Chelsea are through to the next round of the FA Cup after the penalty shootout win against Norwich.

 The Blues will meet Newcastle at home after beating the Canaries in a tense penalty shootout.

The Blues took the lead thanks to Michy Batshuayi’s tap-in, however right at the death of normal time Jamal Lewis nodded home to equalise for the Canaries.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admite he is worried about the players’ physical condition and hopes they will be ready for Saturday’s visit to Brighton.

Conte said: “We have to play in two days against Brighton. We have to try to recover very well. I hope we don’t pay. My decision was clear to try to go to the next round tonight and give some rest for some players.

“It will not be easy against Brighton. We face many problems and two red cards. Pedro and Morata are not available.”
