Norwich continued with pretty poor results in recent weeks, coming from their seventh game without a victory. This time, they suffered a narrow 1:0 loss away to Aston Villa.
The team threatened and looked like a side being closer to get the victory in the first halftime, however, Hourihane brought the Villans into the lead in the 64th minute and the Canaries were unable to properly respond even though they had some decent chances created.
Overall, the team didn’t look like a side with self-confidence in this one, but also could have gotten much better result on some other day, if their attacks were just a bit more decisive.
The team has earned just two points in the last seven Premiership rounds, being now at the rock bottom position with already seven points less than safely placed West Ham and it’s already as difficult as possible situation for them.
The Canaries continue to miss forward Drmic (8/1) and central back Godfrey (17/0) due to injuries.
After a quite disappointing and uncreative performance in a local derby game against Chelsea, players of Tottenham managed to bounce back to positive ways with a 2:1 home win over Brighton last Thursday afternoon.
However, the game wasn’t as easy as it should have been, with the guests taking the lead via Webster in the 37th minute, in the first halftime where they have threatened much more and could have scored even more.
However, the Spurs looked more concrete in the second and somewhat didn’t create that much, but still got eh victory thanks to goals from Kane and Alli twenty minutes before the end.
The side is now just a point behind the European positions and with three less than Champions League placed Chelsea, so a victory is the only target in this one.
Defensive midfielder Winks (16/0) and midfielder Sissoko (19/2) are suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Offensive midfielder Heung-MIn (16/5) is suspended due to a red card in the previous game as well. Injured are left back Davies (6/0) and goalkeeper Lloris (7/0).
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Norwich’s last 9 home games (Premier League).
Tottenham didn’t look that brilliant in their victory over Brighton last time out, but still, the team did what was needed to obtain a three-pointer.
Norwich is in a difficult situation and poor momentum now, it’s something that the Spurs should be able to exploit this time. Easy or difficult, everything except their victory here would be a huge surprise.
