Ross Barkley is in line to make his Chelsea debut in next week’s FA Cup clash against Norwich City, Antonio Conte has confirmed.

Barkley is yet to make an appearance during the 2017-18 campaign but arrived at Chelsea following a £15million move from Everton in better shape than first expected.

The 24-year-old England international will not feature in Saturday’s Premier League clash at Leicester City but Conte is hopeful he will play a part in the cup clash against Championship outfit Norwich.
