Lampard will make changes to the side that was hammered by Sheffield United this past weekend. Kepa Arrizabalaga has hardly been convincing in goal of late, but is likely to be stuck with for the game. Reece James endured a difficult game last time out and could be given a breather, with Cesar Azpilicueta moving to right-back, while Marcos Alonso starts on the left.
Christensen endured a torrid outing against Sheffield United and is unlikely to start on Tuesday. And while Antonio Rudiger didn’t fare all too better, he is likely to start at the heart of the Chelsea defence alongside Kurt Zouma.
Jorginho is a certain starter at the base of the three-man midfield due to the unavailability of Kante and Gilmour. Ross Barkley has been in decent form of late and should be retained, but Mason Mount is set to face the axe, with Mateo Kovacic expected to replace him.
Willian and Christian Pulisic have been Lampard’s preferred players on the flanks. And while he will be tempted to use Callum Hudson-Odoi against a lowly Norwich side, given how close the top-four battle is, he is unlikely to take a risk. Tammy Abraham had a poor outing last time out and should make way for Olivier Giroud as the lone striker.
Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso; Barkley, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Giroud, Pulisic
The already-relegated Canaries will have to make do without the services of Christoph Zimmermann, Grant Hanley, Sam Byram and Moritz Leitner. There are no other injury problems that Daniel Farke has to deal with, although he might look to provide some youngsters with an opportunity in their final days in the Premier League.
In goal, there is no looking past seasoned campaigner Tim Krul. Max Aarons, who has been linked with Arsenal, ought to continue at right-back, while Jamal Lewis should continue on the left. Ben Godfrey and Timm Klose are the only available options at centre-back and should feature on Tuesday.
Kenny McLean should come into the side in the midfield double pivot. He is likely to partner captain Alexander Tettey, with Mario Vrancic dropping out of the starting XI. Ondrej Duda could come into the side in place of Marco Stiepermann, starting in the No. 10 role for the visitors.
Todd Cantwell was left out of the starting XI, but should feature against Chelsea, slotting in on the left, while Emiliano Buendia should get the nod on the right. Youngster Josh Martin could get some minutes from the bench, like he did in the previous game.
Teemu Pukki hasn’t scored in his last 11 Premier League matches, going 780 minutes without a strike. He could be benched on Tuesday, with Josip Drmic likely to get the nod, although. 19-year-old Adam Idah is also an option at Farke’s disposal.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Klose, Godfrey, Lewis; Tettey, McLean; Buendia, Duda, Cantwell; Drmic
