Chelsea left it late at Carrow Road, but still earned a 3-1 victory against Norwich City.

Jose Mourinho's team were leading for much of the game, but Norwich hit back with a goal in the second half. A pair of substitutes earned the victory for the Portuguese manager, with both Eden Hazard and Willian scoring.

It all started great for the visitors as Oscar scored after just four minutes of play. Demba Ba brought down a long ball on the left of the penalty area and he laid into the path of the upcoming Brazilian, who fired low across John Ruddy.

In the second half Norwich looked like a different side, and in the 68th minute they got their reward. Martin Olsson crossed from deep to Ricky van Wolfswinkel, who returned the ball into the box, where Anthony Pilkington was ahead of David Luiz and made it 1-1 with a header.

Yet Norwich hopes were crushed in the 85th minute when a quick counter-attack from Chelsea ended with an Eden Hazard goal. It was Alexander Tettey whose mis-control gave the ball to Hazard and Belgian shot was just too good for John Ruddy.

A minute later it was all over. This time Ramires ran into the box, but he got tackled. The ball went to the right corner of the box and from there Willian scored a screamer.

Oscar was later voted as man of the match. He was a constant a threat for the Canaries' defence and he also scored.

But the crucial decisions were taken from Jose Mourinho. When he saw that his team were having problems, he used the depth in his squad and brought Willian and Hazard in and this won the game for Chelsea.

With the victory Chelsea climbed to the third spot and are now just two points behind leaders Arsenal and Liverpool.
