Norwich City vs Chelsea Pre-match analysis & betting predictions

Don’t try to deny it! A little bit of FA Cup betting magic is always a good idea.

Chelsea travels to Carrow road having the intriguing Premier League rendezvous with Arsenal still fresh in their minds. The Blues failed to hold on to their lead and with just seconds to go, conceded a close ranged screamer from Hector Bellerin. Nevertheless, Antonio Conte’s side is in good form, sitting 3rd, just a point behind Man Utd.

Norwich City goes into this one after overcoming a goal deficit to earn full three points against Millwall in the Championship.

Head to head

The first recognized competitive match between both sides was a first leg encounter in the 1936 FA Cup edition. It finished 1:1!

You’ll have to look way back in the history books to find the last time Norwich City beat Chelsea in a game of football. However, since their previous victory in 1994, The Canaries lost 10 and drew three times against The Blues and will be hoping to end such a dismal run finally.

On the other hand, it is equally crucial for Chelsea to win this one and get back to the winning ways as quickly as possible.

Team news

With game schedule becoming more and more compact, it would be ludicrous not to expect different Chelsea XI then the one fielded in against The Gunners.

Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata will almost certainly sit this one out while Spanish trio: Fabregas, Azpilicueta, and Alonso are also predicted to play no part in this match. Still, David Luiz could make a rare appearance after being absent for over two months with a severe knee injury.

In the opposite camp, Cameron Jerome is expected to feature after fully recovering from a back injury.


To sum up, Chelsea is currently remarkably superior to Norwich City.

The Canaries are already having a disappointing season and might prefer to save energy for the remainder of their Championship campaign.

With this in mind, anything other than a victory for the Blues would be a big surprise.
