Norwich vs Chelsea (By: TFB)
It's the FA Cup 3rd round in England and this is where the big boys join the competition. In this match Championship side Norwich welcome the Premier League champions at Carrow Road.
It's not very often Chelsea are involved in a cup upset. In 2015 they were beaten 4-2 by Bradford City but that is all bar a couple of uncharacteristic draws many years ago. It would be a surprise if Chelsea didn't come through with a straight win, after all, a replay is the last thing a top Premier League side needs!
Their match against Arsenal 3 days prior will give Conte a slight selection headache. He will obviously go strong for the trip to the Emirates but Chelsea do have a bunch of players on the bench who are still better than anyone Norwich can field so the Blues should still be big favourites come kick-off on Saturday.
The home side probably haven't had the season their fans expected. They are currently a mid-table side and do not look like mounting much of a promotion challenge this season. They haven't got much of an FA Cup record either, failing to get passed the 4th round for the last 5 years. Going past round 3 this year would shock everyone!
