Chelsea v Norwich City Live Commentary & Result, 23/10/2021, Premier League | Goal.com



The teams are on the pitch at Stamford Bridge, and kick-off isn’t far away now!

Billy Gilmour is ineligible to play against parent club Chelsea, and Norwich line up with a five-man midfield in this match. They’ll be hoping to win the ball and move it forwards, particularly given that the Canaries have only scored two goals so far this season.

Missing their two injured strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner through injury, Chelsea will start with Kai Havertz leading the line. The Germany forward scored his second goal of the season in midweek, against Malmo in the Champions League.

NORWICH CITY SUBS: Angus Gunn, Lukas Rupp, Kieran Dowell, Milot Rashica, Christos Tzolis, Jacob Lungi Sorensen, Brandon Williams, Adam Idah, Andrew Omobamidele.

NORWICH CITY (3-5-2): Tim Krul; Ozan Kabak, Ben Gibson, Grant Hanley; Max Aarons, Pierre Lees-Melou, Mathias Normann, Kenny McLean, Dimitrios Giannoulis; Josh Sargent, Teemu Pukki.

CHELSEA SUBS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Saul Niguez, Ross Barkley, Hakim Ziyech, Cesar Azpilicueta, Malang Sarr.

CHELSEA (3-4-2-1): Edouard Mendy; Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ben Chilwell; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount; Kai Havertz.

Still searching for their first win of the season, Norwich will know that they’ve been written off by most ahead of this match, but coach Daniel Farke will hope that two draws in their last two games will stand the Canaries in good stead, as they prepare to face a Chelsea side yet to drop a point this October.

It’s a clash between the league’s top and bottom teams, as home side Chelsea, who lead Liverpool by a point heading into this game, face Norwich, who remain planted to the foot of the table.

Hello, and welcome to live coverage of this Premier League fixture between Chelsea and Norwich City.
