Chris Hughton’s Norwich City suffered a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham at White Hart Lane during the weekend. It was a match that was very one-sided because Tottenham dominated the entire encounter in all areas of the pitch. They had a remarkable 70% possession, while also creating a lot of chances as well. Hughton could only praised his opposition after the match because they were extremely brilliant. Tottenham came into the match on the back of the 1-0 defeat against Arsenal in the previous encounter. This was a very difficult defeat for Andre Villas-Boas because he paraded a number of his new signings.

Tottenham have spent more than £ 100 million in this transfer window, although they have recovered most of the money following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid. Despite the new signings, it was Gylfi Sigurdsson who managed to take the plaudits with two goals. He scored on a visit of the break to give Tottenham all three points. Hughton, though, reckons that it was largely down to the second goal in the 49th minute that his team were unable to come back into the match. It was very difficult to motivate the players after conceding so early in the second half.

Hughton will be hoping that his players recover soon for the visit of Aston Villa.

“They have got an awful lot of quality on the pitch. There are no complaints with the result. We needed to get a foothold in the game for longer periods, but we were up against a very impressive Tottenham team. We had better spells in the second half and we threatened more, so it was one that really hurt us. It is always going to be very difficult coming here, but it wasn’t to be and we need to dust ourselves down and be better next week,” said Hughton.
