Can Chelsea finally win their first win for the season
Can Chelsea finally win their first win for the season? On Saturday Frank Lampard’s team travels to the Carrow Road to face the newcomer Norwich City. Here are our English Premier League prediction tips for this clash from the third round.
Frank Lampard’s career as a Chelsea manager didn’t start exactly like he hoped to. In the first round of the league the Blues got hammered by Manchester United at the Old Trafford, while soon after this Chelsea lost the European Super Cup final against Liverpool. Last week they had a chance to record a first win in the Premier League, but the Europa League champions made a dissapointing 1-1 draw with Leicester City at home.
Chelsea’s fans really hoped that their team will beat the Foxes at the Stamford Bridge for Lampard’s first win as a manager. Well, it didn’t happen. Everything started well because Mason Mount opened the score for the hosts, but Brendan Rodgers’ boys equalised in the second half with a goal from Wilfred Ndidi. One point from two games played – this is where Chelsea stands right now.
Norwich City on the other hand already recorded their first win in the Premier League for the season. In the first round the Canaries lost against Liverpool at the Anfield, but last week the newcomers enjoyed a solid 3-1 win at home over Newcastle United.
The Finnish striker Teemu Pukki once again proved that he remains Norwich’s top finisher, scoring three goals against the Magpies. For two of these goals it was Todd Cantwell who gave the assist. Clearly these two are having a good chemistry between them.
In our English Premier League prediction tips for the game between Norwich City and Chelsea we ca say that it’s looking very unpredictable to us. In the previous round Norwich showed some strenght at home, while Chelsea are still shaping up under Frank Lampard’s management.
