Leicester face Norwich trip

Leicester City will travel to Carrow Road to play Norwich City for the fifth round of this season's FA Cup.

The two sides have met three times before in the FA Cup, with the Foxes being victorious on each occasion. That includes Carrow Road's record attendance of 43,984 set when the Canaries hosted Leicester in the sixth round in the 1962/63 season.

The tie is due to be played on the weekend of 18-19th February, although that is subject to change as the Foxes are set to play Birmingham City in the Championship the same weekend. Indeed, fixture congestion may become an issue for Leicester as they play mid-week games either side of the FA Cup fifth round weekend.
