TWITTER REACTS: Norwich's FA Cup draw with Chelsea

07 January 2018

A lacklustre Chelsea were held to a 0-0 draw by Norwich City at Carrow Road in the third round of the FA Cup. Danny Drinkwater slots into the side, with Tiemoue Bakayoko, while Willian, Pedro Rodriguez and Michy Batshuayi are in attack.

It is a fourth unbeaten game in a row for Daniel Farke's Canaries, who impressed at in defence but were shot shy in the final third, Caballero rarely tested despite a string of free-kicks in unsafe positions.

Chelsea did improve after half-time, with Willian injecting some much-needed pace and drive around the box.

"Norwich have never progressed in four previous FA Cup ties against Chelsea and the champions are expected to go through to the 4th Round at the first time of asking in what promises to be an entertaining clash", Owen told BetVictor.

At Hood River, Ore., a 90 percent chance of rain, possibly mixed with freezing rain is forecast for Friday morning through night. The National Weather Service , Jackson, Miss., issued a hard freeze warning for Northeast Louisiana through today (Wednesday).

Chelsea are unbeaten in 13 matches against Norwich in all competitions since a 3-0 defeat in December 1994 under Glenn Hoddle. At the end I think Norwich deserve a replay at Stamford Bridge.

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.

The hosts looked comfortable in defence and also created opportunities, with Josh Murphy dragging a shot wide from inside the box and James Maddison firing over the bar late in the half.

At worst, Chelsea should be getting second or third.

A search and rescue operation has been launched, but fog and darkness are hampering the process. The rescued persons were shifted to hospital, they added.

With 16 minutes remaining, Conte replaced the misfiring Batshuayi with Alvaro Morata, but even his first-choice striker was unable to provide a victor.

Chelsea welcome David Luiz back in to the squad after he recovered from a knee injury that's restricted him to just one appearance since October and the Brazilian global is expected to start this evening.

The result means yet another match for Chelsea in an already busy schedule.
