The Norwich manager Paul Lambert
“Some teams are beaten before they even go there, but I will have my own way to deal with that,” Lambert said. “We have to go there with a belief, because if you don’t you can get turned over.

“Hopefully you will have a game plan which will try to hurt them, but that can be blown out of the water within minutes.
“You have got to respect what you are up against, you cannot go gung-ho because they will pick you off all over the place. You have got to play with your brain a bit and hopefully that is what we will do.”

Leon Barnett, Norwich defender
“We will go to Manchester United and do our best. That is all we can do. It is not going to be easy because they have star quality players, but all the lads are looking forward to it. It’s good to know we can go to Old Trafford with a smile on our faces. The shackles are off for us now.”
