Indeed, with their top-four hopes very much alive, the visit of a Norwich side bottom of the table heading into today’s game offers another favourable task.
Win in front of their home support and it’ll be ten points from a possible twelve in the Premier League under Conte’s watch.
With West Ham winning and both Manchester United and Arsenal facing opposition they’ll be expected to beat today and tomorrow respectively, Spurs need a result to keep the pace with those aiming for a Champions League berth come May.
While still rooted to the foot of the league, Norwich have proven more resilient under new boss Dean Smith, going four games unbeaten in the top-flight for the first time since 2013.

Could Yaya Toure cross the North London divide?
The 38-year-old currently lives with his family in Hampstead and Standard Sport understands he would be open to a more formal role with Spurs if the possibility arises.
However, a period learning at Arsenal – the club where older brother Kolo enjoys cult status – could also be on the cards in future, with Arteta receptive to the idea of working with Toure again after their paths previously crossed during the latter’s final years at City, where Arteta served as Pep Guardiola’s coaching protege.
