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.'
