Chelsea will be on the road to Carrow Road this coming Saturday to face off with Norwich City in an early kick-off. This match will be played on Saturday 24th 2019. The kick-off time is 14:30 GMT.
Norwich City managed to swallow their bitter pill in a 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in their opening match to defeat Newcastle United 3-1 last week. Teemu Pukki was the man of the match and has so far netted 4 goals in the just started season. He is likely the man to watch for the opposition defenders.
Frank Lampard’s men had one of their worst starts to the Premier League in a 4-0 defeat by Manchester United. They continued their slow start in a 1-1 draw against Leicester City. With their transfer ban and leaving of Eden Hazard and David Luis, the Blues are looking upon a number of youngsters to deliver for them.
Norwich City has proven to be a team to reckon with at home and owing to Chelsea’s lackluster start to the season, they are going to have a hard time curtailing them. In addition to the Blues depending on youngsters who lack crucial experience in the premier League, a home win should be considered. It is therefore paramount to put our money where it counts-a win for Norwich City.
