Chelsea have appeared low on energy and attacking spark in their last few games, so we’re not expecting them to give Norwich a hiding in Wednesday’s FA Cup replay.
The Canaries more than held their own against a much-changed Blues line-up at Carrow Road and are also in good form in the Championship.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Since the Carrow Road stalemate, Chelsea have been involved in two more goalless draws versus Arsenal in the EFL Cup and Leicester in the Premier League.
There were boos and whistles from some of the Stamford Bridge faithful on Saturday, as the Foxes held firm despite being reduced to 10 men on 68 minutes.
“We played with tiredness,” commented Antonio Conte. “We have to improve if we want to score and we want to win.”
Conte’s side have looked over-reliant on Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata, who have not scored from open play between them in Chelsea’s past five games.
Looking at the Chelsea vs Norwich odds, 13/10 for under 2.5 goals in the game catches the eye.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich’s squad has been stretched by the departure of Alex Pritchard to Huddersfield and Yanic Wildschut’s loan move to Cardiff, but they dug deep for a 1-0 win at Bristol City over the weekend.
“It was a tough week for us, with two players leaving and some injuries,” said Daniel Farke. “This ranks up there with the best results we have had while I have been in charge.
“Bristol score a lot of goals, yet they hardly had a shot in the first half. We defended really well.”
That made it three wins in a five-match unbeaten run for the Canaries, who have only conceded one goal during that time.
Punters can get 17/5 for City to avoid defeat in normal time here and that is tempting enough to feature in our Chelsea vs Norwich betting tips.
Don’t forget Norwich took Arsenal to extra-time in the EFL Cup at Emirates Stadium!
