London: Chelsea ended a five-hour scoring drought before advancing in the FA Cup with a 5-3 penalty shootout win over Norwich.
Michy Batshuayi was on target for Chelsea in last night's FA Cup third-round replay at Stamford Bridge. But Jamal Lewis headed in Timm Klose's cross in the fourth minute of stoppage time for 1-1 and force extra time, when Pedro and Alvaro Morata were sent off.
Pedro, earlier booked for diving, was sent off for a second bookable offence. Morata also saw red, receiving a yellow card for diving and an immediate second yellow for his vociferous complaints, which was followed by a pitch invader furious at referee Graham Scott's handling of the game. The Blues however advanced as Willy Caballero saved from Nelson Oliveira and Eden Hazard ensured Chelsea scored all five of their spot-kicks.
