  • That's it, Chelsea beat Norwich 3-1 to move to third in the Barclays Premier League. It was a physical game with no lack of effort from any player, but in the end a defensive mistake from Norwich was penalised ruthlessly by Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

  • As Chelsea knock it around I can confirm that they'll move up to third with this victory and it's an important one - they've had to overcome an excellent fightback from Norwich and while they deserve to win, we must give the hosts their credit.

  • Bassong has had a poor end to this game and gives it away cheaply again, allowing Willian to cross before Martin eventually clears.

  • We're into the first of four added minutes and Cech is prepared to take time before Howson forces him to clear.

  • Chelsea stroke it around easily as the energy disappears from Norwich. Ivanovic is eventually caught offside.

  • Lampard shoots from the free-kick and Ruddy is forced to palm it wide for a corner.

  • Bassong concedes a free-kick 35 yards out with a foul on Ramires.

  • Silence, or something close to it, from the Norwich fans. Chelsea's extra quality in the final third has made the difference but Hughton will want a word with Bassong, whose error led to the first of those two quickfire goals.

  • GOAL! Willian! Game over. The ball breaks to Willian and he curls a beautiful first-time effort high into the Norwich goal. From having a chance to win the game Norwich have seen any hope of a result dashed with two breakaway strikes.

  • GOAL! Hazard! Chelsea retake the lead and it's from a Norwich corner, headed clear by Ivanovic. Willian then heads to Oscar and Bassong, attempting to control instead of clear, inadvertently plays in Hazard. His shot sneaks under Ruddy who will feel he should've done better.

  • Willian has replaced Mata and his shot from 20 yards is blocked as Chelsea pile forward. Norwich counter and Redmond wins a corner.

  • Another chance but this one ends comically as Olsson finds himself in the Chelsea box but misses the ball completely as he attempts a swipe with his left foot. End-to-end stuff.

  • Good work from Chelsea before Oscar gets a little too intricate and Norwich break, with Redmond cutting inside before forcing Cech into a save with a powerful shot which looked destined for the top corner.

  • That was to be the last offering from Snodgrass as Redmond replaces him. Can this exciting talent find a winner for Norwich? We're set for an exciting conclusion to the match.

  • Martin does well to get in front of Hazard as the Chelsea forward attempts to collect a Lampard pass. Norwich break, again down the left, before Snodgrass fires wide on his weaker right foot.

  • Another chance for Chelsea as Ivanovic turns provider, finding Hazard who spins before volleying wide from 12 yards.

  • Chelsea are enjoying plenty of possession now but they need a moment of of magic to unlock an organised defence. It nearly comes from an unlikely source as Ivanovic forces a fine save from Ruddy.

  • Schurrle is now effectively playing as a left wing-back and does well to collect a Luiz pass under pressure. Mata then drops deep to find space to cross but it's poor and goes out for a goal kick.

  • Howson and Snodgrass again combine before Pilkington is dispossessed by Ivanovic, who then wins a free-kick. Mata then finds Schurrle in space but his cross is poor.

  • It's Cole who makes way for Hazard as Chelsea look to find a way to win what's been a really tough game for them.
