“It will be tough. They are a good side, good in possession and there is not much pressure on them so I am sure they will go for it. It will be difficult task there is no doubt about that. They are an unbelievable dangerous team and they can beat each and every opponent. Especially in the offence they have many options and they are a good footballing side, so I expect a tough test for us tomorrow."
Tony Mowbray on Norwich
“The games are all really tight, Swansea could have gone either way, was a draw, the games are tight. Is Norwich going to be any different? They’re looking for their 10th victory on the bounce, will they blow us away and score lots of goals on the day? They might do, but it might be another tight game and let’s see if we can win it 1-0 or 2-1.”
