Norwich City vs. Chelsea Preview
Tenth place Norwich City host Chelsea at Carrow Road on Wednesday, hoping to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to West Brom, their first in eleven matches.
The Canaries have only lost once in their eight home games so far this season, and have won their last five games in front of their own fans.
Chris Hughton will be hoping club captain Grant Holt can recover in time to feature but Steven Whittaker, John Ruddy, Andrew Surman and Ryan Bennet will all miss out.
Robert Snodgrass has got three goals in his last five games, and the midfielder is widely available at 12.0 (11/1) to score first here.
The home win is generously on offer at 6.0 (5/1) with most firms, with Chelsea odds on at a best price of 1.67 (4/6) with Paddy Power. The draw is 4.1 (31/10) with Bet Victor.
Chelsea go into the game having won five of their last six games, including their 8-0 hammering of Aston Villa last time out.
John Mikel Obi is available for selection following suspension, though John Terry and Ryan Bertrand are unlikely to be fit in time to feature.
Fernando Torres began Sunday’s rout with his fourteenth goal of the season, and the Spaniard is the 6.0 (5/1) favourite to get the scoring underway again.
There were five goals the last time these two sides met, and with the visitors in such goal scoring form you might be tempted to take advantage of Bet Victor’s offer of 5.5 (9/2) for there to be over 4.5 again.
