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.

Norwich have only won three games so far this season - two of those victories came in the Capital One Cup and all have been home wins.

Grant Holt is the only Norwich player to have scored more than one goal this term having bagged three goals this season. Seven players are stuck on one goal.

Tottenham haven't advanced past the third round in the last two campaigns. However, they made it to the quarter-finals the four times prior to that.

Draw: 3.7



Tottenham met Norwich in the League Cup final of 1973; Spurs' Ralph Coates scored the only goal of the game to take the Cup back to London.
