Tottenham loses 1-0 at Norwich, 6 points off top 4
NORWICH, England (AP) - A Robert Snodgrass goal early in the second half consigned Tottenham to a 1-0 defeat on Sunday that left the London club six points off the top four, while Norwich moved four points clear of the relegation zone.
“I felt we deserved it, we could have taken more pressure off ourselves,” Norwich manager Chris Hughton said. “We had other good opportunities and kept up our level of performance. I’m immensely proud of the team.”
Snodgrass got past Danny Rose on the left of Tottenham’s defense before drilling past Hugo Lloris in the 47th minute at Carrow Road. Bradley Johnson was then unlucky not to double the lead when his long-range free kick smashed against the underside of the crossbar. Nathan Redmond also brought a fine save from Lloris after working a shooting opportunity in the area.
Snodgrass said the importance of the win couldn’t be overplayed.
“It’s massive, especially with the teams about us losing,” Snodgrass said. “I think the performances over the past 3-4 weeks have been terrific. We’ve been shooting ourselves in the foot with silly mistakes.”
Substitute Roberto Soldado wasted a good chance for Tottenham, sending his shot wide after being set up by Emmanuel Adebayor.
Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy did well to block an attempt from Adebayor as Spurs failed to break down the hosts’ strong defense.
