Chelsea take on Norwich City at Stamford Bridge in their penultimate Premier League game of this season on Sunday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 4pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Chelsea come into this fixture having suffered a disappointing exit in the Champions League semi-final at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

The west London club took the lead courtesy of Fernando Torres' goal in the 36th minute. Adrian Lopez, Diego Costa and Arda Turan got into the goal scoring act for the La Liga outfit by breaching Petr Cech's goal once each, to hand the home side a 1-3 defeat.

Jose Mourinho's side still stand an outside chance of winning the league this season and need Liverpool and Manchester City to further slip up in their remaining two fixtures.

The Blues dented Liverpool's chances of taking a step towards the league title by beating Brendan Rodgers' side 2-0 at Anfield. Demba Ba and Willian were on target during the added time of the first half and the second half respectively.

After playing 36 matches, they are currently third in the table with 78 points, trailing league leaders City and second-placed Liverpool by two points. Chelsea could find themselves on top of the table at the end of the day if they beat Norwich.

The Canaries suffered yet another setback in their quest to avoid relegation after losing 4-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend. Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney netted a brace to pile more pressure on the away side.

The Norfolk based club are 18th in the table with 32 points after playing 36 matches. They must secure maximum points from their remaining two fixtures and hope teams above them drop points, essential for their survival.

A defeat for Neil Adams' side on Sunday will send them one step closer to the Championship.

What Managers Say

Jose Mourinho: "They are playing the game of their lives so it's going to be very difficult. They have two games to decide where they are next season; are they in the Championship or the Premier League? We know that we play against two teams that desperately need the three points, but we also need the points to finish third and guarantee a Champions League spot next season."

Neil Adams: "The effort is there, the commitment is there, but it's points we need. We've always known what we're up against, but in terms of application it's exactly what you need from a team in this situation. We just have to hope that translates into something at Stamford Bridge. We need to get points from our last two games."
