Norwich are in woeful form...
<div><h2>Norwich vs Tottenham</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, December 28, at Carrow Road</strong></a></p><p>Norwich will bid to arrest a terrible run of form when they host Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham side at Carrow Road on Saturday. The Canaries have taken just one point from their last five games and defeat to Aston Villa on Boxing Day left them rock bottom of the table. Spurs have won five of their seven Premier League games since Mourinho took the reins, with the only defeats coming against Man Utd and Chelsea. They have bulldozed the smaller clubs in recent weeks and they should be able to clinch victory in this match.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Squad rotation is vital at this time of year, but Norwich boss Daniel Farke does not have too many options. Ben Godfrey, Timm Klose and Josip Drmic are out injured, meaning centre-backs Grant Hanley and Christoph Zimmerman and forward Teemu Pukki will have no respite. Farke is also reliant on Emiliano Buendia and Todd Cantwell for inspiration in attack, so they are likely to be thrust straight back into battle after just two days of rest.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris remains injured and Paolo Gazzaniga is deputising between the sticks. Mourinho has favoured a back-three in recent games, with Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen at the back and Serge Aurier and Ryan Sessegnon deployed as wing-backs. Son Heung-Min is suspended, but Mourinho decided to keep contract rebel Christian Eriksen on the bench in a 2-1 win against Brighton on Boxing Day, with Lucas Moura and Dele Alli either side of Harry Kane up top. Eric Dier, Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso are options for the manager if he decides to shuffle his pack for this game.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Norwich have now lost 13 out of 19 Premier League games this season, which is the worst record in the division. They look nailed on for relegation, so this is the sort of game that Spurs really need to win. Mourinho’s men are now up to fifth in the table, just three points behind Chelsea, and they are attacking with confidence right now, so they should be able to overwhelm the Canaries in this game.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Tottenham to win and over 1.5 goals at 1.91 (10/11) with Coral</a></strong></p></div>
