Norwich City have been drawn away to Burnley or Everton in the FA Youth Cup fifth round.

The Canaries are the only side through to the last 16 so far after their victory over Stoke on penalties at Carrow Road on Wednesday night.

The draw could provide a repeat of City's epic clashes with Everton in the final of the competition in 1983, when Dave Stringer's youth team won a Goodison Park replay 1-0 with a goal by Paul Clayton after the initial two-leg final finished 5-5 on aggregate.
