David Luiz and Michy Batshuayi Play - Chelsea Team vs Norwich City Confirmed

Sportsmail looks at the history of the bitter rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte

Premier League champions Chelsea were held to a goalless draw away to second-tier Norwich City in a tiresome FA Cup third round tie on Saturday.

"It's a bit frustrating". When you play away in this competition it's not easy.

Chelsea came out with more goal in the second half and had a chance on 50 minutes but Angus Gunn got down well to smother Michy Batshuayi's long-range shot. It was a pity, but great commitment from our players.

The story also said that David Luiz should be available for the weekend's game against Norwich City, which was later confirmed by Antonio Conte in a press conference on Friday afternoon.

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.

I think this is an FA Cup game where we could see a shock.

"For us it is a small problem as we have to play another game when the schedule is very busy. When you play this trophy, especially away, it's very hard". We are talking about a young striker who can become one of the best in the world in the future.

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".

While Willian tried to make something happen for Chelsea, he could not find a way past Norwich's defence, with Zimmermann particularly impressive in the back three. It took until the 50th minute before the game's first shot on target - a weak effort from Michy Batshuayi, which was comfortably gathered by Angus Gunn.

Chelsea must now turn their attention to their EFL Cup semi-final first leg against Arsenal on Wednesday.
