Norwich City Under-18s will host Derby County in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup – after Manchester United were knocked out by the Rams.

Derby are currently fifth in U18 Premier League North, just two points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who they beat 2-0 in the league on Saturday.

The date and venue for the tie are yet to be confirmed but all the fourth round ties must be played by Saturday, January 20.

The young Canaries are currently scheduled to enjoy a winter break before returning to U18 Premier League South action on Saturday, January 13 when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Colney in a midday kick-off.
