Tottenham v Norwich, Mon 15:00
After failing to win at the Stadium of Light, Tottenham risk falling behind in the race for a top four finish when Arsenal play hosts to Manchester City on Sunday, as Betfred offer value odds on the Canaries taking all three points back to Carrow Road.
However, Spurs will now be fully concentrated on getting back to winning ways on Monday when they welcome Norwich City to White Hart lane.
The Canaries also earned a point in their weekend fixture, drawing 2-2 against Everton after going behind twice.
Paul Lambert’s men have won just once in their last six fixtures and currently have the third worst form in the Premier League, losing three and drawing two of those other outings.
Despite their massively superior position, Spurs are in a similar vein of form to their Monday opponents, also winning just one match in their last six league matches, drawing three and losing the other two.
The North London outfit appear to be failing to replicate their form from the first half of the season and stuttering results suggest that Chelsea, Arsenal and even Newcastle will be fighting it out for the final Champions League spot.
Norwich’s targets are undoubtedly smaller scale but no less important to the club’s future as they search for a top half finish in their first season back in England’s top flight.
Norwich, Swansea, Sunderland, West Brom and Stoke have seamlessly created their own mini-league in tandem with the larger Premier League operation, as the hunt for a top half place seems as tight as ever.
There lies just three points between ninth and 14th as it stands and any points the Canaries can come across will be greatly appreciated but distinctly tough to come by.
Tottenham may have slipped off the standards set by themselves at the end of 2011 but have nonetheless scored an average of 2.13 goals per game at home this season and haven’t failed to score at White Hart Lane yet this campaign.
The hosts won’t be likely to bring anyone back from injury on Moday whereas Norwich are hoping to welcome Anthony Pilkington, Marc Tierney, Daniel Ayala, Decland Rudd and James Vaughan back from injury.
