Norwich vs Tottenham: Preview, Team News and Prediction

Tottenham Hotspurs will travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City on the last matchday of this season’s Premier League. They would like to secure Champions League football ahead of their North London rivals Arsenal. A win or at least, a draw is enough to hold on to their 4th position in the league table. On the other hand, Norwich has nothing to play for except pride. They will drop to Championship football again being the last boys in the PL table.

Tottenham has a long history of bottling but surely they can’t afford to throw this one. Especially against this Norwich side which lost 11 out of their last 14 games. Assuming Arsenal won’t win by a margin of 15 goals, a draw will be more than enough to seal a spot for top European competition for Spurs next season.

Another key point regarding this fixture is Son’s goal tally this season. Currently, Son Heung-Min (21) is trailing the race for Golden Boot by a goal behind Mohamed Salah (22). And against Norwich’s leaky defence he has a chance to snatch the coveted prize for the first time.

On the other hand, Norwich has the worst defence in the league. They conceded 79 goals, 4 more than 2nd worst Watford. From 37 matchdays, they managed to get only 22 points. even in the goalscoring department, they lack firepower. This is clear from the statistics that they managed to score just 23 goals, the worst in the league, 10 less than 2nd worst Watford and Burnley.
