Tottenham vs Norwich City: Premier League preview


While their loss to NS Mura in the Europa Conference League, albeit while fielding a second-string XI, would suggest it’s important not to get too carried away, Spurs have taken seven points from nine under the Italian’s stewardship.

Seemingly improving the more time they spend on the training ground with Conte, Sunday’s visit of Norwich City offers another favourable fixture. Dean Smith’s arrival might have yielded initial success but the manner of their performance against a ten-man Newcastle United last time out was concerning.

Indeed, while the frantic festive schedule is generally treacherous territory, Spurs could do a lot worse than following up a win over Brentford with a game against a Norwich side to have conceded the second-highest number of goals thus far.

The Premier League game is scheduled for a 14.00pm GMT kick-off on Sunday December 5, 2021.

Tottenham vs Norwich City team news

Conte no fresh injury concerns for the visit of Norwich and the Tottenham manager will surely be minded to stick with the same XI from Thursday’s 2-0 win over Brentford.

The Canaries are unbeaten in four matches so Conte will not want to take any chances by resting players, particularly as his side began to show some of the distinctive hallmarks of the Italian’s best teams against the Bees.

Indeed, any rotation is likely to be saved for Thursday’s Europa Conference League match against Rennes but fatigue could force Conte’s hand on Sunday, particularly with Norwich the second of 10 games in just 30 days.

Given how poorly Norwich have been until recently it’s difficult to imagine them overcoming a Spurs side hitting form.
