Norwich City-Tottenham Betting Preview: Canaries to hold strong at Carrow Road once again

Chris Hughton's men frustrated Manchester City in their last Premier League game on home soil - expect them to put in another resolute performance against Spurs
Both managers will be looking to get one over on their former club when Norwich take on Tottenham on Sunday.

Having spent three seasons in the centre of midfield at Carrow Road, Tim Sherwood is available at even odds (2.00) with bet365 to oversee an eighth win in 11 Premier League games on his old stomping ground.

Chris Hughton dedicated over 20 years of service to Sunday’s opponents as a player and coach and is on offer at 11/4 (3.75) to ease the pressure on his relegation-threatened Canaries with just a second victory in 14.

The pair shared a 1-1 draw on this ground in last season's encounter and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them playing out another stalemate in this one.

Spurs ran riot away to an abject Newcastle in their last Premier League fixture but are unlikely to find things so easy against a home team that have proved a tough nut to crack in front of their own fans.

Having lost 7-0 against Manchester City in November's away fixture, the Canaries upset all the odds by holding Manuel Pellegrini's free-scoring outfit to a goalless draw in the return fixture two weeks ago, their second successive 0-0 on home soil.

Hughton's team have now gone three home games without conceding and have let in just two goals in their last five at Carrow Road, meaning they should feel confident of frustrating a visiting team tired from Thursday's Europa League exertions in far off Ukraine.

With this in mind, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem generous on under 2.5 goals being scored for the sixth consecutive match on this ground, as well as the fourth time in five meetings between the sides.

In fact, considering Norwich have seen no more than a single strike in four of their last five home games, it is worth backing them to restrict Tottenham to under 1.5 goals with another resolute display here, at generous 12/5 (3.40) odds.

Under 2.5 goals for a 2pt stake at 4/5 (1.80) with bet365
