Spurs have to find a way to stop Norwich ace Teemu Pukki

Tottenham Hotspur take on Norwich City on Wednesday evening and they will have to stop one man if they want to get a result: Teemu Pukki.

On the chalkboard

The Finland international has taken to Premier League football like a duck to water, scoring 10 goals in 22 outings for the promoted club.

While his output has tailed off somewhat – he scored six goals in his first five games, compared to one in his last five – he remains a major threat for the Canaries.

Indeed, he scored the winner last time out as Daniel Farke’s men chalked up a 1-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth.

A true test for any Spurs fan: Can you match these iconic images with the right results?

What scoreline does this iconic Spurs image belong to?

Per WhoScored, the striker is something of a menace in the final third.

He averages 2.6 shots per game along with one key pass and 0.8 dribbles. He also has a passing accuracy of 82.3%, perhaps helping to explain his three assists thus far this term.

Spurs stopping him is key.

Keep his back to goal

If Spurs are able to man-mark Pukki, they should.

This is a player who thrives on cracking off shots on goal and attempting to make things happen.

However, he is not exactly the quickest forward – he has a physically stocky frame and is barrel-chested – and keeping his back to goal would limit the threat he poses considerably.

Defenders engaging him as soon as the ball is coming to him will be key, especially if Spurs are to ensure he does not get any major scoring opportunities at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Will Spurs finish in the top four?





The centre-backs that Mourinho selects will have to be vigilant throughout and ensure that Pukki does not slip through their fingers.

Otherwise, they could be dropping points against Farke’s men again.

Meanwhile, a key Spurs man is nearing a return!
