Chelsea are expected to debut Gary Cahill in their weekend Premier League clash against Norwich City.

Chelsea will hope to continue their winning form when they travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City on Saturday.

The Blues are facing the Canaries on the back of a 1-0 victory over Sunderland, while Norwich will be hoping to build on their last two victories in the league.

Paul Lambert is likely to partner Grant Holt and Steve Morison up front following Holt's appearance from the bench in their 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

On-loan defender Kyle Naughton is likely to make the starting XI, while Andrew Surman should be given a spot in midfield.

Andre Villas-Boas is likely to hand new signing Gary Cahill his Blues debut while Michael Essien should be given a starting spot after returning to the side from the bench during their win over Sunderland last week.

Current form:

Norwich: DDLDWW
Chelsea: DDDLWW

Possible lineups:

Norwich: Ruddy; Whitbread, Ayala, Martin, Naughton; Johnson, Surman, Pilkington, Hoolahan; Morison, Holt

Chelsea: Cech; Bosingwa, Terry, Cahill, Cole; Essien, Ramires, Lampard, Mata; Sturridge, Torres

Sports Mole says: 1-2
