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

07 January 2018

The Premier League title is lost, Manchester City will be the side coronated come May.

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

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke, on his part, praised his team for putting up an outstanding performance against the premier league defending champions, adding that he was a big believer in the cup.

"We know it's an unbelievable task".

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.

Dillon tied it with 52 seconds left in the first. "We're good with this team at picking up each other if someone makes a mistake". Kadri managed to rip a large chunk of hair out of Thornton's beard as they were tangled up during the fight.

You always had the feeling Norwich had missed their opportunity when they dominated the first half without seriously troubling Willy Caballero.

Wastefulness in the final third was not something restricted to the hosts, with Chelsea lacking quality on their deliveries into the Norwich penalty area.

"It was a pity, but [we had] great commitment from our players". When you play in this trophy you know it is very hard, but today the commitment of my players was very good. "The schedule is very busy, we have to play two games in the Carabao Cup against Arsenal, but these are the rules and we have to respect that".

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. Right now we have a replay at Chelsea. We found a bit of difficulty we tried to win the game. For our fans and our club a really good moment. Maybe it doesn't help us for the league but I'm a big believer in the cup. Normally in 10 games Chelsea will win eight times and it's perhaps one time a draw - but that means there's one special day where you are able to create something special and we're looking forward to doing this.
