Norwich City sit in seventeeth just above the relegation zone, its such a tight league this year though that one win will bring Norwich up to fourteenth level on points with the two above them. Chris Hughton knows that his team must continue their strong home form if they are to avoid relegation, seventeen of Norwich's 24 points have come at home and they will be looking to add to that total tomorrow. Gary Hooper and Ricky van Wolfswinkel havent quite worked out in the way that Norwich's team or fans would have hoped. Hooper has found the net a few times recently but a return of six goals betweem the two of them in the league is just not good enough. This will have to improve if Norwich are going to stay up.
Tottenham come into this game having played in the Europa league on Thursday night, luckily Tim Sherwood has a big squad and managed to give alot of his second string a game on Thursday but at the moment Tottenham have a mini injury crisis with Lloris, Adebayor, Lennon, Sandro, Lamela, Chirches and Kaboul all carrying knocks or injuries. It will be interesting to see if Roberto Soldado can get his season kickstarted and score a few goals. The Spanish striker has been poor to date this season netting only five goals this season but most of them from the penalty stop, he has been over shadowed by the re emergence of adebayor who has netted eight in eleven.
This game has all the hall marks of a tense encounter, Norwich City will be desperate for points and I think they will keep this one tight. I'm liking the look of the unders here as its been a strong play on alot of Norwich's home games in fact its come in in seven of the last nine home games for the Canaries. While Spurs look the more capable going forward if Adebayor misses the game I think the unders should be a really solid play. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
