Norwich City vs. Chelsea: Premier League Live Score, Highlights, Recap
Carrow Road—Norwich, U.K.
Norwich City 1-3 Chelsea
Jose Mourinho's Chelsea claimed their first three-point haul away from home in the Premier League this season courtesy of a 3-1 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road.
Oscar opened the scoring after four minutes with a sumptuous, first-time finish from just inside the area, but Anthony Pilkington pegged the Blues back halfway through the second period.
A late flurry of strikes—one from Eden Hazard on a blistering counterattack, one long-range golazo from Willian—settled the matter, and the home side can feel hard done by after playing very well for long spells.
Chelsea seal a three-point haul with a 3-1 win at Carrow Road.
GOAL! 3-1 to Chelsea!
Straight back up Norwich's end, Willian curls an incredible finish into the top corner to seal it for Chelsea.
More on the goal
A break-neck counter, started by Willian from a poor Norwich corner, is finished by Eden Hazard. The Belgian steams forward and his shot squeezes over the line after Ruddy let it under his body!
GOAL! Chelsea take the lead!
82'—Almost an immediate impact, as Redmond takes on Luiz and tests Cech with a serving effort. Olsson then breaches the penalty area and airshots a good chance on goal!
Willian and Redmond enter the fray in a final twist from each manager!
78'—Chelsea pressure, and they go oh-so-close to scoring.
Ruddy palms a stinging, long-range effort away, then Hazard fires wide from inside the area after taking the subsequent cross down beautifully.
76'—Chelsea look to be playing three at the back, Ramires RWB and Schurrle LWB (Terry, Luiz, Ivanovic central). Bertrand looks on from the sidelines.
Ashley Cole, holding his ribs and grimacing, comes off for Eden Hazard.
Van Wolfswinkel, after assisting the goal, is replaced by Gary Hooper.
Ba off, Eto'o on.
More on the goal
Olsson steams down the left wing and crosses to the back post. RVW knocks it down superbly having beaten Luiz in the air, and Pilkington fumbles it home to draw the hosts level!
GOAL! NORWICH EQUALISE!
63'—Super buildup from Chelsea sees Oscar cutting in off the left and fashion an angle, but his shot is horrendous, flying so far wide it's almost a throw!
61'—It's starting to feel like a matter of time before Norwich equalise here, Chelsea are pretty much on the ropes here. Still, under Jose, don't be surprised to see the next goal go into Ruddy's net.
Oscar is booked for a late challenge on Snodgrass.
58'—Chaos in the box!
Norwich break and Snodgrass puts RVW in on goal. It's chest height and Cech is steaming out, it trickles wide and penalty claims are ignored.
55'—Norwich earn a free kick in a great area but it's fired well over, despite Cech looking into the sun. Disappointing.
51'—On second glance, that is a clear penalty that hasn't been given for Norwich. Home side rightly aggrieved.
48'—Norwich counter at pace and Snodgrass delays the pass to set Pilkington through too long. Pilkington is bowled over in the box, but no penalty is given.
Ba is free at the near post and back-heels a low cross just wide!
45'—We are underway!
45+1'—Last chance of the half goes Norwich's way, with Bassong volleying into Cech's gloves from a corner.
44'—Luiz takes a shot from the halfway line and he's very close to chipping Ruddy! That had the 'keeper worried. One minute of added time.
40'—Superb pressure for Norwich and Howson gets himself in the area with his back to goal after an RVW flick. He can't turn—Luiz won't let him—and Tettey ends up firing over from the lay-off.
35'—Norwich with another decent spell of pressure and they're denied a corner when Luiz heads it behind. Referee having a so-so game.
Demba Ba gets Bassong one vs. one on the right, the striker cuts in and balloons an awful shot well wide.
