Norwich will look to end what has been another disappointing season in the Premier League with a win when they host Tottenham on Sunday.
The hosts ended a five-game losing run last tie out as they held Wolverhampton Wanderers to a 1-1 draw. The result also ended a run of four games without scoring a goal and give them the opportunity to at least finish in a better league position than they currently occupy.
The Canaries are currently sitting in 20th position, but are just one point behind 19th-placed Watford ahead of this round. With an estimated £5-10mil difference in prize money that would be especially helpful next Championship season up for grabs, they will be desperate to win this game.
But their form heading into this tie does not make for good reading and will not inspire confidence in even the most optimistic Norwich fans. The hosts have won just three home games this season, with all three of those home victories coming against clubs ranked 15th or lower. In contrast, when hosting the PL’s current top-seven clubs, Norwich’s six defeats from six home PL matches came at a whopping average losing margin of 3.17 goals, with five seeing them held scoreless.
Possible Norwich starting line-up
Angus Gunn; Grant Hanley, Sam Byram, Jonathan Tomkinson; Max Aarons, Brandon Williams, Mathias Normann, Lukas Rupp; Kieran Dowell, Pierre Lees-Melou; Teemu Pukki.
Injured: Ozan Kabak, Adam Idah, Josh Sargent, Christoph Zimmermann, Kenny McLean, and Andrew Bamidele
After a poor start to their season, Tottenham’s season is about to end on a very positive note if they can win this game.
The visitors put themselves in good stead for a top-four finish when they beat fellow north London side Arsenal two rounds ago. They were now put in total control of their top-four destiny when they beat Burnley 1-0 last time out while Arsenal lost to Newcastle (2-0). This means that Antonio Conte’s men come into this tie sitting two points ahead of the gunners.
A win in this game is all they need to absolutely guarantee that they play UCL football for the first time in three years. However, thanks to their superior goal difference, a draw will also be enough to confirm their place unless Arsenal thumps Everton by a record 15+ goals.
And so, they will come into this tie looking to keep their third clean sheet in a row.
Meanwhile, the north London side’s only final-day defeat over the last decade was a 2015/16 loss by a 5-1 scoreline to a Newcastle side fighting for survival when their own top-four place was already confirmed (W7, D2, L1).
But with just one defeat from their last ten PL matches (W7, D2) they will come into this tie as the favourites having also gone unbeaten in 83% of the away PL games they entered as favourites (W7, D3, L2).
Possible Tottenham starting line-up
Hugo Lloris; Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son.
Injured: Cristian Romero, Oliver Skipp, Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty
Norwich 1-3 Tottenham
