Norwich vs Chelsea: What has been said?

Norwich head coach Daniel Farke: “The Newcastle performance was good for our confidence.

“But we will still be the underdog in each and every game. We need to keep working.”

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard: “We want to win of course. We must remain confident.

“We want to win the game but must be respectful of [Norwich]. I know the dangers that they have.

“As I said before, if we’d have been more clinical in front of goal we possibly could have had three wins.

“The competition is there and that’s the challenge.”
