City draw Norwich away in the FA Cup third round

City will travel to Carrow Road in the third round of the FA Cup.

Alex Neil's Norwich City will provided the opposition in a match which will be played on Saturday 9 January at 3pm.

Tickets for the Carrow Road tie are priced in the following categories: 

Adults: £20 
65+: £18 
Under-17s: £10 
Under-12s: £5 

City met the Canaries at the Etihad Stadium on 31 October and won a tight game 2-1 thanks to goals from Nicolas Otamendi and Yaya Toure.

It's the first time the sides have met in the FA Cup since the 1980/81 season when City handed out a 6-0 thrashing to Norwich at Maine Road in the fourth round on 24 January 1981.

The Blues reached the final that season where they were beaten by a Ricky Villa-inspired Spurs in a replay.

In all, we have met Norwich three times in the FA Cup, winning two and losing one.

Our sole defeat in this fixture in the competition came in the 1962/63 season when we lost 2-1 at Maine Road, while our only previous FA Cup clash away at Norwich ended in a 5-0 City win way back on 12 January 1939.

Norwich are currently 16th in the Premier League table following their defeat to Watford last weekend.

Our last defeat to Norwich in any competition came on the final day of the 2012/13 season when Jack Rodwell scored a brace but the Canaries won 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium.
