Chelsea hosts Norwich City at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, as the English Premier League action heads to the homestretch.

The Blues will try to recover from a 0-3 loss at the hands of Sheffield United last weekend. Chelsea is still in third place but Leicester City and Manchester United both have a chance to overtake in the team standings with their games on Sunday and Monday, respectively. Meanwhile, Norwich City a dropped 0-4 contest to West Ham United in their last outing. The loss formalized their relegation from England’s top flight and they will be playing three more games before getting relegated for a record 5th time in the EPLC. The Canaries have lost their last eight games overall and they have scored only one goal since the resumption of the English Premier League action.

Soccer Norwich City

Norwich City is currently in the bottom of the English Premier League standings and they have a record 5-6-24 with only a total of 21 points earned this season. The Canaries were officially relegated after losing last weekend and they now have three games left to play in the English top-flight, including Tuesday’s match against Chelsea.

The Canaries suffered a 0-4 beating at the hands of West Ham United last Saturday. Michail Antonio scored four goals at Carrow Road to give the visitors all three points and send the Canaries to a record fifth relegation from the Premier League. Norwich City controlled 52% of ball possession but only had two shots on goal compared to West Ham’s seven.

Teemu Pukki leads Norwich City with a total of 11 goals scored this season. Todd Cantwell has found the back of the net six times this year while Emiliano Buendia leads the team in passing with a total of 7 assists with one goal scored. Pukki and Cantwell have also contributed in passing with a total of 3 and 2 assists, respectively.

The Canaries are the worst team in the Premier League in almost every statistical category. They have scored only a total of 26 goals this term while allowing opponents to score 67 times. Their goal difference of -41 is also dead-last in England and their total assists of 18 are at the bottom of the leaderboard.

Soccer Who Wins?

Chelsea will be without Billy Gilmour for this match due to a knee injury. However, N’Golo Kante and Fikayo Tomoro are both in line to make a return. There are concerns on Kante as he could be saved for Chelsea’s FA Cup semifinals against Manchester United on July 19th, especially with Frank Lampard ruled out for the big match with a hamstring issue.

Mateo Kovacic was on the bench during the Sheffield match but the Croatia international could return to the starting XI on Tuesday. Likewise, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, and Olivier Giroud are also in contention to feature in the starting line-up.

As for Norwich City, Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann, Moritz Leitner, and Sam Bryan are still out of action for the Canaries. Tod Cantwell should return to the starting XI after coming off the bench against the Hammers. Kenny McLean is also expected to feature in the middle of the field. Teemu Pukki should lead the line but he hasn’t scored a goal since January.

Chelsea will be dying to return to their winning ways after their disappointing loss at Bramall Lane last Saturday. Norwich City has struggled in recent weeks and it’s difficult to back the home team here.

Chelsea wants a Top 3 finish and I don’t think they will mess around here. I don’t think that the question here is who wins but by how many goals. There’s not much value in Chelsea at -714 right now but if you ask me about the winner, I will say it’s Chelsea.

Prediction: Chelsea for me but I’d rather take the alternate bet below.
