Chelsea vs. Norwich City: Lineups & Game Thread

Mike Hewitt

"When it depends on you to win it's the situation we all want to have: a situation where if you win you are champions.  But also it also brings much more pressure because if you miss that chance you are giving the title away to someone else. We need to use that pressure by winning our games."

"Man City and Liverpool know they have to win their games, even a draw for them might not be enough. We need to use all the pressure we can by winning our games. That's all we can do and that's what we have to do."
