Chelsea defender David Luiz could play for the first time since 22 November after recovering from a knee injury and Charly Musonda could also feature.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is expected to rest several key men on Saturday.

Chelsea's fixture list is set to get more congested after they drew 0-0 with Norwich City in the FA Cup, meaning they will need a replay.

He was not at all fazed facing the likes of Brazilian defender David Luiz and England global Gary Cahill.

"When you play every two days, you have to make many rotations". It was a pity, but great commitment from our 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.

Sununu said he still believes the Rivada plan is the better option for New Hampshire, but determined the risks are too great. The release mentioned "first responder subscribers", but did not specifically say how the network will be paid for.

While Antonio Conte did make a lot of changes, he still fielded a very strong side which included nine global players and saw the return of David Luiz after his seven-week sabbatical after condemning his manager's tactics earlier in the season.

"I'm pleased for Michy's commitment. He has to continue in this way and for sure this situation will change". The loss of Diego Costa to Atletico Madrid is sort of null and void as Costa was not available for Conte all season but it highlights the fact that Chelsea have just two experienced strikers in the squad.

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.

The first half was an unforgettably forgettable one, with neither keeper being properly tested.

"I repeat, I don't see problems with Alvaro".
