How to watch Chelsea vs Norwich Premier League match in Australia
Winless Norwich venture to Stamford Bridge to take on the rampaging Chelsea in a fascinating Premier League match-up.
Chelsea kept their fifth clean sheet of the season in just 8 matches when they held out Brentford.
The 1-0 victory secured top spot on the Premier League table and it came via Ben Chillwell, who in the 45th minute converted his team's only shot on target for the entire match.
Brentford would have walked away frustrated having generated 17 shots to 5 and 7 shots on target of their own. Chelsea keeper Édouard Mendy was man of the match.
Norwich picked up just their second point of the season in a nil-nil draw with Brighton, but they were beaten nearly 2–1 in possession as Brighton controlled the play with 569 passes to just 292.

Who will win Chelsea vs Norwich?
On face value this appears to be a fairly straightforward assignment for Chelsea at home, but on closer inspection they will have to be careful.
They weren't at their best last week in a scrappy performance and their opponents this week have gone 213 minutes since they last conceded a goal.
Norwich were outplayed last week around the park but they defended grimly and were well organised at the back.
If they can replicate that and find some attacking rhythm they could pose some questions for the league leaders.
Chelsea haven't lost to Norwich in any form of competition since 1994, an unbeaten run that now spans 17 matches (including 13 victories).
The most likely outcome is Chelsea absorb all pressure and eventually produce enough class to break through the Norwich defence and secure all 3 points.
