City kicked off 2018 with a home comeback win over Millwall, making it seven points from a possible nine since their pre-Christmas home defeat to Brentford.
They followed that with their goalless draw in the original third-round tie at Carrow Road, before earning an excellent 1-0 win at Championship promotion-chasing Bristol City on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Chelsea were held to a goalless draw at home to 10-man Leicester City and have now failed to score in three matches.
Following City’s FA Cup efforts, they return to EFL Championship action on Saturday and the much-anticipated return fixture with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United (3pm), before a Championship trip to Brentford – or an FA Cup fourth round visit from Newcastle United – the following weekend.
Each and every Norwich City first-team game, our reporters will be on the scene. If you see them – especially with their cameras – say hello.
