Chelsea’s Kante doubtful for Norwich clash

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard Frank Lampard is still looking for his first win as Chelsea head coach

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger hopes to feature after four months out with a knee problem.

Having scored just one goal in the league so far, Lampard urged his attackers to be more clinical in front of goal and wants Michy Batshuayi in particular to step up.

Tammy Abraham, Giroud and Michy Batshuayi are Chelsea's three strikers for the campaign, with the club unable to add any recruits given their Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban.

The 41-year-old says he's still seen encouraging signs during the opening two matches but there is no doubt Lampard will be desperate to get his first win under his belt with victory over Norwich this weekend. He scored two good goals, two very good finishes.

Saturday brings us further action from the Premier League and the early lunchtime kick-off brings us an interesting encounter between Norwich City and Chelsea as the betting tips continue at Carrow Road. I used to love practicing my finishing in training, it's what I felt made me lucky at the weekend, and gave me an edge in front of goal.

"But you can't get too down about that". "He will have a great career, I am pretty sure, and this big-money move was totally deserved for Chelsea a great decision to buy him. I thought he worked hard and that's exactly what the game was there to do for him", Lampard said. "We've got some great attacking players here, and it will come".

He said in a press conference: "Kante has got an injury, so we will assess that over the next 24 hours".

Pedro missed training earlier in the week but was rested after a hectic fixture schedule and is expected to be fit to take on the Canaries.

Lampard added: "Rudiger is not fit yet, but hopefully next week".

"We need Michy, we need the competition up front. That's the only changes from where we were last week".

It's been an eventful return to the English top flight for Norwich City who were crowned as winners of the Championship league title at the end of last season, and in truth, were a cut above all the other teams in the second tier last term.
