It’s been a topsy-turvy few days for Chelsea in their push for a top-four finish and Champions League football next season.
The Blues went into last weekend’s fixture away at Sheffield United in third place, but were subsequently thumped 3-0 by the South Yorkshire side.
And it looked like they were going to surrender third in the table to Leicester, when the 2016 Premier League champions took the lead away at relegation-threatened Bournemouth, until a second-half collapse from the Foxes saw them lose 4-1.
On Monday, Manchester City ’s Champions League ban overturned it meant a top four position was again required to play in next season's competition.
Manchester United then had the chance to leap into third place in the table on Monday night, but a 2-2 draw at home to Southampton has kept the Blues in third.
However, they'll need to rediscover their form if they want to finish in the top four and take their place at Europe’s top table next season.
A home fixture against Norwich is perhaps ideal for Frank Lampard’s side, with the Canaries’ relegation confirmed at the weekend when they were thrashed 4-0 at home by West Ham.
Norwich have a goal difference of -41, having scored just 26 goals and conceded 67 in their 35 league games so far this season.
