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.”
