Team News

  • Etienne Capoue is out after spraining his ankle badly against Arsenal before the international break. Sandro will make his first league start of the season in Capoue's absence.
  • Andre Villas-Boas will again be without Aaron Lennon who has been ruled out.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor remains on compassionate leave following the death of his brother, while Vlad Chiriches is still awaiting a work permit and is unlikely to be available.
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson has returned from international duty with a dead leg and is a doubt.
  • Ryan Bennett is a doubt after sitting out the Southampton game with a knock, but he is unlikely to trouble the starting lineup anyway.
  • Elliott Bennett remains out through injury, but Gary Hooper has recovered from a calf injury and will be available for his first appearance in a Norwich shirt.
  • Johan Elmander could start a second successive match since signing.

Prediction

  • Spurs might have won 2 of their opening 3 matches and conceded only 1 goal, but they are still yet to score from open play this season, and are still clearly a team in transition after a busy summer.
  • Norwich overcame Southampton last time out for their first league win of the season, and Chris Hughton will be hoping that his many summer signings will start to gel yet further.
  • Tottenham have won none of their last 4 matches against Norwich, including a 1-1 draw on Mousa Dembele's debut early last season. In the away fixture, they had to rely on another Gareth Bale wondergoal to earn a draw, and this new side will need to find rhythm here to break Norwich down.
