Tottenham Hotspur’s season took yet another turn for the worse after they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Norwich City on penalties.
Jan Vertonghen headed Spurs into an early lead, meeting Giovani Lo Celso’s free-kick in the 13th minute and nodding past Tim Krul.
Tim Krul was the penalty hero once again for Norwich City against Spurs
Norwich equalised 12 minutes from time after a huge mistake from Vorm, with the Spurs goalkeeper spilling a routine shot from distance and Josip Drmic bundled in from close range.
Despite having a plethora of chances, Spurs were unable to break the deadlock and the game went to penalties with neither side able to break the deadlock.
And when Gedson Fernandes’ pitiful penalty pinged off Tim Krul’s outstretched glove, the Canaries sprinted the legnth of the pitch to be with their 9,000 travelling fans.
Reigning FA Cup holders Manchester City eased into the quarter-finals of the competition with a comfortable win over Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday evening.
So often their saviour, Sergio Aguero fizzed a wicked left-footed shot at goal which Joe Wildsmith just could not hold to seal a 1-0 win.

There was a hint of offside to the goal and it may have been checked had a video assistant referee been in operation.
Pep Guardiolas men were far from their clinical best at Hillsborough but, after crashing out of the FA Cup at the same stage two years ago after losing 1-0 at Wigan, there was never a hint of an upset in Yorkshire.
Wednesday have slipped out of the Sky Bet Championship play-off picture after winning only one of their nine previous league matches and City rarely ventured beyond second gear.
Wildsmith kept out Mahrez’s shot as City chased a second, while Wednesday had failed to muster an effort on target in the second half before Alex Hunt’s rare ball into City’s box just eluded fellow substitute Steven Fletcher.

Late substitute Raheem Sterling was sent on to finish the job and he was also denied by Wildsmith in time added on.
The Citizens will be joined in the hat for the quarter-final draw with their main rivals to finish second in the Premier League behind runaway leaders Liverpool.
