Chelsea v Norwich City Preview, Premiership, Sunday 4th May 2014

Chelsea head into this game having beat Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield last weekend which but them back in the hunt for the Premier league title, however they remain outsiders as they trail the leaders by two points going into the final two games, but they at least have a chance of winning the title.

They will be keen to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals and finish the season strongly by winning their remaining two games. Their form has been patchy in the league of late having won four and lost three out of their last seven matches.

Norwich head in to this game having lost five games on the bounce and Their survival chances are looking slim, as they face Arsenal on the final day of the season. One thinks if they are to survive, they need to follow in the footsteps of relegation rivals Sunderland and get a result at Stamford Bridge, which in my opinion is very unlikely.

Chelsea Team News:

Jose Mourinho will be delighted as he only has one injury going into this fixture with goalkeeper Cech suffering from a dislocated shoulder. Fernando Torres will probably lead the line up front as he scored in his last game. Chelsea have no players suspended.

Norwich City Team News:

Norwich will be without midfielder Pilkington who is out for the season with a thigh/hip injury. Defender Joseph Yobo will face a late fitness test before Sunday’s game. Norwich also head into this game with no suspensions.

Chelsea v Norwich City Head to Head Statistics:

Sundays match from Stamford Bridge will become the 35th meeting between the two clubs over the years. Chelsea have won 18 (8 coming at Stamford Bridge), Norwich City have won 10 (4 coming at Stamford Bridge) and there has been 11 draws (5 coming at Stamford Bridge).

The head to head statistics table below shows the previous 5 meetings between the two clubs. Chelsea have a commanding advantage over Norwich having won four times with the other game being a draw.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

89 Goals have been scored in the previous 34 matches played between the two clubs, which provides us with an average goal per game statistic of 2.61.

51 of those goals have been scored in the 17 matches played between the two clubs at Stamford Bridge, which generates us an average goals per game statistic of 3.00.

Both average goals per game statistics seem to suggest that this game on Sunday evening we should see between 2 or 3 goals scored.

As we can see above Chelsea have a commanding lead over Norwich as they have won twice, lost twice and drew just the once. Norwich City have a dreadful return from their previous five games as they have lost all five, which is why they find themselves in the bottom three.

Chelsea v Norwich City Match Betting Odds Market

Chelsea must win this game if they are to keep their title hopes alive and with Norwich in such bad form then its no real surprise to see the bookmakers offer them up at the best price of 2/9 with Coral (Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is an unlikely event in this fixture as there has only been one draw in the previous five meeting between the two clubs. The best price currently available is 13/2 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers).

Norwich City have lost their last five games and are really struggling to score goals at the moment. With Chelsea still hoping to win the title I cant see Norwich getting anything from this game and it seems the bookmakers agree as they are offering up a best price of 16/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Chelsea v Norwich City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

If Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea players are to win the title then they need to win this game and their next game, however they would need Liverpool and Manchester City both to slip up which in my opinion is highly unlikely.

Norwich City have no real hope in this fixture as they have not won once in their last five against Chelsea. They have lost five games on the bounce and because of that they find themselves in 18th position in the Premier League table, which would see them relegated if they were to stay there.

Looking at all the statistics I believe we should see between 2 or 3 goals scored in the match, however with Chelsea looking to bounce back from their Champions league exit then I have strong inkling of them scoring 3 or 4 goals on Sunday evening.

Onto some prediction and my Banker for this game is going to be the game to see Over 3.5 goals as I can certainly see Chelsea scoring quite a few goals in this match.

My Saver for this game has been quite tricky but I have chosen a correct score group bet which is Chelsea to win 3-0 3-1 or 4-1 as with Norwich City in terrible form and having lost all of their last five games this should be an easy victory for the Jose Mourinho’s side come sunday evening.
