Norwich vs Chelsea: Key stats ahead of Carrow Road clash

Chelsea will take their hunt for a first Premier League win of the new season to Carrow Road when they take on Norwich City on Saturday. 

The Blues, under new manager Frank Lampard, are winless in their first three matches of the season, including the Uefa Super Cup, and lost to Manchester United on opening day before drawing 1-1 against Leicester at home

Norwich, making a return to the League after their relegation at the end of the 2014/15 season, recovered from their opening match's 4-1 drubbing away to Liverpool to beat Newcastle 3-1, and will be in good spirits on Saturday. 

Ahead of the fixture, which are the key statistics that you should know?

Chelsea record

Chelsea will go into the match with an enviable record winning 10 and drawing five against the Canaries in the last 15  matches in all competitions.

The last defeat for the Blues at Carrow Road came in 1994, and have since won eight and drawn two in the Premier League then. 

Manager Frank Lampard has never lost against Norwich, scoring four goals in his eight wins and three draws in all competitions.

Chelsea will also be buoyed by the fact that they have lost just two of their last 22 Premier League games against newly-promoted teams (15 wins, five draws).

The Blues, however, will be worried about their recent away record, having lost two and drawing two in their last four matches away from the Bridge. 

They have also lost six of their last 10 away Premier League matches, failing to score in seven of those games.

Pukki's performance

The Canaries, on the other hand, have won once in their last 15 Premier League home games against ‘big six’ opposition, picking up seven points from a possible 45 in this run (one win, four draws, and 10 defeats).

The team will, however, be in high spirits having picked a win last time out, and in Teemu Pukki, they have a marksman who can bail them out any minute. 

The Finn is leading the top scorers' charts in the English Premier League after week two, having found the net four times now.
