Iwan Roberts: Break could be good for Norwich City

With Watford playing Crystal Palace on Sunday in the FA Cup semi-final it means that Norwich have a free weekend, which I don't think is a bad thing.
It means City can gather their thoughts and make sure they are mentally and physically right to go into their final four games.
Both Newcastle and Sunderland have very difficult games. Sunderland are at home to hit-and-miss Arsenal while Newcastle travel to Anfield where they haven't won in their last 21 visits there. Fingers crossed Liverpool make it 22 today come 5pm.
We all know that the club's next couple of games are going to be very tough indeed and anything they get out of Arsenal and Manchester United will be a massive bonus.
The lads seem to keep their best performances for the bigger teams so let's hope that this is the case in the next two games as if they don't, they could quite easily find themselves in the bottom three with just two games to go.

The final two games against Watford and Everton are going to be huge and there's every chance the lads might need to pick up maximum points to keep their Premier League status.
The players are going to have to handle the massive pressure that these games will bring – something they didn't do against Sunderland.

I think they are more than capable of beating a Watford side who have been sliding down the league at an alarming rate since January and Everton have been anything but convincing this season, especially at Goodison Park where they have lost eight of their 17 games while conceding 28 goals in doing so. Only bottom club Villa have conceded more goals at home.
Those stats alone should give us all hope in those last two games and with a bit of luck both Watford and Everton will win their respective semi-finals this weekend, which will mean that they might be a bit distracted before playing Norwich as they would have the FA Cup final on the horizon.
