Chelsea News: The Blues travelled to the Carrow Road Stadium amidst a lot of uncertainty that was surrounding the club. The headlines were being dominated by news that the club had become a frozen asset.
Hence their 3-1 win against Norwich City would surely be a welcome result to all the fans of the Chelsea football club. In this article, we will look at four talking points from the match between Norwich City and Chelsea in the Premier League.
Off-field noise didn’t distract the Chelsea players
All the media attention was at Carrow Road on Thursday evening. Hence, the Chelsea players would have been feeling more pressure than usual as the situation around the club had taken a turn for the worse.
But the Blues put all the worries to their side as soon as the game kicked off. Chelsea scored as early as the 3rd minute as Trevoh Chalobah scored from an early corner. Mason Mount then added to the score as he scored in the 14th minute to make it 2-0.
Teemu Pukki pulled one back for Norwich City in the 69th minute courtesy of a penalty. But Chelsea held on and finally killed the game in the 90th minute as Kante fed in Kai Havertz to make it 3-1 in favour of the Blues at full time!
Kai Havertz continues his brilliant run of form!
The German international scored a goal and provided an assist as the Blues added three more points against Norwich City. Hence, Havertz continued his wonderful recent run of form!
With the goal against Norwich City, Kai Havertz has now scored four goals in his last four games for Chelsea in all competitions. Hence, the fans would certainly be hoping that he continues his fine run of form as the fixtures come thick and fast.
Does relegation await Norwich City?
Norwich City is dangling at the foot of the Premier League table. Hence their loss to Chelsea has not helped their cause as the Canaries seem to be in a lot of trouble as we head to the last part of the season.
The Canaries have 17 points from 28 Premier League games. Owing to this, they are currently 5 points behind 17th placed Everton. Their next three games are against Leeds, Brighton, and Burnley hence they will be vital for their survival.
Chelsea play with their sponsor “Three”
Hours before their match against Norwich City the Blues received a setback. Chelsea’s shirt sponsors Three decided to pause their deal with the club for the time being.
The telecommunications brand made this decision after the UK government froze the club. The UK government has frozen all the assets of Roman Abramovich within the United Kingdom including Chelsea.
But still, Chelsea played the game with the shirt sponsor. It is known why the Blues chose to do so. Hence, it has to be seen if they would continue doing so in the next game as well.
