Chelsea vs Norwich: Leaders look to stay undefeated

LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Leaders Chelsea go in search of another win to add to its impressive start to the Barclays Premier League when they take on Norwich at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Roberto Di Matteo side has won five of its six games so far in the new campaign and is one of only two teams still undefeated so far.

Chelsea are reporting that England striker Daniel Sturridge is the only player not up for selection to face the Canaries. Sturridge has been active in training after recovering from a hamstring injury he picked up prior to the game against Juventus last, but Di Matteo believes the Norwich game comes a little too soon.

Meanwhile, Norwich is expected to welcome back centre-half Sebastien Bassong, who returns from a hamstring problem to make the trip.

Chelsea vs Norwich Teams:

Chelsea (squad): Cech, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Luiz, Cole, Bertrand, Mikel, Romeu, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Hazard, Oscar, Moses, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Turnbull.

Norwich (squad): Ruddy, Barnett, Turner, Bassong, Garrido, Martin, Surman, Hoolahan, Johnson, Howson, Snodgrass, Jackson, Holt, Morison, Tettey, R Bennett, E Bennett, Tierney, Bunn, Pilkington.
