Norwich City vs Tottenham Hotspur
English Premier League
Date: 28 December 2019, Saturday.
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 Central European Time
Venue: Carrow Road.
Tottenham look to raise their bid for Champions League qualification after the shortcomings against Chelsea and Manchester United when they travel to rock bottom placed Norwich City this weekend.
Norwich vs Tottenham Match Preview
Things are going from bad to worse for Norwich after they fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat to fellow relegation candidates Aston Villa on Boxing Day. The defeat put Norwich City 6 points below the safe zone.
The Canaries are now without a win in 6 EPL games (2D, 4L) and haven’t won a home game since impressing in the first three games at the Carrow Road. The last of which came against Manchester City with a 3-2 score-line, before falling 2-3 to Chelsea and defeating Newcastle 3-1.
Tottenham on the other hand, came back from a goal down to defeat Burnley 2-1 in front of their home crowd. The win pushed them up to 5th in the standings and they are likely to start at the same position on Saturday unless Wolves bag a surprise win against Manchester City.
Spurs are a work in progress, yet they are showing some excellent form in front of goal, even-though they occasionally fail to keep things at the back. Their scoring prowess alone give them an upper hand while going against a side like Norwich City, whose defensive record is one of the worst in the league.
Norwich City vs Tottenham Head-to-head Stats (h2h)
Five of the last 10 head-to-head meetings in Premier League resulted in a Tottenham win, with the remaining five splits across 3 draws and 2 Norwich wins.
Their previous season together in Premier League was 2015/16, Spurs did a double with identical 3-0 wins at home and away.
The Canaries managed just 1 home win during the period as Spurs bagged 3 wins and 1 draws in those visits to the Carrow Road.
Only 1 of their last 5 meetings at Carrow Road produced over 2.5 goals.
Norwich City vs Tottenham Prediction
This has to be one of the easiest pick of the day with Tottenham starting to fire from all cylinders and Norwich failing to find rhythm all season.
It is worth to remember that the Canaries did nothing special before or after the 3-2 drubbing of Manchester City in September. It doesn’t come as a surprise that they are struggling at the foot of the table.
Spurs to win away at the Carrow Road is priced at 1.70 odd and this is a bet to take with open arms on Saturday.
Since, Norwich conceded at least 2 goals in every home match this season, we can go a step further and take the combo – Spurs win and Over 2.5 goals priced at 2.20 odd.
For correct score tip lovers, I leave with 3-0 away win priced at 15.00 to back at low stakes.
