TOTTENHAM v NORWICH.

VERDICT Tottenham struggled to find their rhythm at Sunderland but they play a much higher tempo at home and will be anxious to get at Norwich from the off. Aaron Lennon was a sub on Saturday but should start today and his explosive pace could be the key to a convincing home win. Norwich will have a go at any team in the league but their refreshing approach could leave them exposed. Tottenham -1.5 on Asian handicap 2pts 1.94 Ladbrokes TEAM NEWS Gareth Bale is doubtful after picking up a knock at Sunderland but Aaron Lennon could start and Ledley King (knee) is back. Anthony Pilkington, Simeon Jackson, Andrew Crofts and Zak Whitbread could start as Paul Lambert shuffles his pack but Kyle Naughton, who is on loan from Spurs, is ineligible for today's game.
