Results for Spurs vs Norwich

Tough conditions negotiated, what's next in the title race

8:43 am

Another game ticked off, another solid performance and another three points on a night when most of our rivals did the same.

We remain 5 points behind Leicester and 2 points behind Manchester City ahead of Watford at home at the weekend. Leicester city's next fixture is away to Manchester City which provides us with an opportunity to make things even more congested at the top.

Of course, every Spurs fan will be delighted we moved up a place into third while Arsenal fans see red, their team dropping points again, this time at home to Southampton. Some people were mistakenly calling them title favourites no so long ago. They do have Bournemouth up next and then they play Leicester City at home.

Mauricio Pochettino was obviously as delighted as we were with the result last night in what was a tough night for the players with such a strong wind affecting the flight of the ball.

“It was fantastic from the beginning. Our plan was to try to make it difficult for Norwich. It always helps when you score an early goal and the team showed a lot of maturity and consistency. I felt very proud.”

The referee had a tough night also with 30-year-old Norwich City centre-forward Dieumerci Mbokani spending all his time falling to the floor. perhaps he hasn't heard the story about crying wolf. Clearly their game plan was to win free kicks around the box and to go over at any touch. Steven Naysmith, a decent buy from Everton, did exactly the same things when with the ball in the air he looked where the defender was and made no attempt to jump for a header. Instead, he deliberately jumped into the man, went to the floor claiming a penalty. The referee was not fooled. 

To be fair to the officials, who always get abuse, but very rarely praise, they seemed to get the decisions right and referee Kevin Friend was close to them when he had to make the big calls. Our penalty was one sometimes you get, sometimes you don't, but Bassong didn't touch the ball and came in from behind. In doing so, he has to play the ball or it is a foul. It was rather soft though and I wouldn't have been happy had we conceded one like that.

To be successful we have to look forward, you can't change history, you can only make it. so what is ahead of us and our rivals. The  immediate fixtures below show a very interesting period with the top teams playing each other.

We have Watford and then a week rest before Manchester City, what do our rivals have?

Next Fixtures (Team - Position, Points, Goal Difference)
Leicester City - 1st 50 pts +18
Manchester City (a)
Arsenal (a)

Manchester City - 2nd 47pts +23
Leicester City (h)
Tottenham Hotspur (h)

Tottenham Hotspur - 3rd 45pts +26
Watford (h)
Manchester City (a)

Arsenal - 4th 45pts +15
Bournemouth (a)
Leicester City (h)

Manchester United - 5th 40pts +10
Chelsea (a)
Sunderland (a)

With another week of rest our boys will have then had a couple of weeks to recharge the batteries before a run of fixtures. It is small matters like this that are overlooked when fans who know nothing about burnout talk about burnout.

Success is attained by welcoming and facing challenges, not hiding from them or making excuses. Pochettino believes in his squad, do you? Bring on the next task.

Norwich City vs Tottenham Hotspur 

2 February 2016 19:45 hrs GMT
English Premier League (EPL)
Carrow Road, Norwich, Norfolk
Capacity 27,244


The next English Premier League game sees us play Norwich City at Carrow Road, a fairly easy stadium to drive to, having been on a few journeys to Norwich over the years. The game will hold the added interest of seeing Kevin Wimmer in action in the Premier League giving the first real chance for the supporters to have a look at him. No disrespect to Colchester United but the Premier League is rather a unique environment that not all players adapt to.

In the UK, we are restricted to radio coverage while the rest of the world can enjoy the game live. I'm sure your good friend Google will make the evening beneficial.

Norwich City vs Spurs

1:29 pm
Our Tottenham Hotspur boys face Norwich City tonight in a banana skin game. No that's not a joke about their canary yellow but a reference to a game where three points away from home is a must. It is a game that has the potential for us to slip up. We have to turn in another of the performances we have been turning in of late.

NORWICH CITY

Norwich City may hand debuts to their new loan signing from Chelsea, 22-year-old Patrick Bamford, a highly thought of young striker and fellow new recent recruit Timm Klose, a 27-year-old Swiss international centre-back.


Alex Neil will have to assess them both and weigh up the potential disruption to the side that bringing them both straight in would have before making a decision. Do the positives outweigh the negatives and what is best for the club's long-term survival prospects in the Premier League?

The Canaries shipped five goals in their last outing against Liverpool so perhaps the Swiss international signed from Milos Veljkovic's new club Wolfsburg, is needed. They do seem to be weak in this area whenever I see them. Defender Andre Wisdom is available for them once again. The 22-year-old was ineligible against his parent club Liverpool. Midfielder Gary O'Neil is unavailable as the 28-year-old was sent off against Stoke City so is serving a three-match ban that ends after this game.

Norwich City Provisional Squad: Rudd, Ruddy, Olsson, Brady, Wisdom, Martin, Klose, Bennett, Bassong, Pinto, Tettey, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Howson, Odjidja-Ofoe, Hoolahan, Jarvis, Redmond, Naismith, Bamford, Jerome, Mbokani.

Norwich manager Alex Neil: "Our home form has been good and we want to make sure we get back to winning ways.
"I don't see why Tottenham can't be considered title contenders. They're one of the best sides we've played."

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

New England midfielder Dele Alli is expected to return to the starting line-up tonight. With Spurs only having two games before another week's rest ahead of the Manchester City game, a full strength side can be expected. The talented 19-year-old Alli was an unused substitute in Saturday's 4-1 FA Cup fourth-round win at Colchester United. 
He has scored five goals and had four assists in his last 12 Premier League games.

Captain Hugo Lloris will return to the side as will rested Belgian centre-back Toby Alderweireld alongside his new partner, presumably Kevin Wimmer. Mauricio Pochettino has indicated he will, now get his chance in the Premier League to show what he can do after waiting patiently behind Jan Vertonghen. It is his job now to grab his chance and make it difficult to bring Vertonghen back in. That is the mentality all players must have if they are to stay in the side.

Jan Vertonghen is out for a prolonged period with knee ligament damage, Clinton Njie is not due to return until 5 March and midfielder Ryan Mason will be ready shortly.

Tottenham Hotspur Provisional Squad: Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier, Ben Davies, Toby Alderweireld, Kevin Wimmer, Mousa Dembele, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Tom Carroll, Nabil Bentaleb, Christian Eriksen, Josh Onomah, Nacer Chadli, Erik Lamela, Son Heung-min, Harry Kane.

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "We know Norwich is a team that had 10 days to prepare for our game, but our mentality is good, we are strong and we need to compete.
"We analysed the last few games from Norwich and they are very difficult to play."
