The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 1-0 defeat at home to Luton Town.

Sunday Mirror: “Currently battling to regain their League status, Luton saved their best for the world’s greatest Cup competition and thoroughly deserved their place in the fifth round.”

The Mail on Sunday: “The FA Cup, derided by critics as a faded competition, roared defiantly back into life as non-League Luton Town dumped Premier League Norwich out.”

The Observer: “Hughton acknowledged it was another low point in a season that is beginning to go badly awry for Norwich, who are 13th in the Premier League.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “Luton’s celebrations extended from Norfolk to the West Indies, where chairman Nick Owen was delivering a motivational speech on a Caribbean cruise.”
