Chelsea vs Norwich City LIVE in Premier League: Preview, Squad News and Dream11 Prediction, CHE vs NOR live streaming, follow for live updates. The table-toppers will take on the club at the bottom of the Premier League.
Chelsea vs Norwich LIVE in the Premier League: Match Preview
The Blues are the clear favourites to win this one, however, they would not want a repeat of the Brentford game. Chelsea were the favourites to win that one as well but it was the home side that created better chances. On top of it, they needed some world-class saves from Edouard Mendy to get the three points. Even against Aston Villa, it required a great amount of defending to get the three points.
Thus Thomas Tuchel will be keen that his team does not need to put in a solid defensive display. Norwich has scored only two goals and it would become a cause of worry for the Blues if the Canneries manage to trouble them.
Though Chelsea have their issues Norwich have got their own problems. They are at the bottom of the table, they have scored the least amount of goals and they have conceded the most number of goals. For Norwich, Chelsea are just another big bully against whom they will have to suffer a lot.
Chelsea vs Norwich Live: Squad News and Injury Update
The Blues will be without their striker force with Werner and Lukaku getting injured against Malmo. While Christian Pulisic is still out injured.

Chelsea vs Norwich Live: Players to watch out for
The Ballon d’Or nominee will try to pull the strings in the midfield. However, he is not blessed with a lot of pace. The Norwich City midfielder could try to press him to win the ball. But if he is able to bypass that press then the away time will be in trouble.
Often in big games we have seen that the goalkeeper for the underdogs has a big game. Something similar will be needed against Chelsea as well. Norwich City’s defence will be breached many times by the Blues but it will be up to Krul to make sure that his team stays in the game.
