FA Cup: Moses Rested, Luiz Returns As Norwich Force Chelsea Replay

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. 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. "We want to try to get to the next round". The stalemate against Norwich was the sixth time Chelsea have failed to find the net in all competitions.

Conte was also quizzed on the confidence of striker Alvaro Morata, who struggled in Wednesday's 2-2 draw against Arsenal. Conte is on record this season saying that he does not have the required strengh in depth to compete in Europe and in the Premier League.

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

Eden Hazard, forced to shoulder an unreasonable burden since returning from a broken ankle in September, has a relatively modest return of six goals in 18 Premier League appearances - as many as Marcos Alonso.

That ultimately proved to be Chelsea's last chance of the game. It took until the 50th minute before the game's first shot on target - a weak effort from Michy Batshuayi, which was comfortably gathered by Angus Gunn. This is a Chelsea squad that has question marks over it's strength in depth.

Bad days happen (in fact, we were just talking about Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Southend at the Bridge back in 2008-09 in this same round), and at least we didn't lose - Norwich were not almost good enough for that. Norwich of the Championship is first up on the march to glory.
