The last thing either of these sides will want is a replay. Norwich’s victory over Leicester on Friday night ensured they kept within touching distance of their relegation rivals, though with Watford and West Ham both tasting victory, they’ll need a few more performances like that to ensure they have a chance of staying up.
Spurs are in a rollercoaster battle for the top four, and with the majority of their competition dropping points with relative ease there is a real opportunity for one side to stand up and be counted.
With that in mind, it’s safe to say this competition isn’t the focal point of the season for either side, and both will likely have an offensive approach to the game.
As expected, the hosts remain strong favourites considering their home record under the ‘Special One’ while his record in cup competition is quite staggering.
In 102 matches across the FA Cup, League Cup, Copa del Rey and Coppa Italia, Mourinho has a record of W74-D11-L17, winning seven of those titles and all of them at least once.
However, in his four cup games in charge of Spurs, he’s gone W2-D2, scraping through both previous rounds by a single goal has been taken to replays by both Middlesbrough and Southampton.
Son Heung-min scored in both legs against the Saints in round four, though he’ll be absent for this one, meaning Spurs will have to make do without their two most prolific forwards again with the long-term injury to Harry Kane.
When both haven’t played this year, the Lilywhites are just W5-D5-L4 in the league as goals are extremely hard to come by.
They’ve lost all three games since Son was added to the injury list, failing to score against Leipzig before relying on a fortunate own goal as a consolation against Chelsea and we can see them struggling to break down a resolute Canaries side.
Norwich +1.0 Asian Handicap
Daniel Farke’s men have seen improved performances of late, and while results aren’t exactly what they’d have hoped for, they’ve still only lost four of their last 11 across all competitions.
While they often haven’t been able to get over the line in games, they often manage to keep them tight.
They’ve only lost two of their last 18 matches by more than the solitary strike, and with Spurs’ output really taking a hit, the handicap appeals, especially considering the hosts have only won by more than that margin in one of their last 18 matches.
