Chelsea can keep their unbeaten run going with a victory over Norwich City on Saturday, while the Canaries will try to bounce back from their heavy defeat to Liverpool last weekend.

Chelsea can extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven when they face off against Norwich City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Roberto Di Matteo's side currently sit at the top of the league table, three points adrift of Everton, while the Canaries are suffering a slump and they will be hoping to avoid another after their defeat to Liverpool, when they lost 5-2 last weekend.

The Blues are likely to field Fernando Torres on his own up front, with Oscar, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata sitting behind the striker to provide extra support.

Meanwhile, Chris Hughton could opt for a forward partnership of Grant Holt and Steve Morison, which would drip Simeon Jackson to the bench.

Recent form:

Chelsea: WWDWW
Norwich: DDDLL

Possible lineups:

Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole; Mikel, Ramires; Oscar, Hazard, Mata; Torres

Norwich: Ruddy; Martin, Turner, Barnett, Garrido; Snodgrass, Howson, Johnson, Surman; Morison, Jackson

Sports Mole says: 3-0
