The first-half of Chelsea vs Norwich was dull, to say the least.
Just like how Chelsea’s three previous matches finished, the scoreline was 0-0 at the break with the Premier League side barely threatening the Championship outfit.
It meant that Antonio Conte’s side have now gone more than 300 minutes without a goal – with the fringe players that were on show doing very little to prove that they deserved a regular starting place.
However, there was one moment during the opening 45 minutes that was worth talking about.
Kenedy was given a rare start and the Brazilian would have been looking to impress considering Newcastle are reportedly interested in the 21-year-old.
And while the winger didn’t do too much in the opening 40 minutes to impress Rafa Benitez, what he did just before half-time was special.
In the week that Brazilian legend Ronaldinho retired, Kenedy produced a skill that the former Barcelona star was famous for – a flip-flap.
Kenedy pulled off one of those through the legs of Ivo Pinto before being brought down.
It was rather brilliant.
While Chelsea fans enjoyed the skill, so too did one of the Chelsea players sitting on the bench.
Club captain Gary Cahill wasn’t in the squad for the replay against Norwich but his reaction in the stands to the skill was seen by plenty of fans.

CONTE ON KENEDY’S FIRST-TEAM FUTURE
Last month, Conte spoke about Kenedy’s future and urged him to give him a selection headache by performing well.
“I hope to have this type of problem,” Conte said. “Before taking a decision for the starting XI if a player plays or not, the last part of the body I look at is the head.
“They don’t play because they’re a ‘big player’ or a ‘name’. This is not my idea of football, my behaviour.
“I like to make a decision on what I see in training or in games. If they deserve to play, they play.”
