Team News

  • A hip injury sustained against West Brom could see Steven Whittaker replaced by Russell Martin at right-back.
  • Chris Hughton will hope to have Grant Holt back available following a hamstring injury and the striker may return in place of Morison having scored in two of his three Premier League appearances against Chelsea.
  • Despite a first defeat in 10 games at the weekend the Canaries' manager shouldn't be rushed into too many changes elsewhere.
  • After Ramires and Oscar both netted from the bench in the remarkable 8-0 victory against Villa the Brazilian duo could start.
  • Lampard may be rested having been rushed back into action due to the suspension of John Obi Mikel, who is back available following his ban.
  • John Terry is likely to remain sidelined, while David Luiz could keep his place in midfield after his starring display at the weekend.

Prediction

  • Having only lost 1 of their first 6 Premier League encounters with Chelsea, Norwich haven't beaten the Blues in their last 5 attempts, conceding 14 times in that spell.
  • After their unbelievable win over Villa last time out confidence under Rafa Bentiez is at an all time high and the Londoners will be keen to stay in touch with the top two.
  • Norwich have won their last 5 league games at Carrow Road and only lost one home game all season but they may struggle to bounce back from defeat at the weekend this time out.
