Chelsea

Premier League leaders Chelsea welcome bottom side Norwich City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon in what is expected to be a one-sided affair in west London.

Thomas Tuchel’s men have won six of their eight league matches so far this term and recorded a convincing 4-0 home win against Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The visitors meanwhile are winless with two points from eight games and just two goals scored all season in the Premier League.

The Blues are understandably the shortest priced team to win in the English top flight this weekend with bet365 offering them at just 2/11 (1.18).

Norwich for their part can be backed at 14/1 (15.00) to pick up three points with the draw available at 6/1 (7.00).

The goals have been shared around the Chelsea squad this season with 12 players getting themselves on the scoresheet in the league.

Top scorer is Romelu Lukaku with three strikes but the Belgian will be missing, along with fellow forward Timo Werner.

Kai Havertz is the favourite to break the deadlock at 15/4 (4.75) while Hakim Ziyech is priced at 9/2 (5.50) and Mason Mount at 7/1 (8.00).

Canaries striker Teemu Pukki is offered at 14/1 (15.00) to open the scoring in the capital on Saturday.

The absences of Lukaku and Werner are likely to be felt by the hosts yet that should not discourage punters from investing in a win for the Blues.

The side have shown they are not reliant on their strikers this season for goals with players from all over the pitch chipping in with important strikes.

Against a side devoid of confidence and with the worst goal difference in the division, the European champions should be able to record another victory without too many problems.

The Canaries have the worst attacking record in the Premier League, while Chelsea boast the best defence, so if the hosts can keep another clean sheet, they will surely be able to take one of their chances at the other end to win.

Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals is available at 5/6 (1.83) and looks like a shrewd way to get the well-fancied hosts onside.
