Norwich vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal sanctions updates as Roman Abramovich’s name chanted despite

Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich sanctioned by UK government amid Russian oligarch crackdown

Follow all the action as Norwich City host Chelsea in the Premier League this evening.

Thomas Tuchel’s side arrive at Carrow Road having been thrown into disarray by the news that Roman Abramovich has been sanctioned by the UK government. Reports suggest the club could still be sold in the coming weeks, so long as all the proceeds do not benefit the Russian oligarch, but the futures of several players have been thrown into doubt. With the club now a frozen asset, Chelsea will no longer be able to sell individual matchday tickets or merchandise and face further restrictions on its expenditure relating to hosting and participating in domestic and European fixtures. Shirt sponsor Three has also suspended its relationship with the club.

The development will inevitably come as a huge distraction to the club’s players, but the threat of being dragged back into the top-four race looks to have been eased by three successive league wins. The Blues are currently six points clear of fifth-place Manchester United and also boast two games in hand. Norwich, meanwhile, urgently need to spring an upset to have any chance of avoiding relegation this season, with the club rooted to the bottom of the table after taking just 17 points from 27 games.

Chelsea must not be sold off as part of ‘fire sale’, warns Sadiq Khan

The mayor of London has said it is important to ensure Chelsea is not sold off as part of a “fire sale”.

The west London club’s owner Roman Abramovich has been sanctioned over his links to Vladimir Putin as the UK targeted more oligarchs after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Major Sadiq Khan urged the Government to remember there are millions of Chelsea fans who are “completely innocent”.

He told the PA news agency: “I think Chelsea are a great Premier League club, they’re the champions of Europe, the world club champions.

“They were a great club before the current owner and they’ll be a great club after the current owner.

“It’s important to distinguish Chelsea and what’s happening in Ukraine because the reality is for too long Russian oligarchs close to Putin had been using homes in London, businesses in London, to launder money.

“I think it’s right that the Government is now taking sanctions and seizing assets of those Russian oligarchs close to Putin.”

HALF TIME: Norwich 0-2 Chelsea

It may be chaos off the pitch, but Chelsea are in cruise control on it. They lead at the break and it really should have been more. Chalobah’s header inside three minutes set the tone for a dominant first half, with Mount and Havertz outstanding for the visitors. They then combined for Chelsea’s second as Mount found the top corner from the edge of the box. Norwich are heading down and it looks like Watford may join them. The Hornets trail Wolves 3-0 at the break, while it’s 1-1 between Southampton and Newcastle.
