FA Cup Match Preview: Tottenham Hotspur v Norwich City

4 March 2020

Norwich City resume FA Cup responsibilities on Wednesday when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round (7.45pm).

The Canaries are aiming to make it through to the quarter finals for the first time since 1992 and go into the match buoyed by their 1-0 victory over Leicester City on Friday.

Here’s our preview of Wednesday’s game:

The opposition

Since the last encounter between the two sides on January 22, Spurs have won three, lost three and drawn one of their last seven matches in all competitions.

However, three consecutive defeats have inflicted dents on their top four hopes and Champions League ambitions.

Spurs have endured replays in both rounds so far, overcoming Middlesbrough in round three and Southampton in round four.

In their fourth-round replay against the Saints, they fought from two goals behind to progress. Shane Long and Danny Ings cancelled out an early Jack Stephens own goal to put Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side ahead on 72 minutes.

However, goals in the final ten minutes from Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son (pictured) ensured Spurs' stay in the competition would continue

Jose Mourinho will be without the injured Son, Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko for the match against the Canaries.

Ref watch

Paul Tierney will oversee the fixture and be assisted by Harry Lennard and Nick Hopton. Andrew Madley will be the fourth official. Stuart Attwell and Simon Beck are overseeing VAR.

Tierney has refereed 24 games across in English football this season, dishing out 80 yellow cards and three reds in those fixtures.

Two of those dismissals came in the Premier League fixture between City and Bournemouth on January 18. Steve Cook was sent off for deliberate handball in the first-half before Ben Godfrey’s yellow card for a challenge on Callum Wilson was upgraded to a red after a VAR review.

Match Reports

City into FA Cup quarter-finals with shootout win at Spurs

4 March 2020

Tim Krul was the hero for Norwich City, saving two penalties in a dramatic penalty shootout to put Norwich City into a first FA Cup quarter-final in 28 years.

Spurs took an early lead when Jan Vertonghen nodded home a Giovani Lo Celso free-kick and it could have been more at half-time but for two outstanding saves from Tim Krul at either end of the half.

City probed in the second-half and got their reward on 78 minutes when Josip Drmic profited from poor goalkeeping to tap home after Michel Vorm parried Kenny McLean's rasping effort.

Drmic's equaliser sent the game into extra-time and then penalties, with Krul saving twice to see City prevail 3-2 on spot-kicks.

Daniel Farke made four changes to the side which beat Leicester City on Friday night. The back four remained the same but there were plenty of changes in the midfield and attacking ranks with Josip Drmic replacing Teemu Pukki up top. Lukas Rupp and Mario Vrancic came into the midfield in place of Kenny McLean and Ondrej Duda, and Tom Trybull was introduced to anchor the team in the middle in place of Alex Tettey.

Despite plenty of noise inside the stadium, largely being created by the 9,000 strong travelling support, the early exchanges were timid until Spurs broke at pace on 11 minutes. Giovani Lo Celso was found unmarked in the area but his low effort was beaten away well by Tim Krul.

Spurs took the lead moments later via a set-piece. Lo Celso turned provider after Steven Bergwijn was fouled by Emi Buendia on the left-hand side. His menacing delivery was met by Vertonghen who climbed above Jamal Lewis to head home at the back post.

Spurs went on to boss the next 20 minutes or so and their threat from wide areas was causing City issues. The pacey pair of Moura and Bergwijn were proving difficult to handle.

City finally got into their stride on the half hour mark. Rupp was found in the box on 32 minutes by Vrancic but after cutting onto his right he was crowded out and Spurs managed to clear.

Then Buendia weaved his way through the challenges to test Vorm before the Spurs keeper almost spilled into his own net from a long-range Rupp strike. City were rallying and Vrancic had a goalbound strike blocked on 36 minutes before the following corner was nodded over by Trybull.

Spurs were then presented with a terrific opportunity to double their lead on the stroke of half-time. Trybull played a pass to Vrancic in his own penalty area who was closed down by Moura but Krul was on hand to block Moura’s strike from close proximity.

The two sides traded blows at the start of the second 45. First, Vrancic clipped the ball to Drmic who chested down for Buendia but his strike was deflected over from a narrow angle.

Then substitute Gedson Fernandes shot straight at Krul before Rupp chested, volleyed and tested Vorm low to his right.

Farke made changes just after the hour mark with Kenny McLean and Adam Idah introduced in the hope of them giving City fresh impetus. The former was straight into the action, spreading a crossfield ball from left to right, with Aarons there to cut back to Drmic but his shot was dragged wide.

McLean was involved once again in City's equaliser. His thumping drive was parried by Vorm on 78 minutes but Drmic was on hand to scramble the ball home to send the away fans into raptures.

However, the goal kicked Spurs into action once more and City were having to dig deep to stay in the game. It was only level because of a sensational Godfrey block on 86 minutes after Lo Celso's strike seemed destined for the back of the net.

Spurs were almost in again on 89 minutes when a searching pass almost found the onrushing Dele Alli but Krul once again was on hand to race clear and beat the ball away from danger.

The game went into extra-time and both teams were out on their feet, although City went close just after the break when Adam Idah nodded Jamal Lewis's cross over.

The game headed to extra-time and it was City who held their nerve. Eric Dier scored the first for Spurs but it was all downhill from there with Erik Lamela, Troy Parrott and Fernandes all being thwarted. For City, Idah, Stiepermann and Cantwell struck the blows to send the Canaries through.

Spurs: Vorm, Aurier, Dier, Sanchez, Vertonghen (C), Winks (Ndombele, 81), Skipp, Lo Celso, Dele (Parrott, 97), Bergwijn (Fernandes, 54), Lucas (Lamela, 69)
