Norwich City played their second successive Carrow Road game when they hosted Chelsea in a televised clash this lunchtime - and our reporters were there to bring you all the updates from the Premier League clash.

The Canaries were beaten 3-2 by the visitors, despite fighting back to level twice in the first half through Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki.

Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount had scored the goals for the hosts and a fine Tim Krul save had prevented the Blues moving 3-1 up ahead of Pukki's goal.

Abraham scored the winner in the 68th minute though, with Kurt Zouma also having a goal correctly ruled out by VAR which would have made it 4-2, with Ben Godfrey heading against the crossbar in City's closest chance to a third equaliser.
