Tottenham vs Norwich Match Preview
It’s so unlike of Jose Mourinho to not have his team in the top-most tier. Given that he was given the charge of the squad just a while back, but still, several match-days after, he has failed to show a clear influence of his arrival.
Tottenham management have already shown their willingness to cut short a contract with a manager that took them till the cusp of European glory last season, and Jose should not expect any less of a treatment if he fails to deliver.
Time’s ticking for the Portuguese.
Tottenham vs Norwich Prediction
Tottenham were held to a 0-0 draw on the road by the in-form Watford the last match-day. It was more of a relief for the Spurs, as Troy Deeney failed to convert the penalty awarded for his team.
Elsewhere, Norwich recorded a much-needed win the prior game week. However, they were at home, and had taken on the worst team in the league other than themselves, Bournemouth.
As things stand this Wednesday, Spurs are the overwhelming favorites. First and foremost they are one of the elite teams in England, and had made a run to the final of the Champions League last season. On top of that the team have the home advantage too.
On the other hand, Norwich were plying their trade in the lower division the prior season, and are the dead-last placed team in the PL as of now. They also have to wade through the away handicap this game week.
In addition, not only are they the 20th placed team in the table, but Norwich also are the worst team on the road, and have conceded the most number of goals in the league.
Moreover, the Spurs recorded wins in three of the previous five h2h clashes, and drew one. They also managed to score twice or more in four of these five match-ups, and at this venue, recorded a combined scoreline of 5-0 from the prior two h2h encounters.
Furthermore, this past two decades, only once have Norwich won at Tottenham’s home ground, and the sole victory had come eight years back.
Considering all these observations, it’s adjudged that the hosts Tottenham are the clear favorites to deliver the three points this Wednesday.
