Spurs aim for winning run during festive season - Vertonghen

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle

You'd worry about their depth if Harry Kane gets injured.

But there is still much work to be done if City are to survive in the Premier League and a famous win against a fallen giant should not disguise the fact that surgery is required to their squad in January.

Further success in front of goal will require Kane to find a way past Heurelho Gomes, who has kept eight clean sheets as Watford have adapted well to life in the top flight.

SPURS (4-2-3-1): Lloris 7; Walker 6, Alderweireld 8, Vertonghen 7, Davies 6; Dier 6, Dembele 6 (Chadli 85); Eriksen 6 (Carroll 72, 7), Alli 8 (Son 78), Lamela 7; Kane 9. Norwich, meanwhile, are wait on Andre Wisdom and Matt Jarvis. John Ruddy will continue to be on goal after his performance against united. Spurs are fourth and could be higher if they had not conceded so many points from winning positions in previous games. Both Martin Olsson and Robbie Brady can do that job down the left side.

Since Norwich bounced straight back up following their relegation in 2013-14, it's only been just under two years since these two sides last met. The Dutchman has explained in the past that since players can seldom hear instructions hollered from beyond the pitch, such antics are futile expressions of vanity, acts of coaches keen to show that they have an influence rather than to actually have one.

Summer signing Son Heung-min has already played on the right, in the number ten role and as a striker in his short time at the club. Having scored in the previous game against united, Jerome will look to catch up to Nathan Redmond who is now the club's top scorer this season. "The next one against Aston Villa, we know the importance of it. If we beat Villa, we will be at 20 points after halfway, and everyone talks about reaching the 40-point mark".

Kane scored twice in Spurs' victory over Norwich on Saturday to take his personal tally to 11 Premier League goals this season and 27 in 2015, which broke Teddy Sheringham's club record for a calendar year.

Norwich have the upper hand with 2 wins and 2 draws in the last 5 games against Spurs. Although Norwich have have lost just once in their last five Premier League meetings with Spurs (W2 D2 L1), the Canaries have never won a top-flight fixture on Boxing Day in five attempts.

The 22-year-old has recently broken into Marc Wilmots' squad, scoring two goals in as many games for Belgium, and does not want anything to ruin his chances of making the Euro 2016 squad.
