Chelsea v Norwich City (FA Cup) - Early Team News

After drawing 0-0 in the first encounter, at Carrow Road, Chelsea will be hoping to do one better in the replay at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening and secure a fourth-round tie against Newcastle United.

Ahead of the intriguing encounter we have some early team-news for you to mull over.

Starting with Chelsea:

Antonio Conte will be without the services of his Spanish midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, with the player suffering from a minor hamstring problem

Rated as doubtful is Gary Cahill, with the defender troubled by a hamstring strain he picked up against Leicester City at the weekend.

Those waiting to see Ross Barkley make his Chelsea debut, will be disappointed, it appears the player wasn`t registered in time to play.

Continuing with Norwich City:

The Norfolk side will have to make do without the services of Tom Trybull, the German midfielder has a knee injury.

However, it would appear that Tottenham Hotspur have given Norwich City permission to play their loan player, Marcus Edwards.
