PREMIER LEAGUE LIVE: Norwich v Chelsea – the action from Carrow Road as it happens

Follow Sportsmail's coverage of the Barclays Premier League as Norwich host Chelsea at Carrow Road to kick off the weekend's action. The Canaries have caught many teams by surprise since making their return to the top flight and will prove tough opposition for the title chasing Blues.

13.55: I've got a feeling I might be banned from covering games in the future. Nothing of great note has happened at the start of this second half.

13.53: Pilkington fires a cross into the Chelsea penalty area, but it's too powerfully struck and the ball evades everybody.

13.48: We're back under way, so we are.

13.35: I'm informed that neither side made a foul in the first half. Unusual.

13.33: I told my colleagues before the game that this wouldn't finish 0-0.

13.32: HALF-TIME: NORWICH 0 CHELSEA 0

13.30: A hanging Torres cross is heading towards Malouda at the back post, but Anthony Pilkington does well to intercept and clear.

13.24: Decent Chelsea move, with Ashley Cole producing some nice work on the left and the ball squirming towards Juan Mata, who fires a low shot towards goal, which Ruddy has to block. Malouda is on the pitch for Lampard.

13.20: Lampard leaves the pitch with an injury, and almost instantly Norwich go close when a shot from Johnson takes a wicked deflection and Cech has to be alert to save and gather low down.

13.15: Half an hour has been played in this one, and we await the first goal. It's been decent enough fare, but without any great drama.

13.12: A smashing effort from Torres, who uses the outside of his foot to curl a lovely shot towards goal, forcing Ruddy into a superb save. The resulting corner is cleared away.

13.06: It's all gone a little bit quiet at Carrow Road. We could probably do with a goal in this one.

13.03: Some time soon, Chelsea will get the final ball right. Sturridge narrowly fails to find a team-mate with a cross into the area.

12.59: I've been reliably informed that Torres has looked decent lately. He doesn't do well here though when in space on the right-hand side of the Norwich penalty area. A sloppy ball across the area sees the ball easily cleared away.

12.56: Morison neatly plays in Grant Holt for the hosts, with plenty of holes in the Chelsea defence. Holt shoots narrowly wide. Bright game, this one.
