Norwich City v Chelsea

That replay is likely to be played in about 10 days' time, stuck-in between the Leicester City and Brighton games, a week before going back to the Emirates for the second leg of the League Cup semifinal.

The first half was an unforgettably forgettable one, with neither keeper being properly tested. Conte is still able to field a top class side despite making plenty of changes and I think they'll be too strong for Norwich.

Norwich (3-4-3): Gunn; Hanley, Zimmermann, Klose; Pinto (C), Tettey, Trybull, Lewis; Pritchard (Wildschut 87), Maddison, Murphy (Oliveira 83).

However Brazilian defender David Luiz made a return to the Chelsea line-up after being sidelined with injury.

But Norwich managed to stem the tide and Alex Pritchard shot over in a rare second-half opening for the hosts.

And Norwich boss Daniel Farke will be expecting the phone to ring with big clubs asking them how much they want for the wonder kid after he lit up the FA Cup.

The last time City went beyond the third round was five seasons ago but there was no sign of an inferiority complex as Murphy exposed the Chelsea backline but fired harmlessly across the face of the goal and another chance went begging.

On Thursday, we covered a story from UOL which revealed the reasons David Luiz isn't leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Conte admitted that he was disappointed with the result and extra game to add to their already busy schedule, but also acknowledged that Norwich were worthy of the draw. We knew very well before we played tonight the game would be very tough.

Drinkwater stung Gunn's gloves in the 82nd minutes after a Zimmermann headed clearance dropped favourably 20 yards out, before Norwich threw on Nelson Oliveira and Yanic Wildschut to try and find a victor in the closing stages.

"Don't forget that Michy is a young player".
