The game appeared to be heading for a stalemate until the Canaries snatched a narrow advantage through a last-minute penalty from captain Cameron McGeehan after Josh Murphy was bundled over by Alex Davey.

Holders Chelsea started well and twice went close to breaking the deadlock in the first half with two efforts cleared off the line.

Nathan Ake's header was saved by City goalkeeper Will Britt and his second attempt was hacked away by Cameron Norman.

Jacob Murphy - Josh's brother - then fired just wide for Norwich before Islam Feruz almost struck for Chelsea on the stroke of half-time when his shot was headed off the line by Cameron King.

Jacob Murphy blazed over for the hosts after the restart but chances were at a premium in a tight second half with both sides appearing to have settled for a draw until the late penalty drama.

The second leg will be played at Stamford Bridge on Monday May 13, 7.45pm kick-off.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
