Spurs seeks Saints repeat

CLINT DEMPSEY thinks Tottenham will have no problem swatting aside Norwich tonight if the Londoners put on a repeat display of the one that took care of Southampton on Sunday.

Tottenham returned to winning ways at the weekend with a 2-1 win at St Mary's, with Dempsey bagging the winner following a first-half deluge in which the Londoners could have bagged four or five goals.

Although their efforts were much more measured after the break, the gulf in class between the two sides was clear, and that should be the case again tonight at Carrow Road if Spurs play to their full potential.

"It's going to be a difficult game," the American said.

"I saw the game against Villa. It was at Villa Park and they were taking it to them in the second half so Norwich are a team that does have quality and a good work-rate.

"We will have to go there, be sharp and put in a professional performance, but I feel that if we go there and play as we are capable of and perform as we did in the first half at Southampton, we will be fine," he added.
