Tottenham have been the dominant side in the first half against Norwich as they lead 1-0 at half time.

There were some surprises in the starting eleven, not least the inclusion of Hugo Lloris, who made his first start after returning from his elbow injury.

Mourinho decided to keep faith with a centre back partnership of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen while he decided to start two attacking full backs in Serge Aurier and Ryan Sessegnon.

He stuck with the same front six as the game against Watford and the likes of Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso have helped Spurs dominate proceedings in the first half.

The Champions League finalists fashioned several good opportunities in the first half hour of the game but lacked the finishing touch to maximise on their opportunities.

The breakthrough eventually came towards the end of the half when Dele finished from close range from a low Aurier cross.

Some Spurs fans were pleased with the side’s display in the first half with several picking out Lo Celso and Serge Aurier for a lot of praise

We got into some good areas in that half but just as in the past few games, our decision making in the final third has largely let us down. That breakthrough came at the right time just but need to show a little more urgency in moving the ball when we come out for the second half.
