This evenings result was absolutely phenomenal, the team put in and outstanding
performance in every aspect of the game and the great bonus of Arsenal drawing 0-0 to Southampton adds to the incredible delight, we have now moved to 3rd position in the league table! In addition we have now won five on the trot.
The deadlock was broken in less than two minutes as Christian Eriksen’s effort was palmed away by Declan Rudd right in to path of Dele Alli and the nimble footed teenager perfectly despatched his effort, he pounced and made no mistake as he fired us into an early lead on a chilly winters night at Carrow road. Our high intensity didn’t drop in the aftermath of our early lead and our ultimate power on the field provided Norwich with a whole host of defensive problems. Eighteen minutes in and another great chance presented itself for Spurs, Kane surged towards the byline and cleverly pulled the ball back to Son who flicked a fine effort against the outside of the post. Over ten minutes had gone since that glorious opportunity to double our lead had taken place, but yet another great opportunity presented itself a Dele Alli shot thwarted by Rudd resulted with Kane being fouled by former Spurs man Bassong on the follow up, and the referee awarded the penalty. Kane stepped up and rolled the ball into the back of the net, as cool as you like, 2-0 Spurs.
Our domination and dictation of play was overwhelming the faltering canaries and two minutes after the goal Kane powered a brilliant effort against the post, a millimetre away from making it three for the lillywhites. And before the first half came to a close, our creativity provided us with a couple of fabulous chances most notably of which came to Dele Alli after a precise cross from Danny Rose found him after his run was executed with perfection, Alli’s header went a whisker wide of the post, 2-0 to Spurs at the interval. The second half had barely started when Norwich attacked us looking for a way back in to the match, Matt Jarvis crossed as Naismith headed a fraction wide of the goal. Two minutes after the Scotsman’s effort Norwich had the ball in the back of the net Bassong had headed the ball in to the goal but it was ruled offside. The long period that followed was a sequence of fine passing from Spurs, the excellent holding of possession was exhibited by the team, as we established ourselves expertly on the stage with the hope of tiring the out of form Norwich. Our defensive partnership of Alderweireld and Wimmer was of the highest quality with both performing outstandingly in the heart of our defence. Our best player of the match Harry Kane unleashed a powerful effort against the post on 82 minutes with his shot rebounding away from danger. However, the England international got a deserved second and wrapped up a three nil win for us in the 90th minute. Some poor defending gifted Kane with a one on one opportunity with Rudd and Kane expertly tucked the ball in to the back of the net, the final score Spurs 3 Norwich 0.
The genius Mauricio Pochettino masterminds another exceptional win making it five wins on the bounce and our exceptional tenacity and our rapidly improving philosophy has every Tottenham fan foaming at the mouth.Something extraordinary is in the making at this football club, has a modern day Bill Nicholson arrived? Dare I guess But Pochettino has us all dreaming of those glory,glory days. COYS
