Tottenham

Tottenham suffered its first taste of defeat in the hands of Arsenal after the club bowed down to a 1- 0. Nevertheless, despite the disappointing result, the Spurs remain a powerful club in the pitch.

 

Regardless of losing to Arsenal, the club sits comfortably on the 6th spot of the Premier League. For supporters, the mere fact that the club perform much better than reigning champs, Manchester United is more than enough to restore their faith in the squad. And why not? Compared to other team, the Spurs has 2 wins under its belt. Indeed, it lost Gareth Bale to Real Madrid. But still, the battle against Arsenal proved their strength. As a matter of fact, there is a high possibility for the match to end in a draw, if not for their apparent lack of experience.

 

Going against Norwich, 2 of its players will not make it on the pitch. Lennon for one is nursing a foot injury, while Assou-Ekotto is suffering from an injured knee.

 

Norwich

After a major upset from the 10-man hull, Norwich secured its first victory of the season when the young player, Nathan Redmond scored the Canaries’ winning goal.
Redmond’s impressive performance sparked Chris Hughton’s hopes for the Canaries. The club has not been living to expectations ever since the season started and with Redmond generating the squad’s first win, they hope to replicate the same result when they go against the Spurs. However, the club will be playing without Bennett as he is suffering from a knee injury.

 

Asian bookie tip: Tottenham Fires 2 Goals

There is a high possibility for Tottenham to dominate possession and Chris Hughton should be wary of that. Since the Canaries will be playing in a different territory, the club needs to focus on their scoring. The Spurs won their last 4 matches at home. What is even more terrifying is the fact that they have kept a clean sheet in the 3 of it. The Canaries cannot afford to let this happen. Otherwise, they might see themselves in the relegation zone.

 

Tottenham is chosen as the match’s heavy favorites and will most likely score 2 goals.
