Spurs v Norwich Match Report

Norwich 0-3 Spurs

You have to go back over three years for our last meeting with the Canaries, when an early Deli Alli goal was followed up with two Harry Kane strikes for a comfortable win for Spurs.

Going into the game the two sides found themselves at opposite ends of the table, with Tottenham trying to stay on the coattails of league leaders Leicester while Norwich hovered perilously above the relegation trapdoor.

Yet any hopes of an upset for Norwich were extinguished as early as the second minute of the game, when an in-form Deli Alli tapped the ball home after Christian Eriksen’s initial shot had been blocked. Alli would go on to be substituted at half time due to an illness, but not before he had been involved in the action yet again, winning a penalty for Spurs after being bundled over in the box while attempting to follow up a Harry Kane shot. Kane stepped up to take the penalty and dispatched it with ease, racking up his 7th goal in eight games in the process.

The second half was a more subdued affair, with Spurs content to keep the ball and sit on their lead, and Norwich not wishing to inflict further damage on themselves by going all out attack.

And the result was put beyond all doubt with almost the last kick of the game, Kane firing home from 15 yards after good work from Christian Eriksen had dispossessed defender Matin Olsson.

Norwich made a name for themselves in the Championship last season as one of the most exciting teams to watch, often involved in high-scoring games. Tottenham, meanwhile, will be relishing the opportunity to face a team that plays in such an open style, so expect fireworks in this one.
