Chelsea have injury problems up front before hosting the Premier League’s bottom club. The league leaders saw Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner limp off against Malmö in midweek, while Christian Pulisic is still out with a persistent ankle problem, and Thomas Tuchel will need to tweak his attacking formula. Kai Havertz is set to lead the line and will hope to push on after scoring against Malmo, while there could also be a rare start for Callum Hudson-Odoi. Ultimately Chelsea should still have far too much for Norwich, who remain winless in the league this season. Jacob Steinberg
