Norwich will host Manchester City in 1/32 finals of FA Cup. Norwich currently occupies decent 15th position at the table and has six points more than first team in relegation zone. As newcomers in Premier league they are struggling to find their form, in previous round they celebrated over Southampton while before that were better than Aston Villa and that is first time from start of this season that Norwich managed to achieve two consecutive victories. In previous 20 rounds of Premier league Norwich scored 23 goals while conceded 32 and their defense is among the worsts in league. Their main target is to keep their Premier league status and if continue with results like in last two rounds for sure will achieve that, but now they are facing with one of the strongest teams in England and it will be very hard to achieve positive outcome and progress further in FA Cup. Greatest success in FA Cup Norwich achieved in 1992 when they reached semi finals, not they have a very hard obstacle to overcome and they must show really outstanding performances here to achieve positive result here in front of their fans.
Manchester City on the other hand is coming to this match after being defeated in first leg of Capital One Cup by Everton on the road 2:1. Citizens are currently at third position at the table in Premier league with three points less than first placed Arsenal and one point less than second Leicester. They are playing great offensive football, with 39 goals scored are most effective team in league while also did a god job in defense. Manchester City has positive record in duels against Norwich, in last five matches they celebrated three times, got one draw and suffered only one defeat. They are favorites here and for sure will give their best to achieve another positive result, citizens are one of main candidates for winning a title in Premier league, they also managed to reach knockout stage in Champions league and for sure will be seeking for the title in FA Cup, they have a great team and can achieve good results.
Norwich seems to be in a good shape at the moment but they must show great performances here to achieve positive result, while Manchester City is coming here after defeat in League Cup and they must go for a victory here and try to win the title in FA Cup after five seasons, I expect great match with plenty of chances and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
