FA Cup Report: Norwich City v Chelsea 06 January 2018

Chelsea stars set to return against Arsenal as Conte prioritises Carabao Cup

"When a striker plays he wants to score, but I'm pleased for his commitment and his work for the team".

Antonio Conte's men reached the final of the tournament last season and with the Premier League title looking out of reach, the Chelsea boss may target the FA Cup as a good source of domestic silverware.

Conte admitted: "For sure there is a bit of disappointment because we have another match in a schedule that is so busy".

It was the EAC's recommendations of banning microbeads that bolstered government into doing so (the full ban comes into effect this coming July).

A second-half revival by Chelsea after a lethargic first half by one of the most expensively assembled teams in the land - even if it was essentially the second string - was not enough to deny Norwich City a replay back at Stamford Bridge. Sometimes we lost our order, our combination play, but I think in the second half we did better. When you play in this trophy you know it is very hard, but today the commitment of my players was very good. "Offensively we were poor", he said. Here's how we predict Chelsea will lineup. We knew the difficulty of the game.

Chelsea came out with more goal in the second half and had a chance on 50 minutes but Angus Gunn got down well to smother Michy Batshuayi's long-range shot.

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. But that also makes this just all-around annoying, especially with the replay coming up, in which Conte will have little choice but to trot out basically the same lineup thanks. They defended very well, showed they were well organised. We tried to win the game but we must accept the final result. Hopefully, they'll produce something more than just commitment then.
