    N'Golo Kante will miss Chelsea's Premier League clash with Norwich due to a hamstring injury.

    The France midfielder remains sidelined for Tuesday's crucial encounter, but could yet be fit for Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United.

    Defender Andreas Christensen came off at half-time in the 3-0 loss at Sheffield United, but has shaken off a knock.

    Norwich will be without Ondrej Duda at Stamford Bridge after he was given permission to return to his parent club Hertha Berlin.

    The Slovakian was an unused substitute during Saturday's 4-0 defeat to West Ham, which confirmed the Canaries' relegation and as a result the loanee has been allowed to go back to Germany early.

    Boss Daniel Farke will also be without Moritz Leitner (hernia) plus defenders Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann and Sam Byram (all hamstring).

    Live Premier League

    Charlie's prediction

    This is a game Chelsea have to win. You could see the result at Sheffield United coming - the Blades had so much more than them.

    It looked as though Sheffield United and Wolves were going to blow it and it would be a straight shootout between Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester, but all of a sudden those teams are back in it as well. Manchester City have won their case so only two positions are up for grabs.

    Chelsea have some awkward games to come, Wolves at home and Liverpool away being the two tough ones after Norwich. You win this and you could be in a position to take a point against Wolves and see what Liverpool bring. The pressure is on Chelsea, but I do not see this as anything other than a Chelsea win.

    Their position and mindset is simple. Do they want Champions League football? This could ease the pain a bit for Chelsea, as the teams around them still have tough games. Man Utd are strong favourites but this is one where they simply have to get the job done. This is one that is not difficult to call, and an attack-minded Chelsea side will win this one.

    CHARLIE PREDICTS: 3-0 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
