Norwich City are in the midst of a dog fight to avoid relegation, they face a tough Chelsea team here on Tuesday night who have only lost once since Jose Mourhino left and that was to high flying PSG in the Champions League. Chelsea came from behind to beat Southampton in Saint Mary's at the weekend with Diego Costa and ivanovich netting th goals but Cesc Fabregas providing the inspiration. Chelsea have definitely caught fire at the right time and they are going to play the spoiler coming down the stretch with games against alot of the big teams who are gunning for the title. With Hiddink in charge Chelsea have looked a good prospect to push on and finish in the top half and maybe even in the top six, the FA Cup looks a real possibility and the Champions League and outside shot. Would anyone right the blues off right now, they would be silly to do so.
On the other side we have a Norwich side that were promoted through the playoffs last season, it appears like their prudent approach to the season is backfiring a little with the depth of the squad being exposed. Robbie Brady was brought in from Hull and he has been among their bet performers this season along with fellow Republic of Ireland international Wes Hoolohan. This is a side that lack that killer touch to finish games off but they have also been on the side of some unlucky results with Saturday's last gasp loss to league leaders Leicester a prime example. Norwich were the better side for long periods of that game but they couldnt finish, Jerome, Mbokani and Redmond have not been clinical enough and January signing Stephen Naismith is needing some time to settle although he did net a hat trick against Chelsea earlier in the season (for Everton).
This one to me anyway looks like a nailed on away win. Given the odds are generous at 7/10 I'm not going to over think it just going to take the value and go with Chelsea to get the win here.
