Norwich City vs. Tottenham Hotspur: 6 Things We Learned

Tottenham Hotspur tripped up in the hunt for Champions League football, suffering a 1-0 loss away at Norwich CIty.

Relegation-battling Norwich City secured an important three points for their under-pressure manager Chris Hughton on Sunday with a 1-0 win over Champions League-chasing Tottenham Hotspur.

Norwich just about had the better of a largely incident-free first half—lively where Tottenham were lacklustre.

Whatever Tim Sherwood said to his Spurs side at halftime did not work. Within three minutes of the game's resumption they were a goal down.

Nabil Bentaleb was caught in possession by Ricky van Wolfswinkel. The Canaries pounced on a back-pedalling Spurs defence, moving the way out right to find Robert Snodgrass sneaking in behind a clueless Danny Rose.

Snodgrass drifted into the open space, composed himself and curled the ball past Hugo Lloris into the bottom corner.

The introduction of Roberto Soldado briefly lifted Spurs but Norwich continued to pressure and might have added to their lead with several late chances.

The win lifts the Canaries four points clear of the drop zone. Spurs, meanwhile, are now six adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool.

Read on for a few things learned from this Premier League clash.
