CHE vs NOR Dream11 Team Prediction Tips For Chelsea vs Norwich City Premier League Live Score 23 October


CHE vs NOR Dream11: Opposite ends of the table meet as Chelsea host Norwich in Saturday’s early kickoff. The reigning European Champions are top of the Premier League, despite not being at their best yet. They head into this game following a narrow 1-0 victory over Brentford. The Bees gave them quite a scare especially in the final fifteen minutes but Ben Chilwell’s volley was enough to secure all three points.

Unsurprisingly, Norwich are rock bottom of the table and are conceding chances for fun. They have managed just two draws so far in eight games. They have not scored in the last four games head into this game following back-to-back goalless draws against Burnley and Brighton.

Date: 23 October, Saturday
Kick-Off: 05:00 PM (IST)

Likely Winner:

  • Chelsea has not lost against Norwich City in 17 encounters dating back to 1994. (W12 D5).
  • For the first time since Jose Mourinho took over at Stamford Bridge in 2014, Chelsea is attempting to win six of its opening nine league matches. That season, the Blues won the championship.
  • Norwich has lost 18 Premier League games in a row and has only scored three goals throughout that time (D2 L16). The Canaries have also failed to win any of their past 16 Premier League away games (D3 L13).
  • After eight games, Norwich has two points. Only two clubs have had such a poor start to the Premier League season yet avoided relegation. The Canaries are the only Premier League club that has yet to take the lead this season.
  • Chelsea has the league’s joint-best defence this season, surrendering only three goals. Emiliano Buendia, on the other hand, scored Norwich’s most recent Premier League away goal against Watford in July 2020.
  • Chelsea should win the match comfortably and extend their lead at the top.
