Tottenham to face off against PL strugglers in a friendly ahead of restart



Tottenham Hotspur to take on Norwich City in a friendly

According to the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur will take on Norwich City in a friendly match on June 12 .

It will take place just a week ahead of the restart of the Premier League. Tottenham will resume the campaign with a crunch clash against Manchester United. With both clubs chasing a top four finish, the game is likely to be a feisty affair.

The players will be taking part in a competitive game after three months. Hence, it is necessary to ensure that we are back to full match fitness as soon as possible.

Both Tottenham and Norwich have already played in-house 11 v 11 matches since practice matches were granted during Step 2 of Project Restart. This friendly fixture is one of the first arranged for Premier League opposition to face each other. (h/t Telegraph)

Tottenham Hotspur have already played Norwich City thrice this season

Similar to pre-season games, the match will helps us test our new tactics and combinations. The guidelines for playing teams has been to be within 90 minutes of travel, which works perfectly for Spurs and Norwich.

Another constraint was that teams are only allowed to face opposition they have already played against twice in the Premier League and will not play in the run-in when the action starts again on June 17.

Spurs have already faced Norwich three times this season. The most recent clash saw us getting knocked out of the FA Cup at home.  All three games were highly competitive, providing the ideal setting for us to test ourselves.

It is imperative that our players are up to full match fitness

Last season Spurs looked off the pace as we took to the field in the UEFA Champions League final after a lengthy break. Hopefully, things will be different this time around and we can hit the ground running.
