Chelsea – Norwich City
Just few days after their dissapointing performance against Sheffield United, Chelsea will try to do much better when they host Norwich City. The Blues are major favourites to secure the win at the Stamford Bridge as they face the weakest team in the Premier League. Let’s take a look.
Chelsea didn’t look like themselves against Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane. Frank Lampard’s team underperformed and suffered a crushing 0-3 defeat against the Blades. They remain on course to qualify for the Champions League, but this loss hurt their pride for sure.
Against Sheffield United the manager Frank Lampard tried to fix what’s happening, but his substitutions didn’t help, too. He picked players like Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek, Giroud and Marcos Alonso from the bench, but it didn’t influence what’s happening on the pitch. Sheffield United still dominated.
After the game Lampard admitted that he’s not satisfied with the performance of his players. We expect to see him making some changes in the line-up now.
Norwich City are heading back to the Championship. The Canaries are the baddest team in the Premier League this season. They won just five of their matches and they only scored 26 goals in 35 matches. That’s not what the fans were expecting after the promotion to the Prem.
Few days ago Norwich suffered their 24th loss for the season. Daniel Farke’s boys hosted West Ham United, but suffered a 0-4 defeat after a terrible display. At this point it looks like nothing which they try on the pitch actually works. They are getting ready for the Championship now.
Chelsea won’t have any problems to win against Norwich City, we are sure about that. It seems that the Canaries already lost all of their motivation, while Chelsea will want to redeem themselves after the loss against Sheffield United.
