At the end I think Norwich deserve a replay at Stamford Bridge. "The schedule is very busy, we have to play two games in the Carabao Cup against Arsenal, but these are the rules and we have to respect that". The youthful attacking band of Josh Murphy, Alex Pritchard (who was also impressive against Chelsea for Swindon in the 13/14 season) and James Maddison have been combining well, causing our defence problems with their movement and pace.

Norwich showed promising signs in the early exchanges without every worrying Caballero, only a misunderstanding between the goalkeeper and Luiz threatening to break the deadlock. Chelsea made nine changes, with David Luiz making his first appearance since November 22 and Batshuayi, Caballero and Kenedy starting.

Willian started the second-half well and sold two Norwich defenders with a fake shot before laying off Danny Drinkwater but his shot from the edge of the box went wide of the goal.

Chelsea pressed late on but the closest they came to a victor was when Davide Zappacosta shot narrowly wide in injury-time. A draw is a totally fair result.

On Thursday, we covered a story from UOL which revealed the reasons David Luiz isn't leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window. When you play in this trophy you know it is very hard, but today the commitment of my players was very good. "We want to try to get to the next round".

The Canaries sit 13th in the Championship table after winning just 3 of their last 13 games while they've been knocked out in the third round of the FA Cup for the last four seasons so they face a tough task today.

The German came into the side in place of Nelson Oliveira and helped keep Michy Batshuayi and then Alvaro Morata quiet in a solid display.
