Norwich City Team News, Updates and Facts
Norwich Team News
Daniel Farke is missing Josip Drmic, Ben Godfrey, and Timm Klose with injuries at the moment.
Norwich Key Man
The Canaries will have to just start hoping the Pukki party can reignite soon. Teemu Pukki started the season on absolute fire, but he has cooled off of late. Goals have been much harder to come by, even for the free-scoring Finn, meaning they may be headed down the drain soon if they can’t reverse the rot. In goal, Tim Krul is one to watch here. He will have to come up with some big saves in order for them to have a chance, even if Spurs aren’t quite at their best, you feel.
Norwich Team Form
Norwich have four losses and a draw in their last five matches:
1-0 loss at Aston Villa
1-2 home loss vs Wolves
1-1 draw at Leicester
1-2 home loss vs Sheffield United
2-1 loss at Southampton
Norwich Predicted Starting Line up
Expected Line up: 4-2-3-1
Norwich City likely XI
- Defenders:Aarons, Zimmermann, Hanley, Byram
- Defensive Midfielders:Stiepermann, Trybull
- Attacking Midfielders:Hernandez, Vrancic, Cantwell
Tottenham Hotspur Team News, Updates and Facts
Tottenham Team News
Jose Mourinho will be missing winger Son Heung-Min and center midfielder Harry Winks due to suspension for this tie. Hugo Lloris and Ben Davies remain out with injuries.
Tottenham Key Man
Harry Kane was at his lethal best on Boxing Day, scoring twice but having just one count. That now makes it 11 on the season for the England man, a great record that many will expect him to add to in this fixture. Alongside him, Dele Alli is just in stunning form. He scored one of the goals of the season, or any season for that matter, when he chipped home against the Seagulls with aplomb. It finished off a sterling move, too, giving Spurs a huge boost of confidence.
Tottenham Team Form
Tottenham have three wins and two losses in their last five matches:
2-1 home win vs Brighton
2-0 home loss vs Chelsea
1-2 win at Wolves
3-1 loss at Bayern Munich (UCL)

Tottenham Predicted Starting Line up
Expected Line up: 3-4-3
Tottenham Hotspur likely XI
