Chelsea visit Carrow Road this evening to face Norwich City in the FA Cup. There is lots of Premier League experience in this group of players though, mixed with some youthful exuberance.

Daniel Farke admitted he was a "little disappointed" after Norwich failed to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Norwich came close to a famous victory in the first half when Alex Pritchard managed to intercept David Luiz's clearance, but he was unable to keep control of the ball.

The positive aspect for Barkley is that he will have seen nothing from Chelsea's attackers at Carrow Road to suggest he will not be able to get significant pitch time for his new team sooner rather than later, regardless of Conte's notorious reluctance to rush signings into competitive action. "Offensively we were poor", he said. We tried to win the game but we must accept the final result.

"It was a pity because if he scores we win the game against Arsenal", Conte added. Sometimes we lost our order, our combination play, but I think in the second half we did better.

Jimmy Iovine reportedly leaving Apple in August
One of the chief architects of Apple's ( NASDAQ:AAPL ) push into streaming music appears set to leave the company this summer. It's unknown what the 64-year-old music mogul will do next. "I have no idea", said Iovine. "We're not even close".

"Norwich deserve to have another game".

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

"For us it is a small problem as we have to play another game when the schedule is very busy". When you play away in this competition it's not easy.

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

"With these players we scored five against Stoke when you play Willian and Pedro they are creative players". It took until the 50th minute before the game's first shot on target - a weak effort from Michy Batshuayi, which was comfortably gathered by Angus Gunn.
