Stop me if you've heard this one before...Chelsea were excellent in the first half against Norwich City, but that dominant play isn't currently reflected by the scoreline. The Blues spent the bulk of the first half with the ball in Norwich City's end, but lacked the end product to give themselves a led at the break.

The big positive to take from the opening 45 minutes would be the attacking chemistry we appear to have today. The attacking unit looks mostly in sync (save for Branislav Ivanovic's inability to pick out Diego Costa runs), and it's hard to imagine that Norwich can keep this group off the board for another 45 minutes.

Kenedy has also been a pleasant surprise as well, not looking out of place at all defending the left flank. That said, he's had very little actual defending to do, as Chelsea spent the vast majority of the first 45 minutes in attack, so much so that I'd have likely looked comfortable filling in for Cesar Azpilicueta.

With any luck, the Blues will bang in an early goal or two once the second half kicks off, and we can all relax and enjoy the end of a match, for a change. Please win, Chelsea...
