Defoe details Norwich danger after recent win over rivals

TOTTENHAM striker Jermain Defoe has warned his team-mates that Norwich will tonight pose a significant threat because of the confidence they are building that began with their win over Arsenal.

Spurs are to travel to Carrow Road, where club favourite and former assistant Chris Hughton is manager, in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup and Defoe, who worked under Hughton before the latter’s 2007 departure from the club, is expecting a considerable challenge after Norwich followed a 1-0 victory over Arsenal with a 1-1 draw away to Aston Villa.

“It’s another hard game, they had a fantastic result against Arsenal,” said Defoe. “I’m sure Chrissie [Hughton] was delighted with that performance and to beat Arsenal, not many teams do that.

“I can imagine they are buzzing after a win like that. It’s another away game, another tough game.”
