USMNT forwards clash when their near-polar opposite Premier League clubs meet in a midweek match, as Chelsea looks to firm up its top four credentials while Norwich City aims to escape the bottom three (2:30pm ET Thursday online via Peacock Premium)
Both Norwich forward Josh Sargent and Chelsea star Christian Pulisic are in decent form, but both of their clubs are short of their season goals heading into Thursday’s match at Carrow Road.
Sargent, 22, has two goals and two assists in his last five outings for the Canaries, who are languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table, while the 23-year-old Pulisic has been starting regularly for Chelsea and had a goal and an assist against Burnley at the weekend.
Pulisic will not play Thursday despite hefty praise from Tuchel, possibly rested with Chelsea facing Newcastle on Sunday and Lille on Wednesday.
