Daniel Farke previewed Norwich City’s FA Cup quarter-final home tie against Manchester United - and we had all the key lines first from a video chat with the boss at Colney.

City’s Premier League survival bid has failed to get off the ground since the restart with two home defeats but attention turns squarely to a tilt at reaching the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1992.

Farke’s squad caused an upset to beat Tottenham on penalties in the previous round in front of 9,000 away fans in north London and it will take another against-the-odds effort to dump out the Reds at an empty Carrow Road.

The Norwich boss provided the latest fitness bulletin on those who featured against Everton in midweek. Josip Drmic is the only injury doubt from those on duty against the Toffees with an ankle injury that will require a late call.

Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann and Sam Byram (hamstring-related injuries) are out for the season.
