Spurs under 18’s versus Norwich City: (match preview)

Our under 18’s return to Premier League South action when they take on Norwich City in county Norfolk this Saturday (the game starts at 11:30am). The match which takes place at Norwich’s Lotus training centre is Spurs’ last league game until after the international break. Matt Taylor’s side sit in seventh place in the league after six games, and having gone two games without a win they will be looking to return to winning ways against a Norwich side who have conceded 16 goals from just six games this season. Steve Weaver’s Norwich side have lost three league games in a row so they will also be looking to record a positive result on Saturday. Spurs will most likely be without 16 year old central midfielder Alfie Devine, who played the whole of Spurs’ under 23’s (his competitive debut for them) league game against Derby County earlier today, and he also scored our only goal of the game as we lost 2-1. Our under 18’s came very close to doing the double over Norwich in the league last season but for a 93rd minute Zach Dronfield equaliser for Norwich in our last visit to Norfolk. Tomorrow both teams will be looking to get points on the board in what should be another very interesting game, though sadly I will be unable to see it due to the current situation, I would however, like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lo Tutala (c), Cesay, Muir, Paskošti, Lusala, Matthew Craig, John, Whittaker, Haysman, Santiago, Scarlett. 

Subs from: Solberg, Hackett, Torraj, Mathurin, Mundle

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: 1-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 4-2.

My one to watch: Norwich’s inform 18 year old forward Thomas Dickson-Peters, who has already scored seven under 18 league goals from four games so far this season.
