Sports Mole previews the match in the Premier League between Chelsea and Norwich City.

Chelsea can keep their hopes of winning the Premier League title alive with a win against Norwich City on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues will drop to third place if Manchester City earn a result against Everton on Saturday evening, but with Liverpool not playing until Monday, Jose Mourinho's team will move to the top of the standings if they win at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho will recall Nemanja Matic in midfield, while the Portuguese coach is expected to make changes in attack after seeing his side lose 3-1 to Atletico Madrid in midweek.

Norwich arrive in West London on the back of five successive defeats, and failure to secure a result at Chelsea will leave the club on the brink of relegation to the Championship.

Neil Adams saw the Canaries fail to score for a fourth time in five fixtures against Manchester United last week, and the newly-appointed boss could opt to recall striker Gary Hooper.
