Giroud goal against Norwich strengthen Chelsea top four push
Chelsea have consolidated their grip on a Champions League spot after beating Norwich 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
In a game of very few obvious possibilities Olivier Giroud scored the only goal, heading in Christian Pulisic’s cross during first half stoppage time.
Christian Pulisic himself had come closest to scoring, but observed his effort tipped onto the crossbar by Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul.
Chelsea kept on dominate possession in the first half and subsequent second half, however again attempted to make a chance to kill the game off.
In any case, they weren’t made to pay for it as they easily observed the game out to make sure about the three points.
It sees them push four points ahead of Manchester United and Leicester City in the race for the top four and Champions League football next season.
