While their loss to NS Mura in the Europa Conference League, albeit while fielding a second-string XI, would suggest it’s important not to get too carried away, Spurs have taken seven points from nine under Antonio Conte’s stewardship.
Seemingly improving the more time they spend on the training ground with Conte, today’s visit of Norwich offers another favourable fixture. Dean Smith’s arrival might have yielded initial success but the manner of their performance against a ten-man Newcastle last time out was concerning.
Indeed, while the frantic festive schedule is generally treacherous territory, Spurs could do a lot worse than following up a win over Brentford with a game against a Norwich side to have conceded the second-highest number of goals thus far.
