Christian Eriksen: Set for Spurs stay

Norwich City boast a good recent record against Tottenham ahead of their trip to White Hart Lane, but Christian Eriksen has form for scoring on Boxing Day.

Team news

Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason could feature after he returned to training this week following almost a month out with an ankle injury.

Danny Rose is also available again after missing last weekend’s win over Southampton through illness.

Norwich, meanwhile, remain without Matt Jarvis, who is expected to return from a knee injury at some stage over the festive period but is not quite ready to play.

Andre Wisdom, who missed the win at Manchester United with a hamstring injury, is “touch and go”, but Alex Neil has no other injury concerns.
