Premier League: Tottenham v Norwich match preview
A look ahead to this afternoon’s kick-off at White Hart Lane
Friday 13 September 2013
Visitors Norwich have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the White Hart Lane clash as the Canaries look to push on following their first win of the season against Southampton before the international break.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas may have banished striker Emmanuel Adebayor to the reserves but he is not short of options up front after a summer spending spree. Erik Lamela could be given a full-debut as could new-arrival Christian Eriksen. However, defender Vlad Chiriches will have to wait for his Tottenham bow as he is still without a work permit.
