Confirmed line-ups: Chelsea start with two strikers v Norwich
By Chelsea correspondent Tony Hughes
Bertrand Traore has been handed his first Chelsea start in Tuesday night’s Premier League clash at Norwich.
The 20-year-old striker has been given the nod after scoring three goals as a substitute for the Blues this season.
Diego Costa continues to spearhead the attack, which means Traore is likely to play in one of the three attacking midfield positions behind the Spain international.
Guus Hiddink has made four changes from the team that beat Southampton 2-1 on Sunday, with Kenedy, Nemanja Matic, Oscar and Traore replacing Baba Rahman, John Obi Mikel, Willian and the injured Pedro.
Chelsea team tonight: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ivanovic (c), Kenedy, Fabregas, Matic, Hazard, Oscar, Traore, Diego Costa. #CFC
