North London side Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a third straight league win ahead of their trip to face bottom team Norwich City at Carrow Road this weekend. Spurs have Champions League football on the line when they take on the Canaries on the final day of this season’s Premier League.
Tottenham Hotspur have won their last two league games since the impressive 1-1 draw at the home of title chasers Liverpool. After a goalless affair in the first half, in-form South Korean national team star Son Heung-Min gave Tottenham Hotspur the lead off the assist from ex-England junior international RyanSessegnon before Colombian star Luis Diaz scored the equaliserfor Liverpool with a deflected strike. Since the draw with the Reds, Spurs have beaten Arsenal and Burnley on the Premier League scene. They can end the season with three straight wins if they beat Norwich City away from home.
Spurs returned to winning ways in emphatic style thanks to the 3-0 home win over 10-man Arsenal. The Gunners were not helped by the sending off of Rob Holding in the first half after he was adjudged to have fouled Son Heung-Min twice in the space of six minutes. Holding was booked twice for the two foul incidents thereby ending the game earlier than expected. Harry Kane had given Tottenham Hotspur the lead from the penalty spot by the time Holding was sent off before he doubled the lead shortly after the red card to the aforementioned Arsenal player.
Tottenham Hotspur made it two league wins on the bounce with the home victory over Spurs after Kane scored the only goal of the match from the penalty spot. He was successful from 12 yards late in the first half after a controversial penalty was awarded to Tottenham Hotspur for a handball by Burnley striker Ashley Barnes.
