FA Cup: *Chelsea 1-1 Norwich (AET 5-3)

Nine-man Chelsea needed extra time and penalties to see off Norwich City and move into the FA Cup fourth round on Wednesday.
Substitute Eden Hazard spared Chelsea’s blushes by scoring the winning penalty in a shootout, after their FA Cup replay against Norwich City had ended 1-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Belgium forward Hazard coolly slotted home Chelsea’s final penalty to earn an unassailable 5-3 lead after Willy Caballero had saved from Canaries striker Nelson Oliveira to finally end the Championship side’s resistance.

Chelsea were clinical from the spot after a frustrating third-round replay that saw them miss a host of chances, have three penalty appeals turned down and Pedro and Alvaro Morata sent off.

Michy Batshuayi had given Chelsea the lead after 55 minutes with the Blues’ first goal since Marcos Alonso’s 84th-minute strike against Arsenal on January 3.
