Live: Norwich 1 Tottenham 1

93
That's it. Norwich City 1 Tottenham Hotspur 1. Norwich defended superbly but could do little about Bale's wonder strike late in the second half.

92
Spurs can't quite get hold of the ball. They have tried everything this half.

90
Assou-Ekotto has a go this time and Spurs win a late corner. 3 minutes of injury time.

89
Last minute of the 90. Can Norwich hang on?

88
Sigurdsson with a great strike and Bunn palms wide. Sper attempt from 20 yards.

86
Lennon off for Sigurdsson

85
Another Spurs corner. This time charged down and it goes for a throw in.

84
Holtby swings the ball in and when it drops to Defoe Turner blocks.

83
Confusion in the Spurs defence and Assou-Ekotto clears before Snodgrass can nip in.

81
Another Spurs chance. Assou-Ekotto from the left and Defoe flicks it over. He should have done better.

79
Bale gets away for once from halfway and storms into the box and fires an unstoppable shot past Bunn. Outstanding.

78
Debut yellow for Holtby. Looked harsh.

77
Lennon digs a cross out but Bunn takes it off Bale's head at the second attempt.

76
Dembele, who has been very quiet, tries from 20 yards but it's again charged down. Great defending.

74
Snodgrass's corner cleared by Parker and Spurs try to break.

73
The longer it goes on the more Norwich will think they can pinch another goal. Corner for the home side.

72
Holtby slips Lennon in but Lennon can't find a Spurs player in the box.

70
Dempsey off and Holtby comes on for his debut.

69
Walker with another Spurs corner. Holtby waiting to come on.

68
Turner again just in time to head Walker's teasing cross away.

67
Spurs doing well till the Norwich penalty area but they can't quite find that killer ball. This time Dembele gives it away.

65
Pilkington in the meantime cuts inside onto his right foot and it's a yard wide of Lloris's post.

65
AVB looks worried. Can his side turn this around?

63
Long ball by Martin and Hoolahan was one on one with the last defender but he can't quite control the ball in time.

62
Defoe picks the ball up deep but fires his shot into the stand.

60
Spurs still having plenty of the ball but haven't created a genuine goal scoring chance as yet in the second half.

58
Holt with a late challenge on Walker.

58
Norwich enjoying a rare spell in the Spurs half but it doesn't last long.

56
Bale down the right this time but his ball into the box headed away by Turner.....just. Defoe wasn't far away. All Spurs now.

55
Dempsey goes down on the edge of the box but the referee not having any of it.

54
Pilkington then hits one from the edge of the box. Big penalty appeals but the referee waves away the protests. Don't think it hit an arm.

54
Holtby warming up for Spurs. Could he be on soon?

52
Spurs keeping the ball better. Norwich allowing them to get forward.

49
Bale then shoots from distance. Better from Spurs.

49
Bale plays it to Defoe but a great challenge by Turner in the area.

48
Spurs at least attempting to get the ball down and play this half.

48
Johnson wastes a great chance deciding to shoot rather than play Holt through.

47
Norwich with a real chance early in the second half. Martin fires just wide.

46
We are up and running again....

47
Norwich hold the lead at the break and it's no more than they deserve. One of Snodgrass's deliveries would eventually pay off and Hoolahan it was who finished a fine move.

46
Spurs just haven't got started. Norwich showing far more urgency.

45
2 minutes will be added on.

44
Parker this time down after a foul by Tettey.

42
Spurs best chance. Bassong can't control the ball and after a quick exchange with Lennon, Defoe's shot is very well saved by Mark Bunn.

Norwich well on top. Why not have a look at Sky Bets next scorer odds. Grant Holt is down at 8/1

38
Bale is down for Spurs. Looks like it could be a dead leg. He should be able to run it off.

37
At the other end Martin is free but he can't find a yellow shirt in the box. Great break.

36
Garrido fouls Bale and Bale it is who takes the free kick. Plenty of Norwich bodies in the way and they clear.

34
Hoolahan's 50th career goal. Spurs rattled.

Superb work by Snodgrass (again) and Holt. Easy for Hoolahan.

