Norwich failed to build on their win over Bournemouth as they lost 2-1 to a struggling Spurs side

The Canaries defended resolutely for the majority of the game and the home side only had a few clear chances – two of which they scored. The breakthrough came just before the break through Alli. Cantwell lost the ball in midfield and after Aurier put in a perfect cross, Alli had the simplest of tasks to slide the ball into the net.

Norwich equalised mid way through the second period thanks to a cool penalty from Pukki. Sessegnon clumsily took down Aarons in the area and after a long VAR check, the spot-kick was given. The Fin has obviously been doing penalty practice because his he’s now scored his last three after missing his only spot-kick last season.

Less than ten minutes later, Spurs retook the lead thanks to a Son header. After the Canaries missed a chance up the other end, Tottenham broke. Alli attempted a cross but it deflected wickedly off Zimmermann’s foot and right onto the head of Son who had an open goal.

It was beginning to look like a repeat of the Carrow Road clash but Spurs managed to hold on for the win.
