Daniel Farke previewed Norwich City’s FA Cup fifth round trip to Tottenham - and we had all the key lines first from Colney.

The Canaries will be backed by 9,000 travelling supporters as they attempt to seal a quarter-final spot for the first time since 1992.

Farke's squad can head to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium buoyed by a 1-0 Premier League win over Leicester City and also a battling display in north London on their last visit.

Spurs hit back late to win 2-1 after Teemu Pukki's penalty had levelled matters but the Canaries were more than a match for Jose Mourinho's squad.

Christoph Zimmermann is still out with a hamstring injury and Farke revealed he is set to see a specialist after further scans. The City defender is also likely to miss out at Sheffield United this coming weekend.
