Norwich City will be looking to continue its burst of form on Saturday when it hosts Chelsea at Carrow Road. The match is a crucial fixture for Chelsea, who’ll want full points with both Man United and Tottenham facing tough fixtures this weekend.
Norwich City and Chelsea have met just four times in the past decade. Chelsea has won all of these fixtures, putting 3 or more goals past Norwich in every single match.
Chelsea’s last visit to Carrow Road saw the Blues emerge with a 3-1 victory.
Norwich City comes into Saturday’s match unbeaten in four matches, and with three wins, a draw and a loss from five. The club is currently ranked above all its previous Championship opponents and Premiership graduates on the league table.
Norwich City has scored 9 goals in its last five matches. This excellent display up front has been somewhat undermined by weaker defending, with 6 goals conceded in the same time period.
Meanwhile, Chelsea comes into this fixture with a similar record of three wins, a draw and a loss from five matches, including three wins on the trot. However, the side’s confidence is still shaky after an upset loss at Stamford Bridge to a fired-up Aston Villa.
Chelsea have scored 9 goals in their last five matches. Defence has let in 5 goals in five fixtures, and has maintained clean sheets in its last two.
Chelsea should have the winning of this, but Norwich will have just enough confidence, and Chelsea just enough doubt, to keep things interesting.
While a lay bet on Norwich is one Norwich City vs Chelsea betting tip, our bet is to look at the over/under goal markets. These two sides have scored a cumulative total of 18 goals in five matches, while letting in 11. Furthermore the last four matches between these sides have all produced 4 goals.
A bet on over 2.75 goals being scored therefore looks like the best option for this match.
