Date: Sat, Nov 21, 2015

Division: Premier League

Result: Chelsea 1 Norwich 0

City's last visit to Stamford Bridge was in the FA Cup in January 2018, drawing a third round replay 1-1 but losing 5-3 on penalties. The last league game was settled by a Diego Costa strike in the 64th minute for the Blues, after City were caught out by a quick free-kick from Cesc Fabregas, easing some of the pressure on Jose Mourinho after a poor run of form.
