Tottenham beaten by Norwich City in friendly at stadium ahead of Premier League restart
Tottenham lost to Norwich City during a friendly at their £1billion stadium on Friday because the clubs stepped up preparations for the return to Premier League action.

The remaining 92 games of the season are going to be played out behind closed doors, 

starting with an Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Manchester City vs Arsenal double-header on June 17.

Clubs are back in touch training for 2 weeks, with Spurs every week ago playing an 11-vs-11 match in their empty stadium because the squad still build fitness.




On Friday, Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn all featured for Tottenham in an unusual match against Norwich composed of 4 30-minute quarters after recovering from injury.

Erik Lamela gave the hosts the lead, though they ultimately slipped to defeat following late efforts from Canaries duo Josip Drmic and Mario Vrancic.

Tottenham were also thanks to face Championship side Reading in another friendly on Saturday, although Standard Sport understands that match will not happen .

Spurs remain during a battle to end within the Premier League’s top four, 

with a win in their first game back against Manchester United on June 19 likely key to their end-of-season aims.

A London derby against West Ham on Midsummer Eve follows.

Norwich also are back in action on June 19, hosting Southampton a few of hours before Spurs kick-off against United.
