Chelsea hosts Norwich City
Chelsea hosts Norwich City at the Stamford Bridge in a fixture from the 9th round of the Premier League. Here we go with our football best betting tips for the day.
You can be sure that Chelsea like their current position in the standings. The European champions are leading the table with 19 points won from 8 matches played. This puts them just one point ahead of the second Liverpool so beating Norwich on Saturday is a must. It’d be quite a shocker if Thomas Tuchel’s team fails against a club at the bottom of the standings.
Last weekend Chelsea enjoyed their 6th win for the season. The Blues had a tough visit to Brentford, but they managed to secure a 1-0 win at the Brentford Community Stadium. Quite surprising, but the left-back Ben Chilwell scored the only goal in the 45h minute of the game. Romelu Lukaku also scored, but his goal was disallowed because of an offside.
During the week Chelsea had a game in the Champions League as well, so the manager should think how to rotate the team and keep the players as fresh as possible.
The influential midfielder Jorginho started from the bench against Brentford, but we expect to see him on the pitch in the next game. The Italian international is too important to be kept outside the pitch. He was rested after the international break, but the team will need him in the next few matches. Meanwhile Christian Pulisic remains injured and out of the team, but he should come back in action soon.
Norwich City continue to struggle at the bottom of the Premier League standings. The Canaries are 20th in the table with just two points won and no win from the start of the campaign. Two draws and six losses – that’s how Daniel Farke’s team is doing so far.
In their last game Norwich City at least won a point – they made a second consecutive draw in the league. This time they faced Brighton & Hove Albion at home and the game ended with no goals – 0-0.
That’s the football best betting tips for the Premier League showdown between Chelsea and Norwich City in the English capital. The Blues are superior than their next opponent and they should win comfortably, but don’t forget – there are no easy games in the Prem. Chelsea must be focused and willing to play at one hundred percent – just to be sure.
