Chelsea vs Norwich LIVE: Premier League updates


Thomas Tuchel gives injury updates on Chelsea duo Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner

Follow all the action as Chelsea host Norwich City in the Premier League in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Thomas Tuchel’s side enters the weekend top of the table, having taken 19 points from a possible 24 this season, and are full of confidence after sweeping aside Malmo in the Champions League during the week. Their victory was marred by significant injury blows, though, with both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner ruled out. That means Kai Havertz should return to the starting XI while Callum Hudson-Odoi will have a rare chance to impress from the outset. “It’s only a turning point if he makes it a turning point – and only if he does not only do one good match, one good half, 60 good minutes, but if he does it consistently,” Tuchel said of the winger.

Meanwhile, Norwich have endured a difficult start upon their return to the top-flight. The Canaries are bottom of the table, having lost six out of eight matches, and are yet to secure a victory. To break that streak this afternoon, it will take a truly momentous performance. Follow all the latest updates below:

54 mins: Havertz makes a run into the inside right pocket as Jorginho picks him out with a through ball. He runs into the right side of the area and shoots but Hanely gets across and blocks the ball out for a corner.

Norwich defend the set piece and work the ball down the pitch. Chilwell is sends a poor pass back towards Mendy but Rashica intercepts and shimmies into the box. Mendy’s come out to receive the pass so the goal is wide open. Rashica shoots but Mendy slides across to stop the shot with an outstretched leg. Great goalkeeping.

Chelsea 3 – 0 Norwich

Where do Norwich go from here? They’ve lost the game, Chelsea have only conceded three goals in the league all season and Norwich at least four to win.

Does Daniel Farke tell his team to go for it? Or is it a damage limitation job?

Mount, Hudson-Odoi and James all find the target for Chelsea in the first half. They’ll be extending their lead at the top of the table unless Norwich can somehow pull off a miracle.

Half-time: Chelsea 3 – 0 Norwich

45+1 mins: Three goals in that first half for Chelsea and they head into half-time with the points all but secured. It could yet get worse for Norwich who have been passive and unthreatening. The match is a glorified training session for Chelsea. Norwich need to try something different.

45 mins: Just one minute of added time to play. Norwich will want to get into the break.
