Eden Hazard an Injury Doubt for FA Cup Clash at Norwich City

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

"In the first half we had difficulty in attack but in the second half we created chances the second half we created chances to score. I must be pleased with the commitment for my players". We tried to win the game but we must accept the final result. Sometimes we lost our order, our combination play, but I think in the second half we did better. Right now we have a replay at Chelsea.

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.

That impressive run over the festive period has left Chelsea sitting third in the Premier League table - just one point behind Man Utd - but Antonio Conte is focussed on FA Cup matters this weekend. For us it's not simple to add another game in the schedule.

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. It was important to be good in possession, especially against a good possession team like Chelsea.

David Luiz was lucky not to let Alex Pritchard midway through the first half when the Brazilian dallied on the ball - after receiving a pass from Willy Caballero on the edge of the penalty area - but, luckily for Luiz, the ball cannoned to safety.

"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. Our target was to win the game and to try to avoid to repeat the game.

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