Norwich City 1, Leicester City 2: What the nationals said
The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Leicester City.
The People: 'After the final whistle, Leicester fans crowed at their Norwich counterparts and questioned their Premier League credentials. But this was far from Lambert's first-choice side.'
The Mail on Sunday: 'Lambert's decision to omit captain Grant Holt from his squad and the substitution of Simeon Jackson were indicative of the esteem in which he holds this competition.'
The Observer: 'Given their ability, experience and remuneration, Leicester should be playing like this every week and promotion should be automatic.'

The Sunday Times: 'It seems worth pointing out that this Leicester City side cost a great deal more than Norwich City and in most cases are paid a great deal more.'
Sunday Mirror: 'The omens for Norwich were there as early as the second minute. Steve Morison, who had a lacklustre afternoon, set the standard when he blazed wide.'
