Many Norwich City fans watching from home were encouraged by the performance they saw from their team, despite the painful result.

Here are some of the performances that most impressed members of the national press...

Sam Wallace for The Telegraph - “There were some marvellous performances from Daniel Farke’s team, even after the red card for Timm Klose had seen them pushed back to try to contain United. Before then Todd Cantwell had scored a fine equaliser and after that there was a courageous stand from the likes of Ben Godfrey, the England Under-21 international, and the evergreen Tim Krul in goal.”

Scott Murray for The Guardian - “Daniel Farke will be proud of his team’s performance, which will have drained the batteries but may give them a little heart as they desperately try to retain their Premier League status.”

Henry Winter for The Times - “Norwich City’s goalkeeper pulled out all the stops against Manchester United. He really didn’t deserve to go out of the FA Cup. Some of his saves were routine, simply down to an experienced goalkeeper’s positioning; others were exceptional and a tribute to his enduring reflexes at 32.”
