BASSONG'S BACK!

6 October 2013

Team Captain returns in only change from Stoke

NORWICH City Team Captain Sebastien Bassong returned to the starting line-up for Sunday's game against Chelsea, in Chris Hughton's only change from last week's victory over Stoke City.

Bassong, missing since he picked up a hamstring injury against Aston Villa a fortnight ago, replaced Ryan Bennett in the starting eleven.

Hughton otherwise kept faith with the players who earned that win, with Ricky van Wolfswinkel continuing in attack and Martin Olsson making his first home league start at left-back.

NORWICH CITY: Ruddy; Martin, Bassong (c), Turner, Olsson; Howson, Tettey, Fer; Pilkington, Snodgrass, van Wolfswinkel. Subs: Bunn (GK), Whittaker, Johnson, Hooper, Elmander, Redmond, R Bennett.
