According to a report on the Mirror, Norwich are set to meet with Tottenham on August 10 away at Spurs, although these fixtures have not yet been verified.
Premier League fixtures were due to be released on Thursday later this week, however, they have supposedly been leaked online a day early – revealing a full programme of games.
Newly promoted Norwich may have been hoping for an easier game as they make their debut back in the Premier League, however, they have been given an away game against Spurs who finished fourth in the Premier League last season.
Norwich had an outstanding season in the 2018/19 campaign, they finished fives points ahead of second place Sheffield United, and a big 11 points ahead of promotion hopefuls Leeds, winning the Championship with 94 points.
On the other hand, Spurs ended their campaign on a low. They faced Liverpool in the Champions League final and ended up losing 2-0.
It might take a lot for Mauricio Pochettino to get his Spurs side back to full confidence and so perhaps meeting with them on the first game of the season will work in Norwich’s favour.
Why could Norwich make an impact in the Premier League?
Style of football
Daniel Farke’s style of football was admired last season in the Championship and it will have an impact in the Premier League too.
A lot of the Norwich side are young and have a lot of potential, like Max Aarons who played a key role in their success last time around.
Teemu Pukki had an immense season in the 2018/19 campaign, he was the top goal scorer in the Championship and will be hoping to make the same impact in the Premier League.
Bounce back ability
Even if Norwich lose, they can return and fight back to a win. They had a slow start in the Championship but were able to bounce back and win the title in the end – proving that they won’t let a loss stop them next season.
