Tottenham Hotspur Preview – Honeymoon period over for Jose?

Jose Mourinho lost a third consecutive match for only the fourth time in his managerial career on Sunday, as his Tottenham side were downed 3-2 in North London by a spirited Wolves. He later claimed the outcome was harsh on his players, while he was probably mystified at how they not only failed to retain two separate leads – given to them by Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier – but could produce no response once falling behind late on.

That loss leaves them trailing the Premier League’s top four by five points and are by no means guaranteed European football next season via the league, with a host of sides also in contention. Their situation in the Champions League is perilous meanwhile, trailing RB Leipzig 1-0 ahead of the return leg in Germany. Therefore, this competition could well represent the club’s best route back into Europe.

Not that Spurs have entirely convinced in this tournament, either. Replays were required against Middlesbrough and Southampton with all four matches high on goalmouth entertainment (both teams scored in all four), something which has become a regular theme since the appointment of Mourinho. With no clean sheet in the last five games, it would be a surprise were this FA Cup clash to buck the trend.

Norwich City Preview – Belief restored after Leicester scalp?

For less than 24 hours, hope sprung eternal in Norfolk following Friday’s hard-fought 1-0 victory at home to a Leicester City team currently on course to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Unfortunately the win was slightly overshadowed by results elsewhere that weekend, as those teams in and around them in the battle to avoid relegation defied form and, in one particular case, all logic to record big wins of their own doing.

Not that the team itself should be feeling in any way disheartened. Their win on Friday represented only a second in the league in 15 previous attempts (W2 D5 L8) and was earned via an unlikely source. Young full-back Jamal Lewis scoring the first Premier League goal of his fledging career, which also happened to be the team’s first from open play (so excluding those scored from set-plays) since Todd Cantwell opened the scoring against Crystal Palace in a 1-1 draw on New Year’s Day.

Can Daniel Farke’s men translate Friday’s battling performance into Wednesday’s FA Cup clash at Tottenham? A lot may depend on the strength of the Norwich starting XI. In their previous round triumphs away to Preston (4-2) and Burnley (2-1), Farke did make changes although nothing too extreme. Moreover, The Canaries pushed Tottenham close in both league meetings this season, earning a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road and only going down 2-1 in North London.

The new manager bounce had been in full effect at Tottenham, with only Liverpool and Man City registering more points in the Premier League since Jose Mourinho was installed in North London. Sunday’s loss to Wolves marked a third defeat on the spin, however, albeit all three were against far superior opposition than a Norwich side still rooted to the bottom of England’s top division.


Tottenham Hotspur Vs Norwich City – Key Facts

  • Tottenham required a replay to negotiate earlier round ties with Middlesbrough and Southampton.
  • Norwich are targeting a third successive away win this tournament, having beaten Preston (2-4) and Burnley (1-2) away from home in the earlier rounds.
  • Both league meetings this season produced Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score, with Tottenham 2-1 winners at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in January.


Some of the self-belief and confidence that had been missing for too long have seeped back into recent Norwich performances. Yet Friday’s victory over Leicester, as impressive as it was, was still something of a rarity. Daniel Farke’s men have fared well in this competition so far, though, beating Preston and Burnley away from home, and so could pose one or two problems.

This will be the third meeting of the season for the two teams, with goals featuring prominently in the previous two. Both Teams To Score/Over 2.5 Goals landed in both encounters and that would appear to have strong claims once again.
