Norwich City Prediction – Can Norwich find a way back?

A bitterly disappointing 1-0 defeat away at relegation rivals Aston Villa on Boxing Day dumped Norwich City to the bottom of the Premier League and although they return to Carrow Road for this important upcoming clash against Tottenham, the hosts seem to be all out of confidence.

Having lost 4 of their last 5 matches overall in the top flight along with gaining just 1 win from their last 14 matches as well, Norwich City and manager, Daniel Farke, seem to have run out of ideas as to how to dig the east anglian outfit out of their current predicament.

That rare win came in the shape of an unexpected 2-0 win away from home against a then out-of-sorts Everton side at Goodison Park, but 10 defeats out of these 14 matches tells its own story as Norwich have been incapable of keeping clean sheets.

Indeed, Norwich City possess the worst defensive record overall in the Premier League and are even 1 goal worse than a Southampton outfit that conceded 9 goals against Leicester City, and having lost 5 of their last 6 matches at home too, this looks a tough ask for the hosts here.

But one thing we can depend on are goals; 8 of Norwich’s 9 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals scored.

Tottenham Prediction – Can Tottenham move into top four?

If Chelsea lose at Arsenal and Tottenham gain all three points away from home at Norwich City this Saturday, then Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham will replace London rivals Chelsea into fourth spot, so there’s plenty at stake for both Tottenham and Norwich City in this clash.

Tottenham head into this important encounter having won 3 of their last 4 matches overall in the top flight thanks to wins against Burnley 5-0, Wolves 2-1 and their Boxing Day 2-1 home win over south coast club, Brighton.

Although Tottenham continue their ascent up the Premier League table under new manager, Mourinho, it’s interesting that the Spurs defence still hasn’t been able to tighten up at the back and the visitors have managed just 1 shut out in their last 11 matches overall.

Results away from home also continue to be a mixed bag as Tottenham have suffered defeats at Liverpool 2-1 and Manchester United 2-1 but have also picked up wins at West Ham 3-2 and the 2-1 win at Wolves.

8 of Tottenham’s 9 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals scored.


Key-Facts – Norwich City vs Tottenham

  • 8 of Norwich’s 9 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 8 of Tottenham’s 9 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals scored
  • The last two encounters between these two teams have resulted over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams will be desperate for three points here so we should see a few goals in this one.
