Chelsea are back in action once again in the Premier League as Norwich are the latest visitors to Stamford Bridge for the early afternoon kick off.
Hello and welcome along to football.london’s live coverage of the lunchtime kick off between Chelsea and Norwich City at Stamford Bridge.
It’s top versus bottom in the Premier League as Thomas Tuchel’s pacesetters take on Daniel Farke’s basement boys in the early kick off this weekend.
Chelsea are at the summit, a point clear of Liverpool in second. Norwich meanwhile have had a real struggle on their return to the Premier League and are winless through the first eight games, sitting bottom of the table with just two points so far, scoring only two goals and conceding 16 in the first two months of the season.
Chelsea will be without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner for the game as they both sustained injuries in the 4-0 win against Malmo in midweek. Lukaku has an ankle problem while Werner twinged his hamstring in the first half of the comfortable win.
The Canaries have no new injury concerns heading into the game. Mathias Normann should be fit for the visitors but Todd Cantwell won’t be involved as he continues his comeback from injury.
The Blues have an early chance to put themselves four points clear of Liverpool in the standings if they beat Norwich, with Jurgen Klopp’s men not in action until Sunday when they play Manchester United.
