Having seen Burnley, Leicester City and Manchester City all fail to win on Saturday, Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, took no chances with his team selection as the likes of Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen all started

The visitors felt that they should have had a penalty soon after as Christian Eriksen’s shot was blocked by the arm of Etienne Capoue, but referee Michael Oliver’s decision to reject the appeals would matter little in the end

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have moved up to third in the league table, but remain five points behind leaders Leicester City, while Norwich’s position in the top flight stays precarious as they are just two points off relegation

The match was just nine minutes old when Spurs took the lead as Kasper Schmeichel could only parry Nacer Chadli’s shot into the path of Christian Eriksen, who took a touch before burying his finish into the bottom corner

First-half goals from Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld gave the Lilywhites a deserved two-goal lead at the break, before Kane fired home a second to continue his fine individual form ahead of Kyle Walker adding a fourth
