Frank Lampard was dropped to the bench for Chelsea's clash with Norwich.The 34-year-old scored in the Blues' 8-0 win against Aston Villa on Sunday but was named on the bench at Carrow Road with John Obi Mikel named in his place.Oscar was also handed a start by Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez, with Eden Hazard amongst the substitutes.Norwich welcomed back captain Grant Holt from a hamstring injury that ruled him out of last weekend's defeat at West Brom.He replaced Steve Morison in attack for the Canaries while Russell Martin came in for the injured Steven Whittaker.
Chelsea starting XI: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Luiz, Torres, Mata, Oscar, Mikel, Moses, Cahill, Azpilicueta.
Norwich starting XI: Norwich team to face Chelsea: Bunn, R Martin, Bassong, Turner, Garrido, Pilkington, Johnson, Tettey, Snodgrass, Hoolahan, Holt.
After their 8-0 drubbing of Aston Villa their appears to be renewed confidence in Chelsea ahead of their trip to Carrow Road. The Blues, unbeaten in their last eight against the Canaries, are 8/15. But with Chelsea having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six outings on the road there is some support for Norwich (5/1) and the draw is available at 3/1. After his opening goal against Villa, Fernando Torres is 7/2 to break the deadlock and it's 22/1 for the Spaniard to net first and Chelsea win 3-1 or 4/1, while Robert Snodgrass to score first and Norwich to draw 1-1 is a massive 75/1.
