Norwich is currently bottom of the Premier League table but boosted their hopes of avoiding the drop with a vital 1-0 victory over Leicester City last weekend. Spurs will, however, be the favorites to advance since they will be playing at home. They have not lost an FA cup game in their new stadium.

Team News

As well as being without long-term absentees Kane, Son and Moussa Sissoko, Tottenham have also now lost Ryan Sessegnon and Hugo Lloris to injury.

Sessegnon is carrying a hip injury and Lloris has injured his groin, with both players considered major doubts for Wednesday’s clash.

Erik Lamela is another who has been struggling for fitness of late, though he is expected to be part of the squad and could even start.

Mourinho reiterated at the weekend that Troy Parrott is still not ready for senior football, but the young striker is among those pushing for inclusion, along with Tanguy Ndombele and Gedson Fernandes.

As for Norwich, Sam Byram, Onel Hernandez and Timm Klose have all been ruled out through injury.

Christoph Zimmermann remains doubtful, meanwhile, after sitting out the games with Wolves and Leicester over the past fortnight.

Depending on how seriously Farke takes this fifth-round tie, the likes of Josip Drmic, Tom Trybull and Ralf Fahrmann could all be included in the starting lineup.
