Norwich City are set to play a friendly game with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur this coming Friday according to the Daily Telegraph.

With the resumption of the Premier League and Norwich being set to play their first competitive game of the re-start on Friday 19th June, time is running out for sides to get themselves some match fitness before the action starts.

Norwich and Spurs have played three times this season, with both of their league games out of the way, leaving them free to take advantage of a friendly game. The Canaries played out a controversial 2-2 draw with Spurs at Carrow Road in December, when Teemu Pukki had a goal ruled out for offside by VAR by the most pathetic of small margins. It was actually his hand offside, a part of the body he couldn’t score with anyway but there you go.

Norwich then lost 2-1 at the new Spurs stadium in a quick return in January before beating Tottenham there in the FA Cup via a penalty shootout a month later to set up a quarter-final with Manchester United, now set for 27th June.

There’s no official word from the clubs yet and the venue is unknown, to me though, it seems likely to be played at one of the club’s stadiums to help with acclimatisation.
