After a summer spending spree that saw over £100 million spent on players, admittedly funded by the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, expectations are high in North London for the season ahead although given the influx of new players it will take time to gel.

That has appeared to be the case so far with a brace of Roberto Soldado penalties helping the club to wins over Crystal Palace and Swansea.

The arrival of Soldado has pushed Emmanual Adebayor down the ranking and the giant forward will once again be missing for Spurs on Saturday.

The Togo International was granted compassionate leave following the death of his brother last month and while the club have been very supportive of the striker, it would appear that his days at White Hart Lane are coming to an end.

The misfiring striker is set to be the third choice forward when he eventually returns to action although with AVB revealing that he will train with the reserves that does not appear to be any time soon.

Villas-Boas will also be without Gylfi Sigurdsson and Etienne Capoue while Aaron Lennon is struggling with an ankle injury.

The Spurs boss will be hoping to improve on last season’s efforts against the Canaries when Chris Hughton, a former coach at White Hart Lane, masterminded two score draws for Norwich.

The former Irish International has handed the club a welcome boost ahead of the game after declaration his intention to ignore interest from the Republic of Ireland in his managerial skills on focus on the task at hand with Norwich.

That immediate task is to improve on a record of just one win in their 11 away games although with summer signing Gary Hooper set to make his competitive debut expectations are high around Norfolk.

“We’re on the back of a good win and we have everyone back from international duty in good shape,” Hughton said.

“It’s always a nice feeling when you go into that break on the back of a win. Confidence is good at the moment.

“Everyone’s come through the international break well, which is a relief.”

Norwich have a decent record against Tottenham in recent years but things should be different this year.

The arrival of Roberto Soldado has given Spurs an additional attacking edge moving forward, and the ex Valencia man should make the difference at White Hart lane today, where Villas Boas men have been pretty solid, winning 10 of their last 14 games.

Back the Spaniard to grab the first goal of the game at 3/1 with Paddy Power.
