EPL

Norwich 1-3 Chelsea

Fair play to Norwich for making a game of this one, but ultimately is pretty comfortable for Chelsea.

First-half goals from Chalobah and Mount had the Blues in cruise control only for a handball in the area by Chalobah to hand Norwich a chance back into the game, which Pukki calmly took.

Havertz had the final say as Chelsea cements third place in the table.

Starting Lineup:

NORWICH CITY (5-4-1): Tim Krul;

Max Aarons, Christoph Zimmermann, Grant Hanley, Ozan Kabak, Brandon Williams;

Joshua Sargent, Kenny McLean, Mathias Normann, Pierre Lees-Melou; Teemu Pukki.

Goals:

WHAT A START FOR CHELSEA! The Blues earn an early corner from the left after a neat passage of play, and Chalobah flicks home from Mount’s delivery. 1-0 to the visitors.

2-0 to Chelsea, and This Time it’s Mount! It’s far too easy for the visitors again. Werner plays in Havertz in the area, and the Germany star lays it to Mount, who takes a touch out of his feet and rifles high into the right side of the goal. I think you can stick a fork in this one, folk.

LIFELINE TAKEN! PUKKI SCORES! Mendy’s attempts to put the Finland striker off don’t work as he rolls his effort coolly into the bottom-right corner! Norwich still trails 2-1.

BACK OF THE NET! HAVERTZ MAKES IT 3-1 TO CHELSEA THIS ONE IS OVER. Kante does brilliantly work his way into the area and tee up Havertz, who smashes home into the top-left corner. But, as fictional Norwich hero Alan Partridge once said, ‘he’s got a foot like a traction engine!’ – the German attacker walloped that home.

So, what’s next for Chelsea and Norwich?

Things off the pitch are not so sure for Chelsea, and they now have to prepare for a tricky clash at home to resurgent Newcastle United on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Time is fast running out for Norwich, who visit struggling Leeds United on Sunday in a match they simply have to win to have any hope of pulling off the great escape.
