  • Sportsmail looks at the history of the bitter rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte's men reached the final of the tournament last season and with the Premier League title looking out of reach, the Chelsea boss may target the FA Cup as a good source of domestic silverware.

Chelsea started the brighter of the two sides in the second period and had the better of the chances through Danny Drinkwater, Michy Batshuayi and Willian.

Championship side Norwich rarely threatened themselves but will be more content with the result than Chelsea, who also face Arsenal in the two-legged semi-finals of the Carabao Cup over the next few weeks, live on Sky Sports.

Both teams will meet in a replay at Stamford Bridge to decide who goes through into the fourth round.

Chelsea had a lot of half chances in the match, with David Luiz, Willian and Davide Zappacosta all going close with their long-range efforts.

Norwich showed promising signs in the early exchanges without every worrying Caballero, only a misunderstanding between the goalkeeper and Luiz threatening to break the deadlock.

It's claimed that David Luiz considered a move out of Chelsea in November after falling out with the manager, but in the end it was the club owner's wish that prevailed.

Steven Naismith has scored six goals in his last six matches against Chelsea in all competitions, including a hat-trick last time out in the Premier League in September 2015. When you play in this trophy you know it is very hard, but today the commitment of my players was very good. "We are a bit disappointed because it is not that often you are so close to beating a giant like Chelsea in the FA Cup". "We want to try to get to the next round".

Antonio Conte used Saturday's clash as a chance to give some of his squad players more game time, but it backfired as they struggled to create openings and will need a replay if they are to progress.

Chelsea, Conte: "Mourinho? He suffers from dementia it would seem..."
The two managers hit the headlines after failing to shake hands in November after Chelsea beat United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. He was given a ten-month ban, later reduced to four, before being acquitted of the charges.
