Norwich City vs Tottenham Prediction

Tottenham Almost There in Bid to Return to Europe’s Top Table

Tottenham could hardly have asked for a more favorable scenario on the final day of the Premier League season.

Arsenal’s back-to-back defeats by Spurs and Newcastle United mean that Antonio Conte’s men only need to draw their last match in order to qualify for next season’s edition of Champions League. The fixture computer has handed them perhaps the easiest assignment in the division: a meeting with last-placed, relegated Norwich City.

Conte will have worked hard in recent days to ensure complacency does not creep into the Spurs camp. They are not quite over the line yet. At the same time, it would only be natural if the players were feeling optimistic about their chances of a top-four finish. Tottenham have found form at just the right time. They are ending the campaign strongly and are now just one draw (or win) away from achieving their primary objective.

Conte got off to a good start in north London. Spurs went unbeaten in his first nine league games at the helm, rising from ninth in the standings to sixth. But Tottenham could not keep that positive run going. They then lost three games on the bounce, and four in five across January and February. A 1-0 defeat by Burnley towards the end of the latter month left Tottenham seven points adrift of the top four, albeit with games in hand. Conte publicly cast doubt on whether he would be at the club next season.

Since then, though, Spurs have become more consistent. Only Liverpool have collected more points since the start of March. Conte’s charges have lost just two of their last 12 outings in the league. They have turned up in big games, holding Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield and beating arch-rivals Arsenal 3-0 in a crunch clash last week. Spurs are nearly there.

Norwich Once Again Unable to Compete in the Premier League

This season has been a familiar tale for Norwich. No team in Premier League history has been relegated more often than the Canaries, who have finished in the bottom three on six separate occasions.

The annoyance for Norwich fans is that, just like on their last visit to the top flight in 2019/20, their team has never really looked like staying up this season.

Supporters have accused key figures at the club, most notably the sporting director Stuart Webber, of failing to learn from the mistakes that were made last time. Recruitment has been a mixed bag at best. Norwich do not have a huge amount of money to spend, but other teams – including Brentford this season – have shown that is not necessarily a prerequisite for success.

Norwich have amassed the fewest points, scored the fewest goals, conceded the most goals and won the fewest number of games this season. Relegation, in other words, is deserved. Norwich will want to try and end the campaign on a rare positive note, but a run of one win in their last 15 matches suggests that is unlikely, particularly against opponents of Tottenham’s quality.

Tottenham Should Be in Store for a Comfortable Final Day

Spurs labored a little in their 1-0 defeat of Burnley last time out. The only goal of the game came from the penalty spot after a controversial handball decision made by the video assistant referee. Burnley defended with organization, discipline and diligence. On another day they could have avoided defeat.

That may give Arsenal a glimmer of hope ahead of Sunday. The problem is that Norwich are not as good as Burnley. The two teams’ respective defensive records – Burnley have conceded 50 goals, Norwich have let in 79 – demonstrates that the Canaries will struggle to frustrate Tottenham in the manner that the Clarets did last time out.

Spurs only need to draw to secure fourth place, but there is no question of them not going for the win. Conte will likely instruct his players to start quickly and try to put the issue to bed by half-time.

At the other end of the field, Norwich will have to try and find a way past a backline which has kept clean sheets in back-to-back matches. Dean Smith’s side, for their part, have scored only one goal in their last five games. With that in mind, back Tottenham to secure a top-four finish by beating Norwich to nil.
