Chelsea host Norwich City on Tuesday, July 14th at Stamford Bridge in what is going to be a season-defining match for Chelsea. Will Chelsea be able to maintain their top 4 spot, or will Norwich put them in a position where they could fall out of Champions League qualification?
Norwich City has been officially relegated, having only won 5 games in 35 this season. Norwich started the season out so well, beating the likes of Manchester City and even being top of the table after a few games. Norwich looked like they would be a solid team, especially with the quality of Timeu Pukki upfront. However, after the honeymoon phase of entering the Premier League ended, Norwich found themselves at the bottom. Norwich just do not have the quality to play in the Premier League and it was inevitable that they would get relegated. Norwich has 3 games left now to play in a league which they will be leaving, will they try and make a statement or will they just give up as they have no mathematical chance of remaining in the Premier League?
Chelsea last two performances have been quite shocking. Although two matches ago Chelsea won 3-2 against Crystal Palace, the fact they let 2 goals past their goalkeeper to Palace was a sign of danger. Chelsea followed that performance up by losing 3-0 to Sheffield United. This was one of the most shocking losses for the club this season. Sheffield United is a tough club to beat, and they have had solid performances recently, beating Tottenham a couple weeks ago 3-1. However, Chelsea are fighting to maintain their top 4 spot in the league and you would expect Frank Lampard's men to be more solid in their defense. Now that Manchester City's Champions League ban has been lifted, Chelsea needs to make sure they stay in the top 4, otherwise they will not qualify.
The reverse fixture between these two sides ended in a 3-2 Chelsea victory. I see Chelsea bouncing back in style here and absolutely dominating the match. Norwich have nothing left, and I mean nothing. They do not have any chance of remaining in the Premier League and I would be shocked if they gave it even 50% of their usual effort. Take Chelsea to win this match like 4-0.
