Chelsea and Jose Mourinho return to Premier League action after two weeks’ absence from the limelight. No one has forgotten the kind of season Blues have had so far and that is why, Chelsea need a quick start against Norwich this weekend. Ahead of the kick-off at Stamford Bridge, we take a look at the Predicted Chelsea Lineup vs Norwich, which sees Pedro and Oscar getting the chop.
Predicted Chelsea Lineup vs Norwich
Asmir Begovic has kept 5 clean sheets in 15 appearances for the club and the Bosnian should continue in goal for Chelsea this weekend as well. The man making his return to the lineup is Branislav Ivanovic. The Serbian was deemed Chelsea’s worse player the beginning of this season, however, with some time away from the game, we might see him getting back to his best.
Chelsea’s midfield these days is often about whether to Cesc Fabregas play in deeper role or as number 10. Well, this week against Norwich, Fabregas will need to pick up out cute passes to feed his attackers. That is why Nemanja Matic and Ramires will continue to forge their strong partnership in central midfield.
As for the men attacking the goal, Willian will once again be asked to be at his best. Brazilian was in great form during International games midweek and he would look to continue that form against Norwich as well. Eden Hazard has always drawn an opinion everytime he has gone out on the pitch. He will once again lead Chelsea’s attack from the left wing with Diego Costa playing on his own.
One cannot underline the importance of this game for Chelsea’s and Mourinho’s season. Another poor result and everyone will start wondering where this season is headed for the reigning Premier League Champions. Meanwhile Jose should also understand that, his support will not last longer if Chelsea continue to lose matches.
