Chelsea are expected to make easy work of Sky Bet Championship club Norwich City when they face Daniel Farke’s men in the FA Cup Third Round at Carrow Road on Saturday according to the results of a series of exclusive Chelsea Presser fan polls.
The Blues were defeated by London rivals Arsenal in the final of last season’s competition and a safe passage into the Fourth Round is anticipated this year.
Ahead of the match, we asked Blues fans whether Chelsea will defeat The Canaries. Fans voted in their usual high numbers with 85% opting for an away win while just 15% of voters think that second tier club Norwich City will cause an upset.
In a second fan poll, we asked Chelsea fans how many goals they think their side will score against the Norfolk outfit. Two or three goals was the most favourable outcome with 59% of the votes while 26% think that The Blues could score four or more. Just 4% expect that Antonio Conte’s men will bag once while 11% believe that the home side will record a clean sheet.
Finally, with manager Conte set to rotate his squad for the match, we asked whether back-up striker Michy Batshuayi should start against The Canaries. Fans voted in favour of a recall for the Belgian frontman with 74% voting for him to start the match.
The clash at Carrow Road is scheduled to kick-off at 5.30pm on Saturday evening and will be screened live on BT Sport 2.
