Tottenham Hotspur will have the opportunity to potentially overtake arch-rivals Arsenal in the league table as they take on Norwich City on Sunday. The Lilywhites are currently sixth in the league table, trailing fifth-placed Gunners by a point while leading United by the same margin. They have remained unbeaten in the league since the appointment of Antonio Conte and will hope to extend that record against the relegation candidates Norwich this weekend.
Predicted Tottenham Lineup Vs Norwich City
Tottenham Hotspur are missing new signing Cristian Romero, who has been ruled out until 2022 due to a hamstring issue. In his absence, Eric Dier has played a key role in marshalling the Spurs backline that has also shifted to a three-man setup under Conte.
The Englishman will be hoping to continue his good form against Norwich City, as he once again partners Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies in the Tottenham backline. Joe Rodon is another option should Conte opt to shuffle his pack in defence ahead of the must-win encounter against Rennes next week.
There should be no changes in goal, as Hugo Lloris looks to continue in between the sticks. His experience could be critical in helping his team keep tabs on the Norwich frontline and keep them quiet throughout the entirety of the game.
Oliver Skipp has been a revelation under Conte over the past few matches. The young Englishman has visibly improved his game under the Italian. And this time around, he will be up against his former club, having spent last season on loan with the Canaries.
Skipp’s midfield partnership with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be essential in helping Tottenham get over the line. But it will be equally important for the wingbacks in Emerson Royal and Sergio Reguilon to offer width going forward while aiding the central defenders, whenever required.
As for the attacking department, Conte’s experiment with two inverted wingers has worked out well so far, especially at a time when he is missing star player Giovani Lo Celso due to injury.
Hence, we are expecting Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura to continue in the advanced roles, just in behind the main centre forward Harry Kane. It will be interesting to see whether they can continue their merry ways of scoring goals, not only in this game but also in the encounter against Rennes next week.
