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:

Chelsea vs Norwich

  • Chelsea: Mendy, Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger, James, Kovacic, Jorginho, Chilwell, Mount, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi
  • Norwich: Krul, Hanley, Kabak, Gibson, Aarons, Lees-Melou, McLean, Normann, Giannoulis, Pukki, Sargent

Chelsea 0 – 0 Norwich

12:32 , Michael Jones

Kick off: There’s a minute applause for Matthew Harding, the players then take the knee to continue raising awareness for racial equality.

Kai Havertz gets the ball rolling for Chelsea who work it up the right side of the pitch. Grant Hanley intercepts for Norwich who pass it up to Josh Sargent. His first touch is poor and the ball rolls away from the forward and back into Chelsea’s possession.

The players make their way out onto the pitch. Chelsea are big, big favourites. It’s top of the league vs bottom of the league. Can Norwich pull off a surprising and unlikely victory?

Thomas Tuchel’s pre-match thoughts

12:14 , Michael Jones

Thomas Tuchel was asked whether Chelsea being heavy favourites to win today had any effect on his players and he told BT Sport:

It has been the same the last three matches and we coped well, it has not affected our attitude. When we wear the shirt we want to meet the standards. We don’t care about being favourites or underdogs we do our thing, the best way possible.

“The message is clear – the guys have been waiting a long time for their chance, we have a strong squad. It is a team effort and we have a lot of trust in the quality.

“The way for them to stay in the league is to not concede. Daniel Farke is a very nice guy but I don’t want to help him today.”

Chelsea’s strong defence

12:10 , Michael Jones

Chelsea have lost four home games in the Premier League in 2021. They haven’t had five defeats in a calendar year since 1995.

But, they have the joint-best defence in the division this season, conceding just three goals, the same amount as Manchester City.

Norwich’s struggles

12:06 , Michael Jones

Daniel Farke’s side have two points after eight games. Only two teams have fared as badly after nine Premier League matches and gone on to avoid relegation.

Norwich are also struggling to score goals. Their most recent away goal in the Premier League was scored by Emiliano Buendia against Watford in July 2020 with Buendia now playing for Aston Villa.

Daniel Farke’s pre-match thoughts

12:02 , Michael Jones

Daniel Farke spoke to BT Sport before kick off saying that if his side can be defensively solid today they have every chance of shocking Chelsea. He said:

That is why we love the game so much, nothing is guaranteed. We want to give a top performance and give ourselves a chance.

“The first objective is to be rock solid at the back. Today it won’t be that easy but we have a chance.”

Ominous signs for Norwich

11:58 , Michael Jones

Norwich haven’t won in 18 Premier League matches, scoring just three goals with two draws and 16 defeats in that time. They are also winless in their last 16 top-flight away fixtures (three draw, 13 defeats).

Not exactly the kind of form you want to be in heading to Stamford Bridge.

A sign of things to come?

11:55 , Michael Jones

Chelsea are vying to win six of their first nine league matches for the first time since 2014 under Jose Mourinho. They went on to win the title that season. Will they do so again this year?

Farke on Chelsea

11:51 , Michael Jones

Norwich boss, Daniel Farke, says it will incredibly difficult for his team to create chances against Chelsea and that if they want to earn a result today his team have to be ‘unbelievably clinical’ in front of goal. He said:

Let’s be honest it will be difficult to create even more chances against Chelsea who have been rock solid since Thomas Tuchel took over and have kept many, many clean sheets.

“It will not be easy to score against them, so we have to be unbelievably clinical and unbelievably effective in using the chances, but if I have to judge our game at the moment the only bit that is missing is to bring the ball over the line.”

Head-to-head: Chelsea vs Norwich

11:46 , Michael Jones

Chelsea haven’t lost in 17 meetings between these two sides. They’ve won 12 and lost five in a run that stretches back to 1994.

Defeat today would see Norwich equal their longest losing streak in the Premier League against a single opponent – matching the five defeats in a row against Wimbledon and Liverpool.

Romelu Lukaku ruled out injured for two games by Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel

11:42 , Michael Jones

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Romelu Lukaku will miss the next two games for Chelsea through injury.

The Belgian was injured while winning a penalty for the Blues in the 4-0 victory over Malmo in the Champions League midweek.

And now the European champions will have to make do without their No 9 against Norwich on Saturday and next week’s Carabao Cup tie with Southampton on Tuesday, 26th October.

Thomas Tuchel gives Romelu Lukaku injury update

Team changes – Chelsea vs Norwich

11:38 , Michael Jones

Thomas Tuchel makes five changes to the Chelsea starting XI that lined up against Malmo during the week. Trevor Chalobah slots into the back line replacing Andreas Christensen, Reece James takes over at right wingback from Cesar Azpilicueta whilst Mateo Kovacic partners Jorginho in midfield. Up top Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are out which means starts for Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Daniel Farke meanwhile names an unchanged team from Norwich’s 0-0 draw with Brighton last time out. The only change in personnel comes on the bench as Jacob Sorensen replaces the ineligible Billy Gilmour.

Line-ups: Chelsea vs Norwich

Tuchel on Lukaku and Werner injuries

11:25 , Michael Jones

Thomas Tuchel gave an update on the injuries to strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner saying that both players will be out for at least two matches if not longer but he did not want to speculate on the actual length of their recoveries saying:

There is no big news for Romelu[Lukaku] and Timo [Werner]. They are out for tomorrow and they are out for the Southampton game, and from there we see what’s next.

“I don’t think it makes sense to go into speculation about how long this is going to be. If we had done this with Christian Pulisic, maybe you would think I’m a liar and I’m hiding something. You never know. Things can be shorter or longer than expected.

“The one thing I can tell you for sure is they are both in treatment. Both are feeling positive, not too worried, and are out for the next two games for sure.”

Recent results – Chelsea vs Norwich

11:21 , Michael Jones

Chelsea have a one-point lead over Liverpool as they sit top of the table, only dropping points against the Reds (1-1 draw) and Manchester City (1-0 defeat) this term. Thomas Tuchel’s men have only conceded three goals in their eight games so far making them one of the hardest teams to break down.

Norwich are bottom of the Premier League but they haven’t lost either of their last two games. Both matches, against Burnley and Brighton, ended in goalless draws and earned Norwich their first points of the season after a run of seven consecutive league defeats.

Early team news – Chelsea vs Norwich

11:15 , Michael Jones

Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both picked up injuries during Chelsea’s midweek win over Malmo and won’t feature today meaning Kai Havertz is likely to start. Also absent for the Blues is Christian Pulisic who is still recovering from an ankle injury.

Billy Gilmour can’t play for Norwich as he is ineligible to face his parent club after joining the Canaries on loan from Chelsea. Todd Cantwell, Sam Byron and Christoph Zimmermann remain sidelined with Przemyslaw Placheta lack match fitness.

High-flying Chelsea host rock-bottom Norwich

09:28 , Michael Jones

Welcome to The Independent’s live coverage as Premier League leaders Chelsea host rock-bottom Norwich in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are overwhelming favourites heading into the fixture, however, they will have to make do without both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner after the pair suffered injuries during the Blues’ victory against Malmo in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Norwich are searching desperately for a first win of the season, having earned just two points so far, with the alarm bells ringing resoundingly already.
