Chelsea travel to Norwich in the FA Cup third round, as Antonio Conte looks to start his journey to winning the trophy for the first time. The Italian will be disappointed not to win the final against Arsenal last season, especially because it meant missing out on the domestic double, but going one better this season could be even more important given their Premier League title defence is faltering.

Norwich will provide a real test, particularly at Carrow Road, but the Blues should have enough to get through to the next round. The Canaries are 13th in the Championship and come into this game off the back of a crucial home win over Millwall on New Year’s Day, stretching their unbeaten run to three games. Chelsea will likely make changes, but we think they will get through with ease.

Form

The Blues head to face Arsenal before this game, but Conte’s side are going strong overall. Victory over Stoke last weekend temporarily took them second in the Premier League, ahead of Manchester United, and they have lost just once since October, at West Ham at the start of December.

Norwich have been mediocre this season but that win over Millwall could prove crucial; they are currently nine points off the playoffs, and will need to go on a good run if they are to make it.

Team News

As mentioned above, Conte may make changes at Carrow Road and it will be interesting to see if he plays unsettled star Eden Hazard. Only David Luiz (knee) is unavailable.
