Barkley: Conte said Chelsea's system is flawless for me

Team News Luiz Batshuayi start for Chelsea


The shootout, however, went like clockwork for Chelsea as they converted all their kicks after Nelson Oliveira had failed to score Norwich's first.

It was a first win in 2018 for Chelsea, who had drawn their four previous matches in all competitions this year.

When asked why his players had dived, Conte replied: "I don't know, but I don't want an advantage".

"Now we have to play in two days against Brighton at 12.30".

"Now we can focus on the league and get ready for the next game against Newcastle", Hazard told BBC.

Conte had made nine changes from the 0-0 draw with Leicester on Saturday, with Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Thibaut Courtois and N'Golo Kante left out of the starting line-up.

Problems on the London Underground meant kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes but the hosts did not seem affected as Danny Drinkwater and Willian both fired wide inside the opening 10 minutes, while Cesar Azpilicueta was unable to turn in Tiemoue Bakayoko's flick from a corner.

However, Norwich grew into the game and Oliveira also hit the bar after a awful backpass from Batshuayi.
