Christian Eriksen dispossesses Martin Olsson - the loose ball is picked up by Harry Kane. 

The England striker takes the ball into the area, but instead of striking the post with his shot, elects to find the net.

Game over, as they say.

CLOSE and WOODWORK!

I can understand Norwich's tactics. Dieumerci Mbokani and Cameron Jerome are on so sling the ball into the area. The problem for the home side is their best 'deliverer' Matt Jarvis is off the pitch. Since then the balls have been speculative and rather aimless.

At the other end, Harry Kane's shot comes off the post after he dispossesses Youssouf Mulumbu.

Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe comes on for Steven Naismith - can the Belgian midfielder perform miracles for his side in these last 15 minutes?

SUBSTITUTIONS

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

Tom Carroll comes on for Tottenham's Son Heung-Min, who was asked to play a bit deeper today, but did a commendable job.

Meanwhile, Norwich replace Matt Jarvis with Cameron Jerome.

Altogether now... "in the mixer!"

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

Well, it was a shot. Dieumerci Mbokani lays the ball off to Steven Naismith whose angled shot from 20 yards is a little bit too acute or obtuse. It missed by a few yards.

Matt Jarvis delivers another up and under which again finds the head of Dieumerci Mbokani. Spurs again manage to clear, but the visiting defence is experiencing a far tougher workout than they had in the first 45. Good signs for Norwich.

YELLOW CARD

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

Toby Alderweireld goes into the book for a foul on Steven Naismith - a bit harsh because he got the ball. Nevertheless, it's a free-kick and this ball will be chucked in again...

DISALLOWED GOAL

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

It's thereeeee. No it's not. 

The ball is flung in the mixer. Steven Naismith's shot is half-blocked. He has another poke and the ball trickles towards goal where Sebastian Bassong is standing. The Cameroon defender smashes it in from a yard - but he's flagged offside. 

Good call by the lino, to be fair.

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

Corner to Norwich. Can they grab something from this? Initially no. But then Matt Jarvis delivers an in-swinger that finds Steven Naismith's head. The Scot back-flicks the ball but his effort misses the far post by half a foot.

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

The start of the second half has followed the start of the first. Spurs on top and playing the ball in and around the Canaries area. Each time Norwich clear, the ball lands at the feet of a white-shirted fella.

KICK-OFF

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

We are back under way.

SUBSTITUTION

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

Nacer Chadli comes on for Spurs scorer Dele Alli at half-time. There didn't seem to be anything wrong with him in the first half. Will keep you posted.

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

30 - Harry Kane has scored 30 PL goals since January 1 2015, five more than any other player (Aguero, 25). Contender.

HALF-TIME

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

It's been oh so comfortable for Spurs.

Ref Kevin Friend is booed off - I think they feel a challenge on Steven Naismith a few moments ago deserved a pen. I didn't think so.

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

The ball is flung in by Matt Jarvis, but Dele Alli does a good job in defence and clears. Alex Neil is preparing a Churchillian HT teamtalk as I type...

Norwich have a free-kick - a minute until HT.

CLOSE!

It should have been 3-0. 

Full-back Danny Rose cruises down the left - you know, the side occupied by the... er.. superb Ivo Pinto - he delivers a cross which finds the head of Dele Alli. However, the goalscorer heads wide from six yards - he should have hit the target.

Norwich 0-2 Tottenham

Harry Kane's playing against a Duplo defence - it's that easy. Ivo Pinto is strung one way then the other and fires a low shot that Declan Rudd drops low to save at his near post. The Norwich keeper has had a busy night already.

Harry Kane

Keeper Declan Rudd went the wrong way and Harry Kane strokes the ball in. Had Rudd gone the right way, then Kane's effort would have looked poor. But he didn't.

PENALTY

Norwich 0-1 Tottenham

Harry Kane's low strike is saved by Declan Rudd, but as Dele Alli tries to follow-up he is brought down by defender Sebastian Bassong. Referee Kevin Friend points to the spot after a wee think about it.

Norwich 0-1 Tottenham

Do the Canaries realise they sit two points above the bottom three? There is a lack of bite from their midfield.

But Matt Jarvis has forced a corner after a good run down the left...

Nothing comes from the free-kick. The ball never beat the first Spurs defender.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking as comfortable as you can look as a manager watching his team play Premier League opposition in the first half. But wait, Norwich have a free-kick, on the left and 10 yards from the box...

Son Heung-min almost makes it 2-0. The South Korea attacking midfielder produces a cheeky deft flick from Harry Kane's left-wing cross that is instinctively pushed behind by keeper Declan Rudd.

Norwich 0-1 Tottenham

Norwich have their first effort on goal. Dieumerci Mbokani twists and turns on the edge of the area and fires in a shot that Hugo Lloris comfortably gathers low down.

The Canaries clear but once again the loose ball arrives at the feet of a Spurs player. Norwich defender Timm Klose finally gets it clear.

Dean, Birmingham: Bit the bullet and finally put Dele Alli in my fantasy team and he rewards me with a goal inside two minutes. No better feeling.

10 - Dele Alli has had a hand in 10 goals in his last 13 Premier League games for Spurs (six goals, four assists). Update.

Norwich 0-1 Tottenham

That didn't take long eh? The Canaries defence is all over the shop. They need a quick response.

GOAL - Norwich 0-1 Tottenham

Dele Alli

It was one minute and 36 seconds to be precise. 

A corner is whipped in from the left by Christian Eriksen. Toby Alderweireld has a first shot on goal from the edge of the area -  that effort is blocked - and then Eriksen forces a great low stop from Declan Rudd.

Unfortunately for the keeper, he pushes the ball into the path of Dele Alli, who has a simple tap-in.

Norwich 0-0 Tottenham

After a minute's applause at Carrow Road for former Norwich player Tommy Bryceland, who has died aged 76, we get under way.

Ready?

Norwich v Tottenham (19:45 GMT)

The teams are out, the weather is dry in this part of East Anglia and Declan Rudd looks like a luminous pink marker.

What the managers say

Norwich v Tottenham (19:45 GMT)

Norwich manager Alex Neil: "Our home form has been good and we want to make sure we get back to winning ways.

"I don't see why Tottenham can't be considered title contenders. They're one of the best sides we've played."

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "We know Norwich is a team that had 10 days to prepare for our game, but our mentality is good, we are strong and we need to compete.

"We analysed the last few games from Norwich and they are very difficult to play."
