Tottenham v Norwich: match preview

The fortunes of Norwich and Tottenham have improved since replacing underachieving managers last month. Dean Smith has guided Norwich to five points from three games – riches compared to five from 11 matches under Daniel Farke – while Tottenham have collected seven from a possible nine since Antonio Conte took over from Nuno Espírito Santo. Both sides have yet to convince though, meaning the outcome is hard to call. It might come down to who has the most in-form striker – with Teemu Pukki having scored three in his last four while Harry Kane has just the one league goal all season. Stephen Hollis
