Stat Attack: Chelsea vs Norwich City | Premier League

Chelsea welcome bottom of the table Norwich City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel's side are flying high at the top of the table after eight games. But for Norwich and Daniel Farke, it's been far from a positive start. Sitting on just two points, they are already in a huge battle to survive the drop this season after earning promotion.
