After a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup third round replay between Chelsea and Norwich at Stamford Bridge, the Blues went through to the next round of the competition, courtesy of a 5-3 penalty shootout win.

See how the players are rated from this game:

Caballero: He was the hero of the night as he saved a penalty for Chelsea to help win the shootout. Was also good in the game and made a good save in the second half from a one-on-one situation. 8/10

Azpilicueta: The Spaniard had a good game and was largely untroubled by Norwich’s attack. Missed  a good chance early in the game. Scored his penalty with a powerful finish. 7/10

Luiz: Was at fault for Norwich’s late goal as he left his marker in just a moment loss of concentration. Scored a superb penalty in the shootout. 6/10

Ampadu: A comfortable day in office for the young defender before being subbed off late in the game. 6/10

Drinkwater: Had a decent game and had one good shot in the first half that rattled the bar. 6/10

Bakayoko: Average performance from the Frenchman. 5/10

Kenedy: Did well to assist Batshuayi for his goal, but looked below par at times. 6/10

Zappacosta: Could have done better with his delivery at times. His play looked uninspiring on some occasions. 5/10

Pedro: Got a red card in extra time, and had a lot of running in the game. Not his best of games. 5/10

Willian: Was probably Chelsea’s liveliest player in normal time, but the rest of the team weren’t on his level. Scored a good shot for his penalty. 7/10

Batshuayi: Scored Chelsea’s only goal with a nice finish before being taken off for Morata late in the game. 7/10

Subs

Morata: Replaced Batshuayi and got sent off for simulation and his reaction to the referee shortly afterwards prompted another yellow card. 6/10

Christensen: Gave a good account of himself after coming on for Ampadu with his confidence on the ball. 6/10

Kante: Came on for the final minutes of normal time and had a good showing in extra time. Scored a good penalty kick. 7/10

Hazard: Was Chelsea’s liveliest when he came on for the second half in extra time. Scored Chelsea’s fifth penalty to send Chelsea through to the fourth round of the FA Cup. 7/10

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
