Norwich City vs. Chelsea, FA Cup: Half-time report

Chelsea defender David Luiz could play for the first time since 22 November after recovering from a knee injury and Charly Musonda could also feature.

Manager Antonio Conte has had to deny suggestions the player's extended absence has been down to a personality clash, while the Brazilian has been linked with a January exit.

Carrow Road will host the showdown.

Conte is set to rotate his starting eleven in order to give some of his key men a rest and Eden Hazard won't be risked after picking up a calf knock against Arsenal. "When you play this trophy, especially away, it's very hard". "My idea is to continue like the past and make rotations".

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. "We want to try to get to the next round".

"I'm pleased for Michy's commitment".

Asked if the Spain striker has been an effective replacement for Diego Costa, who has now joined Atletico Madrid, Conte added: "The stats are that Morata scored 12 goals this season, seven assists".

After a match of few chances, against a much-changed Blues side, City held out to earn a Stamford Bridge replay later this month and ensure their name goes into the hat for the fourth round draw.

"The club is very happy for his commitment, for this player". It's been the most uninspiring first-half display in a while, perhaps some youthful exuberance to shake things up in the second half?

"I repeat, I don't see problems with Alvaro".
