How Chelsea could line up against Norwich City

:Headline: How Chelsea could line up against Norwich City:
Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Chelsea will be looking to pick up their first win of the Premier League season when they travel to face Norwich City in Saturday's early kick-off.

After a difficult 4-0 drubbing against Manchester United in Frank Lampard's first competitive game as manager, the Blues lost on penalties to Liverpool in the European Super Cup before drawing 1-1 against Leicester City last Sunday.

The West London club now make the trip face Daniel Farke's Canaries, who picked up their first win of the season last weekend against Newcastle United.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Blues could line up for Saturday's showdown.



Out: Reece James (Ankle), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Calf), Marco van Ginkel (ACL)
Doubtful: Callum Hudson-Odoi (Calf)

Kepa Arrizabalaga is almost certain to keep his place in goal, as are the back four who started last weekend's fixture with Leicester.

The decision to let Davide Zappacosta leave on loan earlier this week should ensure that Cesar Azpilicueta will start the game, while Andreas Christensen overcame the knock he picked up in the Super Cup game to start against the Foxes and he should continue his partnership against Kurt Zouma here.

Antonio Rudiger is continuing his return from injury and is likely to be on the bench for the trip to Norfolk, as is Willian, who stepped up his comeback last week by coming on as a substitute at Stamford Bridge.

Mason Mount's impressive showing against Leicester, which saw him score his first senior goal and create more chances in the final third than any other Chelsea player, should see him keep his place ahead of Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley.

Chelsea looked far more organised and threatening in attack when Olivier Giroud started and therefore Lampard is likely to favour the former Arsenal man over young Tammy Abraham. body check tags ::
