, Saúl, Jorginho, Kanté, Mount, Pulisic & Havertz
Norwich: Kabak, Idah and Omobamidele are the main doubts for the hosts.
Chelsea: Azpilicueta and Chilwell could both miss the trip to Carrow road through injury.
