Norwich City v Chelsea

Norwich City v Chelsea

Maddison, who was spotted at Coventry City, joined Norwich for £3million two years ago this month but has only established himself this season after loan spells back with the Sky Blues and at Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen.

We expect Conte to shuffle his pack during this congested period, and we could see the likes of David Luiz and Michy Batshuayi get some much craved game-time.

The Premier League side, who reached the final of the FA Cup last season, created few chances of note after making nine changes to their starting line-up. We had difficulty offensively, we were poor.

Former Liverpool striker Owen is backing Batshuayi to produce an influential performance in Chelsea's clash against Championship side Norwich in the FA Cup third round.

The Third Round replay will take place at Stamford Bridge on the week commencing the 15th of January; the official date will be confirmed as soon as the matches for television coverage have been selected. My idea is to continue like in the past because I trust and believe in my players but, for sure, we want to try to go through to the next round.

The first half was an unforgettably forgettable one, with neither keeper being properly tested.

But Norwich managed to stem the tide and Alex Pritchard shot over in a rare second-half opening for the hosts. We tried to win the game but we must accept the final result. "When you play this trophy, especially away, it's very hard".

"It was obvious that we were pretty close to a win", said Farke.

"We have to play another game - the schedule is busy". Normally in 10 games Chelsea will win eight times and it's perhaps one time a draw - but that means there's one special day where you are able to create something special and we're looking forward to doing this.

"A replay is a good thing for the club".
