Norwich manager Chris Hughton goes up against former Spurs pal Steffen Freund tonight as the Canaries host Tottenham at Carrow Road. Freund, who lifted the League Cup as a player with Spurs, is now assistant to Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane and will be keen to get one over his former coach.
In a run stretching seven games, Tottenham have not lost at Carrow Road since 1991, whilst Norwich have won both of their Capital One Cup games at home this season against Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers.
