Norwich City - Chelsea Tips
Football - FA Cup
OUR TIP: CHELSEA TO WIN THE GAME
Chelsea’s last experience in the FA Cup was a painful one, as they lost 1 – 2 to Arsenal in the final of the 2016/17 campaign and thus they will be hoping to start this season’s quest well when they travel to Norfolk to take on Norwich on 6th January. It is a clash Chelsea would relish, having avoided defeat against Norwich in their last 11 matches, winning nine and drawing two. With a six – match unbeaten run, Chelsea head to the game as firm favorites but they still have a league clash against Arsenal to think off on Wednesday 3rd January and will be hoping to keep all their key men fit for the Norwich game. In their last five matches, Norwich have won two, drawn one and lost the remaining two. They head to this game, on two wins, a loss and two draws in their last five home matches, having scored eight goals and conceded six. Norwich have managed just four wins in their last 15 matches and playing at home, they have two wins in 10 matches.
