Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas admitted his team could be left counting the cost of failing to beat a resolute Norwich side after Saturday afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash at Carrow Road ended goalless.
The Blues were unable to fully capitalise on their chance to close the gap on the leading three, who all play Sunday, after Fernando Torres fired another blank against a Norwich side who collected their first clean sheet of the season. Chelsea are now 10 points behind leaders Manchester City, who host Tottenham this weekend, but having played a match more.
Villas-Boas said: "Bearing in mind Norwich's run of form, you could say it is not a bad point, but because we want to be champions, it puts in things in a different perspective ahead of tomorrow's fixtures."
