Blues fans react angrily to FA Cup performance

Chelsea fans have reacted angrily to their sides disappointing performance in the FA Cup third round.

Antonio Conte’s side were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw at Carrow Road by Championship side Norwich City, meaning the tie will now be decided in a reply in at Stamford Bridge at a later date.

Despite having 16 shots on goal, the Blues couldn’t find the Norwich net, and were fortunate not to have fell foul of the Canaries had it not been for first half misses from Josh Murphy and Alex Pritchard.

Club record signing Alvaro Morata was introduced late on, but could not break the deadlock.

Speaking after the game, Antonio Conte said: “It’s a bit frustrating. We knew the difficulty of the game. When you play away in this competition it’s not easy. It was a pity, but [we had] great commitment from our players. We tried to win the game but we must accept the final result.

“In the first half we had difficulty in attack but in the second half we created chances to score.

“We have to play another game – the schedule is busy.”

Conte seems not to be the only one who has been left frustrated …
