Spurs must beat Norwich to continue run of golden Septembers

| 12.09.2013

Here are some stats about September. It is National Guide Dog month, the month in which Father’s Day is celebrated in Australia and the month that Mexico and Brazil enjoy their Independence Days.

Perhaps less important on a worldwide scale, but great for those wanting to have a Premier League bet, it is also the month that Tottenham tend to enjoy winning in.

In fact, in each of the last two seasons, they would have finished top of the Premier League standings if only the results from September were taken into consideration, collecting three wins from three in the 2011/12 campaign and then taking 10 points from a possible 12 in the last.

The two dropped points last season came when Norwich left White Hart Lane with a draw and given that Spurs have already lost this September to Arsenal, they must win their remaining three fixtures this month to have a chance of emulating their past September glories.

It is 4/9 that Tottenham do beat Norwich, even though they failed to beat them in any of their three meetings in all competitions last season and of the three goals they scored, two were registered by the now-departed Gareth Bale.

The good news for Tottenham is that they have managed to find the target at least once in each of their last six showdowns with Norwich, although they have only netted exactly once in each of the last four.

The Goal Crazy market shows a price of 31/20 that Spurs either score zero or one goal against Norwich, with 8/1 on offer that Tottenham win 1-0.

All three of Tottenham’s Premier League games thus far have ended with this scoreline, alongside two of the three that have featured Norwich.
