How Hazard could turn Carrow Road into the ‘Garden of Eden’?

Eden Hazard Chelsea

In a bid to extend their 11-game unbeaten run, the Blues look ahead to their Premier League fixture at Carrow Road with John Terry remaining on sidelines, Alexandre Pato on the bench for the first time since joining the club on loan in January and Eden Hazard searching for top-form.

When these two clubs last met at Stamford Bridge, Diego Costa scored an edging 64th-minute goal in a 1-0 win over the Canaries restoring pride to Chelsea’s then form. With several tipsters earmarking Chelsea to win big once again, offers several different options for you to get cracking while placing the bet.

A win for Chelsea would see them returning to the top half of the table with a promotion to the eighth spot from the point of Guus Hidink’s arrival when they were close to the relegation zone, just one point away.

In a striking contrast, Norwich sits in the 17the place on the league table having been quite the struggling side who are without a win in their last six games and have only picked up four points at home this year.

The fact that this season has left Norwich literally contesting for their lives in the league so far, their manager Alex Neil has only one thing to say: “When we played Arsenal and Everton at home recently, we gave a really good account of ourselves and there’s no reason why this can’t be the same.”

Guus Hiddink readies his troops to test Norwich’s fitness for survival and keeps a relatively positive approach saying: “Of course this club must have big objectives but it was a side objective to get away from the relegation zone as soon as possible.”

The catch for this match stays with the million dollar question surfacing Eden Hazard’s potential performance revival pitted against a stretch to Steven Naismith’s haunting form.


The Belgian looks to be getting back to his old self and played very well on Saturday against Southampton. Continuing his form could help Chelsea achieve a high finish on the table, scoring more goals and giving the fans a fantastic win for their money.

Having had a dismal run this season, Hazard only has 3 goals and 6 assists in 35 games to his name. It is high time he explored his deep impact in the game when Chelsea attacks. Although, he finally scored his first Stamford Bridge goal in Sunday’s FA Cup defeat of Manchester City, scored the fourth that set up a quarter-final date with Everton, set up two goals, he needs to express himself better and understand the performance stats that are expected from him.

Not to mention, the Ligue 1 champions who have had most of Hazard’s attention span lately intend to influence his performances.
Chelsea would like him to score against the Canaries and keep PSG at bay until at least next week when they meet at Stamford Bridge for the second leg Round of 16.
