with very little to show from their visit to White Hart Lane.
Spurs were on the back foot early on, but Gary Lineker took David Howells' through ball around Norwich goalkeeper Bryan Gunn in the 24th minute to put Tottenham ahead.

matters in this game at Carrow Road, with Norwich grabbing a late winner
to take the points.
Ally Dick and Keith Bertschin cancelled each other's goals out inside the first four minutes of the match at Carrow Road. Peter Mendham intercepted Glenn Hoddle's diagonal pass and put Bertschin in on goal and he finished with a low shot from 12 yards out in the third minute. However, within a minute, Dick picked up the ball on the left and went past two defenders before shooting past Chris Woods from a narrow angle to make it 1-1.
Barham was denied a shooting opportunity with a fine tackle and Hoddle hit the stanchion with a volley, before Mark Falco made Woods dive to keep out a low shot.
In the second half, Mick Channon picked up a yellow card for a foul on Hughton and then played Louis Donowa down the wing and his cross was headed narrowly wide by Bertschin, with Denis van Wyk hitting a 20 yard shot just wide soon afterwards. Steve Archibald brought the best out of Woods at the other end with a header that was very well saved and then should have done better when put clear by Hoddle's pass, but with Woods stranded, the Scot shot wide.
