  • Norwich City vs Chelsea 06/01/2018 FA Cup Preview, Odds and Predictions

Chelsea lost 2-1 to bitter rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley last season to miss out on a double in Conte's first season in charge of the west London side.

The Third Round replay will take place at Stamford Bridge on the week commencing the 15th of January; the official date will be confirmed as soon as the matches for television coverage have been selected.

The west Londoners have lifted the trophy four times in the last 11 seasons and they'll be confident of seeing-off Norwich in the third round of the competition this year.

Blues boss Conte declared: "For sure there is a bit of disappointment because to have another match in a schedule so busy is not easy, is not simple, but we tried to win the game".

David Luiz was lucky not to let Alex Pritchard midway through the first half when the Brazilian dallied on the ball - after receiving a pass from Willy Caballero on the edge of the penalty area - but, luckily for Luiz, the ball cannoned to safety.

"It's a pity because we wanted to win the game, instead we have to play another game".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte in his post-match reaction, expressed frustration of having to play a replay, adding that it was a hard game.

Chelsea were abysmal in the first half, but looked slightly brighter when they came out after the break.

The article claimed the club would be afraid of criticism, while Roman Abramovich respects the history the defender has for them.

"With these players we scored five against Stoke when you play Willian and Pedro they are creative players".

"To be honest I'm a bit disappointed it was not a win for us".
