Norwich City 0 Chelsea 0: Conte´s second string fail to deliver

Norwich City 0 Chelsea 0: Conte´s second string fail to deliver

Maddison, who was spotted at Coventry City, joined Norwich for £3million two years ago this month but has only established himself this season after loan spells back with the Sky Blues and at Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen.

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

Antonio Conte's men reached the final of the tournament last season and with the Premier League title looking out of reach, the Chelsea boss may target the FA Cup as a good source of domestic silverware.

"We know it's an unbelievable task".

Norwich had their first attempt on goal in the 18th minute through Josh Murphy but his shot was well saved by Willy Caballero for Chelsea.

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.

"When a striker plays he wants to score, but I'm pleased for his commitment and his work for the team. When you play this trophy, especially away, it's very hard".

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

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.

Norwich came close to a famous victory in the first half when Alex Pritchard managed to intercept David Luiz's clearance, but he was unable to keep control of the ball.

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

"We have to play another game - the schedule is busy". Maybe in the first half we could be better.

"Today it was a bigger chance to beat Chelsea than in the away game, but we will try everything", he said.
