TOT Vs NOR Dream11, Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tottenham strive to arrest their regressing slump in the points tally.
From challenging for the Champions League trophy last season to now being massively out of favour for a spot in the top 4. Tottenham’s decline can be easily augured from the fact that they are winless in their last four encounters in the Premier league, results which have seen them wrenched in an impasse at the moment.
Drawing 0-0 with Watford at the weekend, the club ended up dropping down into 8th position in the Premier League. What has been the biggest cause of concern for the club are not just their results but the manner in which those defeats have come about with drab and lacklustre attacking displays being piled on the misery by equally horrid defensive showings.
It was something Norwich City made the most of when these two sides met in December to pull off a 2-2 draw on the day. And with a 1-0 win against Bournemouth the last time around, they come into today’s encounter with some kind of momentum in their ranks, ones they’ll be looking to use to stun Tottenham today.
Given both these unit’s peril in defence, we could easily be in for a high scoring affair. What sees Tottenham stand tall among their counterparts today is their attacking might, one which should see them rake up all three points from the encounter.

TOT Vs NOR Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Redemption finally came calling for Paolo Gazzaniga in Tottenham’s foregone encounter. He was the only reason is side were able to salvage a draw against Watford as he pulled off a penalty save, one which sees us repose faith in his service for today’s outing as well.
TOT Vs NOR Dream11 Defenders
With us having two sides who have shipped in the 76 balls in the 46 encounters they have played in between them this season, this hardly looks to be an encounter where defensive acumen will take precedence. Either side is bound to let slip in atleast the one goal, a rhetoric which sees us move in only for the requisite three defenders.
We begin with Japhet Tanganga from Tottenham with the player having impressed ever since being accord a chance in his side’s playing 11. Elsewhere, we are moving in with the partnership of Christoph Zimmerman and Maximillian Aarons from the visiting unit, two player capable of moving in tandem up the park and providing a shot in the arm to their side’s attacking soirees.
TOT Vs NOR Dream11 Midfielders
With the 6 goals and the 2 assists this season, we begin this slot of our Dream 11 side with the pick of Todd Cantwell from Norwich City. If his side are to salvage anything from the contest, they’ll be massively relying on him to pull off a torching attacking display, something he’s shown he’s more than capable of.
He’s paired up with Emiliano Buendia, a player who was pivotal for the side when they drew 2-2 with Tottenham the last time around with an assist. Alexander Tettey comes in to complete the trio of selection from the unit whilst from Tottenham we’ll be indulging in Erik Lamela.
The player has been languid ever since recovering from injury but he’s up against a crumbling defence, just the ideal side to offer him to chance to regain much lost confidence.
TOT Vs NOR Dream11 Strikers
Harry Kane’s injury has been an atrocious one for the hosts. The club have never fared t do without their striker and in a period of peril, his absence has been ever more telling on the side.
His injury has seen Lucas Moura be asked to persistently stay up the park for his side and try to compensate for Hary Kane’s injury by occupying his position. And he’s managed to rise to the occasion as well with goals and assists at crucial junctures to see us move in for him.
The six goals and nine assists for Heung-Min Son see us get him in as well from the unit while Norwich City’ leading scoring with the 10 goals and 3 assists, Teemu Pukki completes our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Moura is our captain while Son is the vice-captain.
