Chelsea 2/9 to beat Norwich in Wednesday’s FA Cup game
Competition: FA Cup
Market: Chelsea to beat Norwich
There are a number of FA Cup replays taking place this week which will see a cluster of Premier League sides looking to ensure they are not embarrassed by lower-league opposition. With this in mind, Norwich travel to face Chelsea on Wednesday.
Chelsea have been struggling of late as they have found it difficult to break teams down. After 23 games they have won 14, drawn five and lost four, while they have scored 41 goals and conceded 16 times. In their last five they have won twice and drawn three times, with their last two games ending in stalemates. They are currently on 47 points, level with Manchester United, who have a game in hand, and 15 short of Manchester City at the top. Their Premier League title defence is already over, so they will feel that the FA Cup is a very winnable trophy instead.
Norwich have been fairly good in the league this season and they are chasing a way back into the Premier League. After 27 games they have won 10, drawn seven and lost 10, while they have scored 27 goals and conceded 31 times. In their last five they have won three, drawn once and lost once, which has seen them onto 37 points for the season so far. Norwich are currently six points short of the promotion places and in need of a string of wins, and perhaps a morale-boosting win over Chelsea in the FA Cup would set them on the right track.
