Guus Hiddink’s men required only 39 seconds to lead the pack at Carrow Road because of the Brazilian winger-turned-full-back’s furious strike, as Alex Neil’s men lost once more. A first-minute goal scoring from Kenedy and a dubious strike from Diego Costa helped Chelsea to a 2-1 triumph at Norwich City, who dropped into the Premier League transfer zone.
The Canaries came into Tuesday’s meeting at Carrow Road having taken only one point from their previous seven diversions, and they got off to a lamentable begin as Kenedy netted his first Premier League objective after only 39 seconds.
The full-back had been incorporated into the beginning XI set up of Baba Rahman, who was guilty for Southampton’s objective on Saturday, and promptly advocated his determination with a fine shot from fresh.
Norwich felt oppressed to yield a second in first-half stoppage time as Costa, who netted the main objective in the opposite installation, went through from what seemed to be an offside position to score.
Nathan Redmond pulled one back for Norwich in the 68th moment however Chelsea clutched move to eighth, having gone unbeaten in the 12 class matches subsequent to Guus Hiddink assumed control taking after Jose Mourinho’s sacking in December.
Norwich, in the interim, slip into the last three, civility of Sunderland’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, in front of a pivotal trek to kindred strugglers Swansea City on Saturday. On the ball, Norwich director Alex Neil had begged his players to keep Chelsea calm however they fizzled stupendously as the guests led the pack after only a few moments.
Eden Hazard nourished Kenedy, who cut inside before moving the ball back onto his left foot where he arrowed a drive past John Ruddy into the base right corner from 20 yards to net the quickest objective of the Premier League season in this way.
Norwich reacted well to the early difficulty as Cameron Jerome beset the Chelsea backline, the striker heading barely over from Wes Hoolahan’s cross in the seventeenth moment.
Chelsea should have multiplied their favorable position eight minutes before the interim as Hazard’s sublime pass sent Bertrand Traore clean through yet his overwhelming touch permitted Ruddy to assemble.
The Norwich goalkeeper then made a fine spare from Cesc Fabregas’ hazardous set-piece, before Costa multiplied the point of preference in disputable circumstances.
