Norwich City are gunning to reach their first FA Cup quarter-final since 1992 this evening, when they take on Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur - and you can follow all the analysis and reaction with our Canaries correspondents.

City head into the FA Cup fifth round buoyed by Friday night's victory against high-flying Leicester City, when Jamal Lewis' volley ensured the Canaries got all three points in their quest for survival.

City beat fellow Premier League side Burnley 2-1 in the fourth round, with Grant Hanley and Josip Drmic's goals setting up another visit to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Mourinho's men needed a replay to get past Southampton in the previous round, with Spurs coming from behind to conquer Ralph Hassenhuttl's side 3-2.

City could be without top scorer Teemu Pukki, who was labelled as a 'major doubt' by Farke. Alex Tettey could also miss the game through illness.

The Canaries were narrowly beaten 2-1 by Spurs in January, when Heung Min Son profited from a wicked deflection off Christoph Zimmermann to restore the lead for the hosts after Pukki converted a penalty.

9,000 supporters will occupy the away end, the club's biggest travelling contingent since the Play-Off final 2015.
