Norwich City Form & Team News 

Norwich City secured one of the most notable results of last weekend when they defeated Newcastle United 3-1 at Carrow Road.

Teemu Pukki grabbed a hattrick in the match, taking his total for the season up to four goals. He also grabbed a goal on the opening day away at Liverpool. 

Norwich have been a highly entertaining side under Daniel Farke. The club have seen over 3.5 goals in both of their opening Premier League games and have surprised pundits with their attacking approach to the division. 

Pukki will start up front for the Canaries once again on Saturday. Todd Cantwell supplied two assists for the Finn against Newcastle and will also start again for the team against Chelsea. 

Norwich are valued at 4.33 with bet365 to pick up the victory in what is likely to be a very difficult encounter for the Canaries.

Chelsea Form & Team News 

Frank Lampard has been terribly unlucky not to pick up any wins in his first three competitive games as Chelsea manager. The Blues drew 1-1 at home to Leicester last week despite leading 1-0 for 60 minutes. Mason Mount grabbed the goal for Chelsea on his home debut for the club. 

Mount is likely to be given a start again as Lampard will stick with a similar 11 to the one who earned a point against Chelsea. N'Golo Kante was particularly impressive for the club and appears to be in Lampard's plans more than he was under previous manager Maurizio Sarri. 

Chelsea are favourites to win the match at odds of 1.83 with bet365. The Blues will be desperate to get that all-important first victory and Norwich provide them with the perfect opportunity. 

Chelsea vs Norwich City Analysis- Lampard's men to finally win 

Both Chelsea and Norwich have been highly entertaining sides to watch so far this campaign and their attacking styles of football should provide more entertainment on Saturday afternoon. 

Teemu Pukki is going to be Norwich's star this campaign but they can not rely on him to score every week. Chelsea will be a tougher level of opposition for the team and they should have enough to contain Norwich's attacks. 

Lampard's men are good value to finally pick up their first win of the season and are due a victory after a strong performance last week.

Norwich City vs Chelsea Tips - Goals expected 

Norwich City and Chelsea have seen a total of 14 goals between them in their combined four leagues games so far this season. Norwich have shown that they are not afraid of attacking bigger teams and they will be up for a fight on Saturday afternoon. 

They were exposed defensively against Liverpool on the opening day and the same will happen again here. 

Chelsea to win at 1.80, and a bet on over 2.5 goals at 1.57 are our tips for this game.
