The Premier League action continues on Saturday as Norwich vs Chelsea takes place at Carrow Road. The hosts will look to build on last week’s result in front of their home fans.

Norwich vs Chelsea Prediction & Match Preview

Saturday, August 24 – 07:30 EST – Carrow Road

Last week, Norwich impressed the home fans after beating Newcastle 3-1. Their striker Teemu Pukki managed to find the back of the net three times. The Finnish striker will look to replicate his performance against the Blues on Saturday. On that note, the home side will look to boost their confidence and get another positive result at Carrow Road. However, the last time that Norwich defeated Chelsea was in the 1994/95 season. Will they be able to put history aside and capitalize on Chelsea’s poor form?

On the other hand, the Blues still can’t catch a break. After having dropped their opening fixture against Manchester United and the UEFA Super Cup against Liverpool, the team managed by Frank Lampard had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Leicester City. Mason Mount opened the scoring for the home side in the first half. However, a goal from Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi in the 67th minute denied Chelsea their first win under their new manager. Confidence is not the strongest point of this team, however they have always managed to bounce back from such situations. They will need to regroup and have a similar performance like the one against Liverpool in order to get out of this negative moment. We believe it’s time that Chelsea get their first win of the season as they hope that their positive record against Norwich will continue on Saturday.
