David Luiz starts for Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup third-round game away at Norwich City.

David Luiz has been included in Chelsea's starting XI in Saturday's FA Cup third-round game away at Norwich City.

The Brazil international plays for the first time since November 22 after recovering from a knee injury in one of nine changes from Wednesday's 2-2 draw at Arsenal.

Kenedy is at left wing-back with Davide Zappacosta on the right, with Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater in the centre of midfield.

The likes of Michy Batshuayi and Willy Caballero also start for the Blues at Carrow Road.

Norwich, who are unbeaten in their last three matches, make just one change from their 2-1 win over Millwall last time out as Christoph Zimmermann comes in for Nelson Oliveira.

Norwich City: Gunn; Pinto, Hanley, Klose, Lewis; Tettey, Trybull; Pritchard, Maddison, Zimmermann; Murphy
Subs: McGovern, Husband, Vrancic, Oliveira, Watkins, Hoolahan, Wildschut

Chelsea: Caballero; Rudiger, Luiz, Cahill; Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Kenedy; Willian, Pedro, Batshuayi
Subs: Eduardo, Ampadu, Clarke-Salter, Sterling, Musonda, Hudson-Odoi, Morata
