CONFIRMED: Norwich City & Tottenham Hotspur line-ups

Here is how Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur will line-up for this afternoon’s match at Carrow Road.

Norwich City starting XI: Ruddy; Martin, Yobo, Bassong, Olsson; Tettey, Johnson; Snodgrass, Fer, Redmond; van Wolfswinkel.

Subs: Bunn, Whittaker, Howson, Hooper, Pilkington, Hoolahan, Elmander

Tottenham Hotspur starting XI: Lloris; Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Rose; Capoue, Bentaleb, Paulinho; Lennon, Adebayor, Dembele.

Subs: Friedel, Fryers, Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane, Soldado.

Spurs will be looking to continue their late push for a Champions League place with a win over struggling Norwich City today.

The hosts have gone with one up front as Ricky van Wolfswinkel will read the line, despite the Dutchman hitting just one goal this season. As a result, top scorer Gary Hooper will be on the bench, but manager Chris Hughton will be hoping for telling contributions from wingers Robert Snodgrass and Nathan Redmond. Having scored just 19 goals this season, Norwich's goalshy displays could be their downfall in their battle against relegation, and desperately need a win today.

Meanwhile, Tim Sherwood has also gone with a lone striker, as Emmanuel Adebayor will be looking to continue his rich vein of goalscoring form against the Canaries. However, Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Andros Townsend have to be content with a place on the bench.

Youngster Nabil Bentaleb came in for some criticism after Spurs' 1-0 defeat to Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, but keeps his place in the side and will work in midfield alongside Etienne Capoue and Paulinho.
