Sports Mole previews Chelsea's trip to Norwich City on Sunday.

Norwich City will be looking to secure back-to-back wins in the Premier League when Chelsea visit Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.

Chris Hughton's men, who have won just once at home this season, secured a 1-0 victory over Stoke City last weekend.

Chelsea have won three of their opening six fixtures, and last week's draw at Tottenham Hotspur means that they currently sit fifth in the table.

Jose Mourinho's side come into the match on the back of a 4-0 success over Steaua Bucuresti in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Norwich trio Sebastian Bassong, Javier Garrido and Nathan Redmond are doubtful as they continue to recover from injury.

Jonny Howson could retain his place in the starting XI after scoring the winning goal at Stoke.

Chelsea will be without Fernando Torres after the Spanish striker's sending-off at White Hart Lane last weekend, so Samuel Eto'o is expected to lead the line.
