    CHE vs NOR Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups


    If the chastening 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford was an early reminder about the enormity of the task facing the new manager at Stamford Bridge, the last two games gauged into what we can expect from Frank Lampard’s team in the immediate future.

    But time is a luxury, even Lampard, the Chelsea legend and the fan-favorite, can’t afford at SW6. If the results are not consistent, the approach to the game and the intent of the players can take Lampard only so far in his managerial career at this club. For a team of the magnitude of Chelsea, there are certain targets which have to be achieved. And failing to do so, falling behind in a specific time period, and you can be sure that Roman Abramovich won’t take long to take a harsh decision.

    It’s a very crucial game for the Blues as they face Norwich City at Carrow Road. The Canaries can be or will be, the banana skin for Lampard’s team. They troubled Liverpool at Anfield at times and blew away Newcastle United last weekend.

    Match Details:

    The Premier League match will be played between Norwich City and Chelsea at Carrow Road, in Norwich, Norfolk, England. The ground has a capacity of 27,244.
    The game will start at 05:00 PM (IST), on Saturday, August 24.

    Possible ins or outs of this game:

    Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

    Teemu Pukki: Currently the joint top-scorer in the Premier League. The 29-year-old scored at Anfield and recorded a brilliant hattrick as well in the last game to continue on an incredible run for the Canaries.

    With Chelsea not at their best, Pukki has all the reasons to feel optimistic for his chances to add to his goal tally.

    Last season in the Championship:

    • Games: 43
    • Goals: 29
    • Assists: 09

    In the 2019-20 Premier League:

    • Games: 02
    • Goals: 04

    Emiliano Buendia: It’s hard to see beyond Teemu Pukki for goals, but Norwich have a quality player in Emiliano Buendia who can affect the game with his game.

    He recorded 12 assists last season in the Championship and is a vital cog in this team.

    Last season in the Championship:

    • Games: 38
    • Goals: 08
    • Assists: 12

    More players from Norwich City who could affect the game:

    • Tom Trybull
    • Todd Cantwell
    • Marco Stiepermann

    Olivier Giroud: Did everything other than scoring a goal against Leicester City. The former Arsenal star is the most experienced striker in this team and is a proven goal scorer.

    Last season:

    • Games: 45
    • Goals: 14
    • Assists: 08

    Willian: Chelsea’s new no-10 knows the pressure is on him to fill the big boots of Eden Hazard. He is capable enough to meet the expectations, for his quality and the skills set is at par with most of his teammates at Stamford Bridge.

    Last season:

    • Games: 47
    • Goals: 06
    • Assists: 13

    More players from Chelsea who could affect the game:

    • N’Golo Kante
    • Mason Mount
