Norwich City vs Chelsea for the English Premier League championship match on Saturday at Carrow Road Stadium.
Norwich City will try to win at home when they host Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
Coach Daniel Farke became the first Norwich coach to win his first Premier League home game since Mike Walker in 1992 last weekend when he beat Newcastle 3-1 at Carrow Road.
Finnish striker Teemu Pukki is still in excellent form, coming from last season with 29 goals, and in his previous game made a hat-trick against Steve Bruce’s Magpies. For the Canaries, he must stay fit as he is one of the most important players in the team, as is Todd Cantwell.
There is a concern for the coach, it is that sometimes it seems that the team breaks defensively, and those kinds of mistakes and opportunities they give against good quality teams can be fatal.
After the win over Newcastle, Farke is expected to keep the same eleven against Chelsea on Saturday. The only question is left-back Lewis, as his fitness is not the best, he will probably be replaced by veteran Sam Byram.
The Blues remain unbeaten and come from a 1-1 draw at home against Leicester City last Sunday. Once again Chelsea started the game well but ended up levelling out in the second half.
The former Derby County manager has not been successful ahead of Blues, and last Sunday’s game once again showed some shortcomings in the team.
The young Mason Mount has been a pleasant surprise, and in this game, he opened the score after seven minutes. The 20-year-old has shown that he has a lot of potential and maturity.
In fact, Chelsea have inexperienced players, and after the substitutions, they made in their last game, the Foxes started to dominate the game.
The performance breakdown of Lampard’s team can be attributed to the youth in which the coach strongly believes. The team had a full week of rest, the Blues must be stronger. Lampard is likely to play the same group as in the last game, with Giroud once again ready to lead the attacking line.
Although Chelsea has not had positive results, their creativity and quality in the last third should be enough to beat Norwich.
