Norwich City's FA Cup third round replay has been chosen for TV broadcast by the BBC and moved to Wednesday, January 17 – and will also be included in a trial of video assistant referees.

The match at the Blues' 42,000 capacity Stamford Bridge stadium will be a 7.45pm kick-off, with both clubs to find out their potential opponents in the next round during this evening's fourth round draw.

City have been allocated 6,000 tickets for the replay, with tickets priced at £30 for adults and £15 for concessions.

The match against the Premier League giants is also set to feature a video assistant referee (VAR) as part of a current trail of the system in English football, which begins tonight in the one remaining third round tie when Brighton host Crystal Palace.

The replay follows this Saturday's trip to Bristol City in the Championship this Saturday, when Chelsea host Leicester City in the Premier League, with both 3pm kick-offs.

The Canaries will then follow the replay with a Carrow Road league game against Sheffield United the next Saturday, when Chelsea will go to Brighton in the top flight.
