It’s the final game of the season and what a game it is for Tottenham and their Champions League ambitions, as they travel to face Norwich on Sunday.

Antonio Conte’s side need just a point to secure top four, which was aided by their 1-0 win against Burnley last time out while Norwich drew with Wolves.

Norwich

The yo-yo approach continues as Norwich prepare for life in the Championship yet again, with their relegation confirmed despite a solid 1-1 draw against Wolves.

It was Teemu Pukki’s 11th goal of the season which put the visitors ahead, though a Rayan Ait-Nouri equaliser meant both sides had to settle for a point each.

If there’s any hope for Tottenham, it is that Norwich have conceded 10 goals and scored none in reply on their previous final-day fixtures.

Tottenham

Champions League qualification was looking bleak for Spurs two weeks ago yet they now find themselves in the driving seat for a European road trip.

It wasn’t without testing moments however, as only a Harry Kane penalty could separate his side from relegation-fighting Burnley. The victory now puts Conte’s side in fourth place, two points ahead of their North London challengers Arsenal in fifth.

Tottenham’s superior goal differences means just a point will secure their position, and after taking 11 points from their last 15 while conceding just once – to Liverpool – the Spurs fans should have confidence going into this one.

Team news

Mathias Normann is fit to play for Norwich, though Billy Gilmour and Ben Gibson will face late fitness tests.

As for Spurs, they will be without Japhet Tanganga, Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty and Oliver Skipp until next season.

Cristian Romero may have a chance at featuring after Conte did not rule out the Argentine defender for the match.
