Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Norwich City


Is there a man in football in bigger need of a win right now than Chelsea FC manager Frank Lampard? Is there any individual footballer in need of a massive individual performance than Christian Pulisic- the only major signing Chelsea was able to make in 2019?

Life after Eden Hazard has proven to be as hard and the most pessimistic Blues fans have imagined. There is certainly some degree of panic in the Chelsea supporter base right now, both over Lampard/the general direction of the club and whether Pulisic will reach his potential or not with the Blues. The good news for Chelsea is they are heavily favored in their next match, a league road clash at Norwich City.

For the Chelsea team news and fitness report go here.

Lampard could make a couple switches here with his lineup, taking the struggling Olivier Giroud out, and inserting the embattled and victimized Tammy Abraham instead. Also, Mason Mount, Vanilla Ice style haircut and all, could come in for Mateo Kovacic.

    chelsea is playing good game but they really need to work on converting there opportunity and they need to work on the defense. I give it to chelsea straight win. maybe 2-3 goals to none

    Have been a Chelsea supporter over 14 years now, Chelsea are doing well but need a tactical first 11 and a better sub to make the game balanced both the first half and the second. Tammy need to start, while Oliver comes in second half, mason to start and Barkley or kovasic second half, for William should come in second half for either pulisic OE Pedro and let’s see how the game will end. Good work Frank time will show your effort, I know so.
