Chelsea Vs Norwich City

Top meets bottom in Saturday’s Premier League battle at Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea and Norwich City prepare to lock horns in the English capital.

The Blues marched to a 1-0 win over Brentford in gameweek eight, while Norwich claimed their second point of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion.

While Chelsea do not sit atop the pile in their Champions League group, they do lead the way in the Premier League with 19 points taken from a possible 24 and also in the knowledge that at least one of Manchester United or Liverpool will drop points on Sunday.

Sixteen goals scored - at an average of two per game - is not the most prolific record in the top flight, but a mere three conceded at the other end of the pitch typifies the new-found defensive resilience under Tuchel, whose side have also amassed nine goals at home in the league so far this term.

Team news

Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner will miss out through injury when Chelsea host Norwich in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off.

Lukaku suffered an ankle injury and Werner a hamstring problem when the Blues thumped Malmo 4-0 in Wednesday’s Champions League clash.

Christian Pulisic remains sidelined with a troublesome ankle complaint of his own.

Bottom-of-the-table Norwich will be without on-loan Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour, who is unable to face his parent club.

Mathias Normann is fit after being forced off during the closing stages against Brighton with cramp, but Todd Cantwell is not yet in contention after his recent Achilles and ankle problems.

Full-back Sam Byram (hamstring) continues his recovery, but centre-half Christoph Zimmermann needs ankle surgery and faces up to six weeks out.
