Chelsea vs Norwich City: Striker Olivier Giroud guided a header past Tim Krul on the stroke of half-time to help Chelsea beat Norwich City 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, and get a step closer to next season’s Champions League.
About 40 seconds before half-time, Christian Pulisic jinked past Todd Cantwell on the left and sent in a lovely cross, Giroud spun away from Timm Klose in the middle, and the Frenchman then thumped in a diving header from six yards!
This victory strengthens Chelsea’s hold on third place on the Premier league table, where they sit four points above Leicester City and Manchester United, who both play on Thursday.
Norwich, who were relegated following a 4-0 thrashing by West Ham on Saturday, failed to record a shot on target during the match.
Chelsea are a step closer to next season’s Champions League. Next up is Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday evening
