Norwich City travels to Stamford Bridge to face The Blues in the hopes to register a win after losing five of the last seven games against Chelsea.
New signing Juan Mata could be drafted in with Fernando Torres perhaps preferred to Didier Drogba if this is the case. Florent Malouda is likely to be restored after his productive cameo against West Brom, with the ineffectual Salomon Kalou the most likely casualty.
Defender Ayala won’t be playing for Norwich city as he has been ruled out for eight week due to knee injury while center-back Leon Barret is back into action after facing one match ban.
