The destination of the final Champions League spot in the Premier League is firmly in the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs will be aware that a victory on Sunday against Norwich City will be enough to see them snatch fourth-place for North London rivals Arsenal.
Premier League Preview
Antonio Conte’s aim when arriving at Spurs earlier in the season would have been to end the campaign in a Champions League position. Tottenham look set to achieve that goal on the final day of the season, as victory over relegated Norwich City will seal their spot in the elite European competition next term.
Spurs have been in excellent form over recent weeks, as they have won three of their last four games. The race for fourth certainly swung in Tottenham’s favour last weekend, as they hammered Arsenal 3-0 in the North London derby.
They then piled the pressure on their local rivals with a 1-0 success against Burnley in their final home game of the season on Sunday. Arsenal soon cracked under the pressure, as they were easily beaten 2-0 by Newcastle United on Monday night.
Norwich will be playing for nothing more than pride on the final day of the season, as they prepare for a season back in the Championship under Dean Smith. The Canaries could yet move off the bottom of the league standings on the final day of the season, but they will need a win against Spurs to achieve that.
Despite enduring a poor season this term, the Canaries will go into the start of the Championship season as one of the favourites to gain promotion. They have a squad perfectly tailored to the division, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them immediately return under Smith in 12 months time.
Norwich City vs Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head
Tottenham have picked up two straight wins against Norwich coming into this fixture. However, the previous meeting between the sides at Carrow Road ended in a 2-2 draw. In fact, Spurs have picked up just one win from their four visits to Norwich.
Norwich City vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
The pressure will be on Spurs this weekend, as they will need victory to seal fourth in the Premier League. It looks hard to bet against Tottenham, as this looks to be the ideal final game of the season to see them pick up maximum points.
