Norwich City have both four changes to their starting XI for this evening’s FA Cup fifth round tie at Tottenham, with the hosts making three changes.

Josip Drmic makes just his second start in a City shirt, having scored at Burnley in the last round on his other start, with Teemu Pukki on the bench due to injury.

Pukki is alongside Alex Tettey among the substitutes despite illness, with Kenny McLean and Ondrej Duda also dropping to the bench and Tom Trybull, Mario Vrancic and Lukas Rupp coming into midfield.

The Canaries progressed to the fifth round with a 4-2 win at Championship side Preston and a 2-1 win away to top-flight rivals Burnley.

Spurs bring Michel Vorm into goal in place of Paulo Gazzaniga, following the 3-2 loss to Wolves in the Premier League on Sunday.

Jan Vertonghen comes in at left-back in place of Japhet Tanganga, with Eric Dier dropping back and Oliver Skipp coming in alongside Harry Winks in midfield, with Ben Davies missing out completely.

Tottenham needed replays in both the third and fourth round, drawing 1-1 away to Championship side Middlesbrough ahead of a 2-1 home win and drawing 1-1 against Southampton before a 3-2 home success.