33
Snodgrass with the cross which Lloris couldn't handle. Holt nods down for Pilkington who sweeps it into Hoolahan's path and he makes no mistake.

30
Snodgrass's delivery this first 30 minutes has been outstanding.

29
Snodgrass with the ball in Holt reacts first and it's a corner which again Spurs somehow manage to clear.

28
Spurs will be looking for more from Lennon and Bale.

27
Norwich really looking determined all over the pitch. Assou-Ekotto the latest Spurs player to give the ball away.

25
Spurs without options in midfield. Norwich have really done well to stop the supply.

23
Holt getting the better of Vertonghen and goes down but no penalty. Norwich getting closer.

22
Another free kick by Garrido which Spurs eventually clear. Home side on top.

21
Good start from Norwich and in particular Snodgrass.

20
Ball over the top from Snodgrass again and Holt elects to shoot from distance but it sails way over the bar.

19
Parker tidying up for Spurs as Norwich attempt to push forward again.

18
Interesting to see how Spurs are playing. Trying to get it forward as quickly as possible. Bale nearly sneaked through a moment ago but Bassong intervened.

16
Another long Spurs ball but Dawson's header is easy for Bunn.

15
Snodgrass this time down the left finds space but Martin can't quite get his attempt on target.

14
Spurs happy to play it long looking for Dempsey in the hope he can flick it on to Defoe. No joy thus far though.

14
Snodgrass, for once, delivers high and long. No danger.

11
Tettey does well and wins Norwich a corner. Snodgrass delivers but Bale clears this time at the other end.

9
Another chance for Snodgrass to deliver in really windy conditions. Lloris comes and fists back into the air but it hits a Norwich player and goes out for a goal kick.

8
First Spurs corner met by Bale but it goes behind for a goal kick.

7
Lennon fouled by Garrido but Walker's free kick is easily headed away.

6
Holt with a long ball into the box but Lloris makes it look easy.

5
Defoe and Lennon link up but it finds it's way through to Bunn.

4
Spurs struggling at the moment to get out of their half. Snodgrass shoots but it's cleared.

2
Norwich free kick. Snodgrass from the right. Headed out by Bale but flashed wide by Hoolahan.

2
Defoe charges down Bunn's clearance and receives a hug from Bale. Quite a start.

1
Spurs get us up and running.

About to kick off. Both teams in a pre-match huddle.

Jack on Twitter: Hoping for a Norwich win tonight. Got a good record v spurs of late. Come on you yellows.

The teams are in the tunnel an waiting to come out.

You can get in touch as well. Send me a Tweet regarding tonight's game @OfficialTMCD1

Alex Machin has been in touch via Twitter: "3-1 spurs! Defoe to score first! Holtby to score on debut"

Interesting to see Lewis Holtby warming up in goal. Not sure how Spurs fans will fell about that! Holtby starts on the bench this evening. Will he get on?

Norwich have not won in their last six league fixtures. Spurs were on the end of an FA Cup giant-killing, losing to Championship side Leeds on Sunday.

So who do you fancy this evening? Sky Bet have Norwich down to win at 7/2, the draw 11/4, and an away win for Spurs at 8/11. Take a look at other match odds.

You can get involved as well. Send me a Tweet @OfficialTMCD1 and I will try to get as many on as possible.

Daniel has been in touch already: "Can see a nice 2-0 win for Tottenham, too much speed and attacking prowess for Norwich and great to see Holtby on bench"

Tottenham subs: Friedel, Naughton, Gallas, Caulker, Holtby, Livermore, Sigurdsson.

Norwich subs: Camp, Whittaker, Howson, Jackson, Fox, E.Bennett, R.Bennett.

Tottenham Hotspur starting XI: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Dembele, Parker, Lennon, Bale, Dempsey, Defoe.

More Players In The Wrong Bloody Shirt

Plus Cristiano Ronaldo, who looks 'heart-breakingly well-suited to a Real Madrid shirt' according to one United fan. Plus, words from the good doctor and plenty more...

Players Plainly Wearing The Wrong Strip...

There are some players who just look plain daft in whatever shirt they're wearing. Like Cesc and Robin. It's a cracking mailbox with a load of different themes...
