Norwich 0 Chelsea 0: James Maddison lights up boring FA Cup clash

Chelsea made nine changes, with David Luiz making his first appearance since November 22 and Batshuayi, Caballero and Kenedy starting.

Antonio Conte's men will enter the clash as firm favourites after a string of promising performances.

David Luiz fired a free-kick just wide in the 77th minute as last season's runners-up began to apply the pressure but Murphy offered a response two minutes later, controlling a wonderful ball forward from Pritchard but blazing high and wide from 30 yards. When you play in this trophy you know it is very hard, but today the commitment of my players was very good. My idea is to continue like the past and make rotations. It was a pity, but great commitment from our players. "We want to try to get to the next round".

The Blues come in to the game off the back of a thrilling 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday night which means they're unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions [W5 D2 L0].

Murray to face Harrison in Brisbane second round
I didn't realise until these last few months just how much I love this game. I don't mind if it's 30 in the world level.

"In the first half we had difficulty to attack but in the second half we created chances to score", he told reporters.

Antonio Conte's response was to throw on £60million summer signing Alvaro Morata in place of the ineffective Michy Batshuayi up front, the Blues top scorer, with 12 goals to his names since signing from Real Madrid. Conte is still able to field a top class side despite making plenty of changes and I think they'll be too strong for Norwich. It is his first season playing with regularity and I am very happy.

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.
