After a relegation six-pointer with Villa on Boxing Day, Norwich have a very different kind of assignment here and unlike their opponents, don’t have the squad depth to be able to rotate and rest one or two players to freshen things up.
The Canaries’ chances of getting something from this clash are hit by the fact they’ve lost five of six winless matches at Carrow Road since October, though the results at the beginning of this run were certainly worse.
A 5-1 defeat by Villa was the low point of their season, losing by a two-goal margin to Man Utd was not unexpected, though another to Watford was less excusable.
However, their last three on home turf have seen them hold Arsenal to a 2-2 stalemate and lose narrowly by 2-1 scorelines to top-half outfits Sheffield Utd and Wolves.
Spurs To Win And Both Teams To Score
Add into the mix a recent point taken away from the King Power when they visited Leicester, and Norwich have shown they can, on occasion, be dangerous when facing the better teams.
They also stunned Man City earlier in the campaign with that 3-2 win at this venue back in September, so Spurs will likely have to work hard for the points.
That’s especially the case given Spurs have only won two of 15 league trips since February, though this term alone they’re W2-D3-L4 in such fixtures as both victories have come in their last three under Jose Mourinho.
The former Chelsea and Man Utd boss knows how to grind out a win, though with both teams scoring in eight of those nine away games this term, backing the hosts to grab a consolation effort appears profitable.
Spurs To Beat Norwich 2-1
Prior to their trip to Villa on Boxing Day, both teams have scored in each of Norwich’s past five games, with Daniel Farke’s men losing three of these games by 2-1 scorelines.
In fact, both teams have found the net in all but one of their nine home games this season, though they did still lose six of these.
Given both teams have also scored in all six of the Canaries’ encounters with either the ‘Big Six’ or Leicester, we’d expect the same to happen again.
