Norwich City vs Chelsea : Preview and Predictions
Norwich has been up and down the Championship table and lack of consistency has already put the out of the promotion race. It is most likely that remain a second tier side come May. The team is currently 13th in the standings, 5 placed behind where they finished last season.
The current form of the Canaries is decent though with 2 wins and 1 draw coming from the last three games. However, the teams they faced during the period are Millwall, Birmingham and Burton, all in the bottom half of the table and two in the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Chelsea extended their unbeaten run to 7 games with the thrilling 2-2 draw against Arsenal. The team picked 5 wins and 2 draws during the period, but the away form remains on the lower side. The Blues managed just 1 win from their last 5 away games, which is something they must improve in the current weeks.
Norwich City vs Chelsea: Head-to-head
Chelsea are unbeaten in the last 13 matches against Norwich in all competitions, 10 wins and 3 draws.
At Carrow Road, the Blues bagged 4 wins and a draw from their last 5 visits.
The last two FA Cup meetings between the sides were won by Chelsea, both at Stamford Bridge.
The most recent FA Cup meeting between Norwich and Chelsea was a goal-less draw in calendar year 2002.
Norwich City vs Chelsea: Prediction
We know Conte likes to rotate his squad heavily for domestic cup games. But their bench strength is a little too much for a team of Norwich’s stature. We can expect the likes of Willian and Drinkwater coming in the place of Hazard and Fabregas and Michy Batshuayi is most likely to start instead of the misfiring Alvaro Morata.
To summarize, this look like easy pickings for Chelsea and I believe that they will do the same on football too.
