Having lost all three last matches, Tottenham will now try to play back at least in the Cup of England. True, even here the team Jose Mourinho won with great difficulty. To the 1/8 final Spurs reached with two replays, defeating first Middlesbrough (1:1, 2:1), and then Southampton (1:1, 3:2).
As for the last three official meetings, Mourinho’s players lost to Leipzig in the Champions League (0-1), while in the APL they lost to Chelsea (1-2) and Wolverhampton (2-3). That’s why the spurs went down to seventh place.
However, the London club’s failure can be explained by the critical situation in the attack. Not only Harry Kane is injured, but also Son Heung-min is injured. Also Moussa Sissoko will be absent until April 25. On the other hand, Juan Voit and Ryan Sessegnon are close to returning to the squad. The participation of main goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is in question.
It should be noted that last season Tottenham flew out in the fourth round of the English Cup, but in 2018 the spurs reached the semi-finals.
Daniel Farquet’s team in the English Cup had no problem dealing with Preston (4:2) and Burnley (2:1). Both teams won the away win. Prior to that, for six years, Canaries even one round of passing with great difficulty.
In the championship Farke’s wards achieved a sensation in the last round, beating Lester (1:0) at home. This is the second victory of the Canaries in the last five official matches. The first triumph came in an away match with Burnley in the English Cup (2-1). Then Norwich lost to Liverpool (0:1), Wolverhampton (0:3) and played a draw with Newcastle (0:0).
With representatives of the top six Norwich this season played three away matches. In them, the Canaries lost to Liverpool (1:4), Manchester United (0:4) and Tottenham (1:2).
