Norwich vs Chelsea Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Norwich betting tips

Norwich City vs Chelsea predictions and betting tips for their FA Cup clash on Saturday 6th January at 17.30pm. Read today’s FA Cup betting preview for the match below.


The third round of the FA Cup is on us and it’s time for the big boys to enter the competition. Antonio Conte’s men are now climbing the league table as they have had a great recent run of results. That will mean team rotation is a near certainty as they will be looking to keep their star players fresh for the next league game. Norwich are having an extremely inconsistent season which has seen them sat exactly in the middle of the table. They would love a cup run to ignite their season and instil some excitement for the Carrow Road fans. But can they do that after being handed a tie which couldn’t have been much tougher?


Norwich vs Chelsea Predictions

Even with Chelsea expected to rotate their side, they still have plenty of quality in their squad to fill in and progress through to the next round. They have a plethora of attacking talent that will cause the Canaries problems, but they certainly may look vulnerable at the back. Prior to their 0-0 draw against Everton, the Blues had conceded in their three previous away games and a makeshift defence on Saturday means that run could continue. Norwich have scored at least one goal in all but one of their last eight games at Carrow Road, so it’s clear they have talent up front. Nelson Oliveira and James Maddison will pose a threat and although we expect a Chelsea win, it would be no surprise to see the home side grab a goal. Chelsea to win and BTTS is the first of our Norwich vs Chelsea predictions in the FA Cup on Saturday.


First Goalscorer Tips

Michy Batshuayi was bought for £33 million by Chelsea, but his chances have been few and far between due to the form of Alvaro Morata. He rarely disappoints when he is handed a chance though. This is proven by the fact he averages a goal every 47 minutes. He scored a hat-trick in the EFL cup against Nottingham Forest, so he looks a shoe in to start the game here. Chelsea should have plenty of early chances and the Belgian youngster looks the best bet to take one of those so Michy Batshuayi is our first goalscorer tip for the Norwich vs Chelsea betting tips on Saturday.


Correct Score Predictions

The final pick in our FA Cup betting tips is a bit of a punt on a correct score. We have already predicted a Chelsea win and the fact that both teams will score, so 3-1 looks a decent value bet. Norwich haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet at home since the middle of September and in that time, have conceded goals against teams in the lower half of the league. With respect to Hull and Millwall for example, if they can bag against Norwich, a high-flying Chelsea side look capable of notching a few. Chelsea to win 3-1 completes this weekend’s Norwich vs Chelsea predictions.


Norwich vs Chelsea Preview

Daniel Farke has no real issues, with Louis Thompson the only certain absentee after achilleas tendon surgery. Antonio Conte has no real injury concerns after coming through the game against Arsenal, with David Luiz still possibly the only player remaining unavailable, however he does have a chance. That may not be worth the risk as the Italian is expected to make wholesale changes.

The stats look well and truly stacked in Chelsea’s favour when it comes to the head to head record. Norwich haven’t beaten Saturday’s visitors in 14 games, a run dating back to 1994. Chelsea won 4-0 last time the sides met in the FA Cup, thanks to goals from Didier Drogba and Andriy Shevchenko, amongst others.
