    Injuries, Canaries and little men

    A comfortable Champions League win - but at what cost?

    Simon Johnson and Liam Twomey join Matt Davies-Adams to discuss the 4-0 victory over Malmö - which saw Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both leave the pitch injured before half-time.

    We ponder what this could mean for Thomas Tuchel's side ahead of the visit of Norwich City Saturday lunchtime - and look ahead to that game with the help of BBC Radio Norfolk's Chris Goreham.

    There's a customary quiz, very fond memories of Antonio Conte - and some love for the Stamford Bridge press box and its butter chicken!

    So...Chelsea's goalkeeper is quite good isn't he?

    Matt Davies-Adams has got Dom Fifield and Liam Twomey in tow to reflect on the remarkable man of the match performance of Edouard Mendy who ensured the Blues came away from the Brentford Community Stadium with all three points. There's also some love for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Malang Sarr who starred - and withstood the late onslaught.

    Focus then shifts back to the Champions League, with the European champions welcoming Malmö to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
