Norwich 0-0 Chelsea player ratings, stats and reaction: Chelsea play out bore draw as Blues forced to replay by plucky Canaries

Chelsea were held to a bore 0-0 draw by Championship side Norwich in the third round of the FA Cup this evening.

Chances were very limited throughout the entire match, with the best one falling to Brazilian winger Willian, however the forward saw his shot fired straight at ‘keeper Angus Gunn.

Following the result, this now means that the west London side will have to endured a replay with the Canaries, something that manager Antonio Conte would’ve been looking to avoid.

In a match where quality was absent, Chelsea winger Willian stood out from the crowd with his performances tonight.
