Chelsea, who just saw the club frozen from Roman Abramovich the British government on Thursday, head to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City with hopes of sweeping the season series. They will face off against one another at 2:30 p.m. ET on Thursday. Chelsea have a defense that allows only 0.69 goals per game, so Norwich's offense will have their work cut out for them.
Chelsea got themselves on the board against Burnley this past Saturday, but Burnley never followed suit. Chelsea took their matchup against Burnley by a conclusive 4-0 score. The score was all tied up at the break nothing to nothing, but Chelsea was the better team in the second half.
Meanwhile, the Canaries came up short against Brentford this past Saturday, falling 3-1.
Chelsea's win lifted them to 15-3-8 (third place with 53 points) while Norwich City's loss dropped them down to 4-18-5 (20th place with 17 points). Allowing an average of 2.15 points per game, Norwich have not exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We'll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.
