The Belgium striker, who has been linked with a January move away, features from the get go with Alvaro Morata on the bench

Michy Batshuayi has been named in the starting lineup for Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay against Norwich City on Wednesday.

The Belgium ace has been linked with a move away in January, but manager Antonio Conte has given him a chance to impress at Stamford Bridge.

David Luiz also returns to the Chelsea side, with Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata on the bench.

Championship outfit Norwich earned a replay after holding Chelsea to a 0-0 draw on January 6 and are coming into the match in good form after beating high-flying Bristol City 1-0 in their last outing.

James Maddison — who has scored seven goals in England's second tier for Norwich so far this season — starts for the visitors alongside Nelson Oliveira and Josh Murphy.
