Premier League – Norwich City-Chelsea
Norwich City hosts Chelsea in a match from the 3rd round of the FA Cup. The game is going to be played at the Carrow Road in Norwich on Saturday evening.
Norwich are currently 13th in the Championship standings. They have 34 points won so far and a record of 9 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses. So far they are not doing very well in their task of returning to the Premier League, but we have to say that they are in a good run in the last three games. They have won twice and made one draw, winning 7 points out of 9. Let’s see if they are going to be able to continue with their good performance against a side with Chelsea’s quality as well.
Speaking of Chelsea, Antonio Conte’s team is currently 3rd in the Premier League at the moment. They are unbeaten in their last five matches, winning three of them. The FA Cup is an important competition for Chelsea, because it could be their only opportunity to win a trophy this season. Much or less, the Blues already lost their chances of winning the title and winning the Champions League is always something hard to be predicted.
It’s obvious that Chelsea are the big favourite here, but we shall all remember that FA Cup is the competition of the big surprises. It’s not a rarety to see the giants losing matches in this tournament. And this is why the FA Cup is so interesting for the fans.
Norwich’s goal in this clash is going to be at least a draw, which will guarantee them the opportunity for a second game in London. As for Chelsea, it’s clear what their ambition would be in this game – winning it now and qualifying for the next round without a second match.
