Frank Lampard’s Chelsea travels to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City live in the third game week of the Premier League this afternoon.
Chelsea have had a tough start to their life under Frank Lampard and the transfer ban as the London club has failed to win any of their previous 3 games, including a 4-0 loss to Manchester United in the opening week.
Former Chelsea player turned manager is still searching for the first win as a Chelsea manager and Norwich City could be his best bet in that regard after playing out a 1-1 draw against Leicester City last week.
For the blues, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger have returned to training, but the duo wouldn’t be match match-fit to take part in this game.
Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante has been battling with an ankle issue and the final call will only be taken before the kickoff on Saturday.
Reece James is expected to come in after the international break while Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains a long term absentee, as per the reports.
For Norwich, star player Timm Klose will be back in action for the home side after missing out through injury, while the hat-trick hero, Teemo Pukki, will be itching to get on to the pitch.

WHEN IS IT
Norwich vs Chelsea will kickoff Live at 12:30 BST
Chelsea have played some good football and have created enough chances to secure the three points. However, the Strikers have struggled to convert the chances upfront for the Blues which should be a major concern for Frank Lampard.
The Blues are desperate and will come out firing and we expect a 4-2 win for the Lampard’s men.
