EPL: Chelsea close in on Champions League qualification after Norwich win

Chelsea defeated Norwich City on Tuesday night, thanks to an Olivier Giorud goal.

The win saw the Blues open a four-point gap over Manchester United and Leicester in the race for a place in the Champions League next season.

Frank Lampard’s men struggled to create and dominate against the Canaries, who have already been relegated.

However, Giroud’s bullet header in first-half stoppage time, proved to the winning goal at Stamford Bridge.

Up next for Chelsea is a trip to champions Liverpool and sixth-placed Wolves visiting on the last day of the season.

Leicester can narrow the gap when they host Sheffield United on Wednesday, while United travel to Crystal Palace on Thursday.
