Norwich manager ,Chris Houghton’s decision to pack the midfield had good and bad effects.This tactic resulted in .,shots from Jonny Howson and Leroy Fer and Robert Snodgrass but at the same time left Ricky van Wolfswinkel isolated with no support in the first half.The best moment before half time came when David Luiz took a shot from the halfway line and the ball that dropped inches from the crossbar.
The second half began with a great chance from Ramires’s low cross but Ba didn’t get proper connection at the far post to give Chelsea a confident lead.
Mourinho commented this moment: “When he missed the easy goal I smelt that they [Norwich] would score one.”

Anthony Pilkington which should have been a penalty and a sending off for Ramires.
