Chelsea vs Norwich City Prediction and Betting Preview 14 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Following their promotion from the Championship a year ago, Norwich City’s awful performances this season in the Premier League has returned them back to square one. Dead-last on the standings, the Canaries have clearly been the worst side in the league.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 36
Kick-off:
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London)
Having clinched the Championship title last season, the Canaries were touted to have a fruitful journey in top-flight football this term. With Teemu Pukki firing on all cylinders and Cantwell pulling the strings in midfield, a midtable finish had seemed befitting for this Norwich side.

However, with three league games left to play, Norwich’s relegation to the Championship is already confirmed. Garnering a measly 21 points so far, they are a whopping 13 points from safety. Mathematically, they are already relegated – the first PL side to make the drop this term.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are still pushing for a ticket to next season’s edition of the Champions League. Following the upturn of Manchester City’s two-year Champions League ban, it has become imperative for the Blues to finish within top-four to qualify for Europe’s elite competition.

With a game against Championship-bound Norwich City on the cards, Frank Lampard’s charges are huge favorites to come away with the win.

Being one of the better sides in the Premier League this season, Chelsea had always been favorites for a Champions League place finish. Well on-course to achieving that, the Blues have now thrown their qualification hopes up in flames.

Looking to strengthen their hold on third-place, Chelsea were faced with the task of toppling tricky opposition Sheffield United on the last matchday. The likes of Leicester City and Manchester United must have been rooting for a Sheffield win to gain grounds on the Blues.

Right from kick-off, Chelsea looked a shadow of their former rampant selves, struggling to assert their dominance on the game. You’d think you were watching a second-string Blues side as they were hammered 3-0 by top-six chasing Sheffield United.

Last time out, Norwich City knew their fates was about to be decided as they stepped out of the tunnel of Carrow Road to take on high-flying West Ham United. They needed a win at all costs to keep their survival hopes up.

However, it turned out to be another bad day at the office for the Canaries as they were sent back to the Championship by a rampant West Ham side who fired four unanswered goals past them. It was a day to forget for Daniel Farke and his men.

For this fixture, it goes without saying that Chelsea are huge favorites for the win. Following their slip-up against Sheffield a few days ago, their top-four hopes are hanging on a thin thread. Should Manchester United overpower Southampton on Monday night, the Blues will drop down to fourth.

Surely, they cannot afford any other blip in form over the coming weeks and will be gunning for victory over a Norwich side with no motivation to play. With Leicester City lurking around the corner, the Pensioners need nothing less than a victory come kickoff.

Chelsea vs Norwich Predictions

Norwich City’s relegation status is already confirmed and the Canaries will have no extra drive to go for gold in this fixture. In sharp contrast, Chelsea are desperate for a win to retain their spot within the top-four mix. As such, expect a very comfortable win for Frank Lampard’s men here. Also, they should grab a couple of goals before the sound of the final whistle.
