Chelsea FC on Tuesday scored the quickest goal in the English Premier League this season to set the club on its way to a 2-1 win over Norwich.

Young Brazilian, Kenedy scored after 39 seconds with a shot into the bottom corner from just outside the penalty area.

Diego Costa added Chelsea's second goal just before halftime.

Norwich winger Nathan Redmond scored the team's consolation goal from a tight angle after 68 minutes.

Chelsea, however, hung on for a win that provisionally left the team five points off a Europa League place, as its fine run of form under interim manager Guus Hiddink continued.

Norwich has not won a match in its last seven league games and has dropped into the relegation zone on 24 points.
