Norwich 0 Chelsea 0: James Maddison lights up boring FA Cup clash

FA Cup Preview: Norwich host runners up

Alex Pritchard was unable to react quick enough to convert that half chance, while Josh Murphy failed to add to his eight goals in all competitions with a wild effort before the half hour.

The Blues come in to the game off the back of a thrilling 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday night which means they're unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions [W5 D2 L0].

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.

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

Ice, freezing rain possible Sunday
As the cold clears out some chances for rain will move in starting Monday night, when a 30 percent chance is expected. It was so cold that SCE&G reported its customers set a new electricity usage record.

Neither keeper was really tested as City forced a Stamford Bridge replay later this month.

Norwich showed promising signs in the early exchanges without every worrying Caballero, only a misunderstanding between the goalkeeper and Luiz threatening to break the deadlock.

Meanwhile, Conte also confirmed that David Luiz is in contention to make his return from injury, which should quiet some questions about his future.

Chelsea came out with more objective 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.

Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2 leaked images show off bezels
Coming to the third phone - which is the Xperia L2 - Sony may not include Oreo - instead, the phone may come with Android Nougat. Between those bezels are an alleged 5-inch 720p display for the XA2 and a 6-inch 1080p display for the XA2 Ultra .

Daniel Farke: "Perhaps they had some advantages but we still had our chances". We are a bit disappointed because it is not that often you are so close to beating a giant like Chelsea in the FA Cup.

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

Antonio Conte: "For sure there is a bit of disappointment because to have another match in a schedule so busy is not easy, is not simple, but we tried to win the game".

Norwich responded with their own attack and nearly took the lead from a 70th minute free-kick which was punched away by Caballero with Murphy's followup volley hitting a Blues player.

A North Korean missile crashed into one of its cities a year ago
