Match Preview: Spurs v Norwich City
Tottenham Stadium 2 pm.
After a good result on Thursday against Brentford, let us hope we continue undefeated in the league under Conte’s command.
Antonio Conte is again without the injured Giovani Lo Celso, and Cristian Romero is out until the new year.
Mathias Normann remains out with a pelvic issue. Milot Rashica has been ruled out for up to a month, but Todd Cantwell is available.
My thoughts and prediction
Norwich are unbeaten in four games. They have worked hard to get their points, however, I feel that they will succumb to our stronger squad.
We have beaten Norwich in three consecutive home league games for the first time since a run of five between 1989 and 1993.
Two of Norwich’s three Premier League victories against us have come away from home in December 1993 and April 2012.
We have won all three of our home matches under Antonio Conte in all competitions.
Only Norwich and Wolves have scored fewer goals in the top flight than the 13 by us this season.
We have won 28 of our last 32 home league games against promoted sides, including each of our last three without conceding.
Harry Kane has scored five goals in three league appearances against Norwich.
We have won six of our last seven Premier League home fixtures played on a Sunday.
Norwich are unbeaten in four Premier League games for the first time since February 2013. Their eight points during that spell is two more than they managed in their previous 25 top-flight fixtures.
Teemu Pukki has scored three goals in his last four Premier League appearances, matching his total from the previous 24 top-flight games. This season, he has scored 63% of Norwich’s Premier League goals, the highest proportion in the top flight.
The Canaries are on 99 wins and 299 defeats in top-flight away matches.
My possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Reguilon; Lucas, Kane, Son
