Current European Champions Chelsea will head to Carrow Road for a mid-week clash against Norwich City, in the ongoing season of the English Premier League.
Chelsea is currently in 3rd place on the points table, trailing the leaders, Manchester City, by 16 points. Even though the Blues have played 2 games less compared to the Citizens, it is practically impossible for them to catch up, especially given the exceptional form of Pep Guardiola's boys. However, a win in this game will further cement Chelsea's place within the top 4. After facing a disappointing loss in the penalty shootout against Liverpool in the EFL Cup Finals, the club has managed to win both its latest encounters, against Luton in the FA Cup and more recently against Burnley in the top flight.
The visitors have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 Premier League games, and most football betting sites are predicting a similar performance for this game too.
Norwich City will go into Thursday’s game on the back of 5 consecutive defeats. In its last game, Norwich were the favorites to beat visitors Brentford but faced a disappointing 3-1 defeat. Sitting last on the points table, the club has nothing to lose now and will be playing with whatever might it can, to go out with its head held high. Having faced a humiliating 7-0 defeat in the reverse fixture, Norwich will take to the field to put up a better performance this time around.
Match prediction and betting tips for Norwich City F. C. vs Chelsea F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Carrow Road Stadium, Norwich, on 10th March 2022.
Despite being fit and returning to the training ground, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso are likely to be rested by coach Thomas Tuchel in this game. He is expected to start with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Andreas Christensen, Romelu Lukaku, and Jorginho. Thiago Silva and Reece James are unlikely to make it to the starting eleven.
Norwich coach Dean Smith is likely to allow young Jonathan Rowe to start his first Premier League game, as Billy Gilmour, Ozan Kabak, and Christoph Zimmermann remain doubtful.
Despite the ongoing situation around club ownership and Roman Abramovich, we expect Chelsea players to solely focus on the task at hand, and net at least a couple of goals, while the hosts are unlikely to score.
Bet on a Chelsea win.
