Spurs will have the chance to break their four game winless run in the Premier League when they play host to Norwich City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

In their last outing on Saturday, Jose Mourinho’s men fired blank at Vicarage Road against Watford with goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga saving a penalty from Troy Deeney.

The Canaries on the other hand picked up a crucial victory over relegation rivals Bournemouth but are still five points away from safety.

Head to Head

Tottenham have won their last two Premier League home games against Norwich, 2-0 in September 2013 and 3-0 in December 2015.

Following their 2-2 draw at Carrow Road in the reverse fixture, Norwich are looking to avoid defeat in both Premier League meetings with Spurs for only the second time in a Premier League season (also in 2012-13).

After winning 20 consecutive Premier League home games against promoted sides between 2012-2018, Tottenham have failed to win two of their last three such matches – losing 1-3 against Wolves last season and drawing 1-1 with Sheffield United this term.

Away from home, Norwich haven’t won any of their last 15 evening kick-offs (7pm or later) in the Premier League, drawing five and losing 10, since winning 2-1 at Ipswich in September 1994.

Spurs have won their last nine Premier League home games played on a Wednesday, since a 0-1 loss against Leicester in January 2016.


Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Hugo Lloris remain long-term absentees, with the former duo not expected back until April while the latter has started training. Ben Davies and Tanguy Ndombele are nearing returns but Wednesday will likely prove too soon.


Danny Rose could however be restored back into the starting line-up having missed the stalemate with the Hornets.

Ben Godfrey after a return to the team will have to serve suspension for the red card he picked up against Bournemouth on Saturday. Timm Klose remains sidelined with a knee injury.


Tottenham: Gazzaniga; Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Tanganga; Lo Celso, Winks, Fernandes; Alli, Son, Lucas

Norwich: Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann, Hanley, Byram; Tettey, McLean, Buendia, Duda, Cantwell; Pukki.
