Did this Spurs duo earn starts against Man Utd with key contributions in Norwich friendly? –


    Tottenham stepped up their preparations for next weekend’s Premier League return with a friendly against Norwich City on Friday.

    Jose Mourinho’s side face Manchester United at home next week and are set to play another friendly on Saturday as the squad builds fitness for the delayed run-in.

    Unfortunately, Spurs lost 2-1 to Norwich despite leading through Erik Lamela. According to the match report, which was posted on the club’s official website, the Canaries turned things around with two quick second half goals.

    There are no videos from the match – perhaps Mourinho is keeping the team’s tactics private ahead of the United clash – but the report reveals Steven Bergwijn created Lamela’s goal, a diving header than went in off the bar.

    It’s impossible to read too far into things without seeing the footage, but we’re wondering if Bergwijn and Lamela have done enough to earn starts against United with their key contributions.

    Bergwijn certainly has a good chance, especially if a report we relayed on Friday is to be believed. Football Insider claims Lucas Moura is the forward most likely to lose his place in the team, which surely means Bergwijn is set to start.

    Lamela is probably more likely to be used from the bench, such is his effectiveness as an impact substitute.
