Norwich City have failed to go past the 3rd round of FA Cup in their last 3 attempts. They last got past this stage in 2013 but was eliminated in the fourth round by League two side Luton Town. They will be hoping to progress to the 4th round this year.

Meanwhile, Saints have been plagued by Crystal Palace in their last 2 FA Cup outings. They were sacked in the 4th and 3rd round by Crystal Palace in 2015 and 2016 respectively. They will be aiming to get to the 5th round again as they did in 2014.

Norwich City vs Southampton: Prediction

The game won’t be an easy one for the saints considering their poor form in recent weeks. They will be low on Morale having lost their last 3 games and have conceded at least 2 goals on each of the last 3 games. Norwich City have been better as they started the year with a bang, having won 3-0 against Derby at home.

The game will be a tough one but we expect Norwich City to get at least a draw in the game.
