Josh Murphy: Stamford Bridge holds special memories

15 January 2018

Josh Murphy wants to add to his fond memories of Stamford Bridge when Norwich City take on Chelsea in their Emirates FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday (7:45pm).

The winger starred for the Canaries' Under-18s back in 2013 as they lifted the FA Youth Cup, producing a scintilating personal display to help defeat the Blues in the final.

Speaking exclusively to Norwich City TV, Murphy said: "It's nearly five years ago now, but it feels like yesterday.

"Those are memories that I will have throughout my whole career. It was a great achievement, having grown up through the Academy at Norwich.

"Hopefully we can go there as our current team and put in a strong performance. It's all about not letting the occasion get the better of you.

"With the squad we've got, even the younger guys have good experience so we're going there looking to do something."

Now a regular in Daniel Farke's senior side, the 22-year-old believes holding the Premier League champions at Carrow Road is evidence City can find a way to progress to the next round.

"It's all about raising your game, you've got to work as hard as you can," he added.

"It's a stage where you've got to prove yourself. They will do their homework on us, and we'll do our homework on them.

"We want to replicate our performance at home, but add goals to that. If the fans can fill the stadium out how they did at Arsenal, it would give us a massive push.

"If they're behind us, anything can happen."
