David Luiz is available for Chelsea’s FA Cup game at Norwich but Eden Hazard looks unlikely to be involved.

Antonio Conte plans to make changes for Saturday’s third-round tie at Carrow Road, with a number of fringe players expected to get a chance to impress.

The Blues boss confirmed on Friday afternoon that Luiz, who has not featured since the Champions League win over Qarabag in November, is set to return.

Conte added that Hazard is nursing a calf problem.

“David Luiz is ready and will be in contention for tomorrow’s game,” Conte said.

“The only problem we have is Hazard. He had a kick in his calf and we have to solve this problem.”
