IT’S top vs bottom as Premier League leaders Chelsea kick off the weekend at home to basement club Norwich.
The Blues will expect nothing less than a win against the Canaries, even though they’ll have to deliver the points without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.

Chelsea will be without Romelu Lukkau, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic, which means Kai Havertz will start up top.
Callum Hudson-Odou could flank the German, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek expected to keep his place in midfield.
Mason Mount could make the first XI once again, with Reece James set to come in at right-wing back, with Cesar Azpilicueta to shift into a back three.
Trevoh Chalobah may also play in a back three.
