According to Football.London, if Norwich were to finish in 19th place instead of 20th place in the league, they would gain an extra £2 million in prize money.

In a season with little to cheer about, the Canaries find themselves only one point behind 19th placed Watford FC as they host Tottenham on the final day of the Premier League season (Premier League).

With another season in the Championship already confirmed for Dean Smith’s men (ITV), they will be looking to end the campaign on a high and provide their fans with a positive result.

Knowing they will need to be financially strict to once again build their way back to England’s top flight, an added £2 million would likely come in very handy.

Spurs enter the encounter knowing that a victory will secure their place in next season’s Champions League ahead of North London rivals Arsenal.

Due to the Lilywhites’ far superior goal difference, a draw would also effectively secure a top-four finish barring a 16-goal swing on Sunday (Football.London).

Spurs Web Opinion

It seems that Norwich do in fact have something to play for on Sunday. Add to this the fact that players will be looking to impress potential suitors and bow out of the league with an admirable display, Spurs may have a tricky encounter on their hands.

However, Antonio Conte’s winning mentality means he will be drilling any complacency out of his players and we expect Spurs to visit Carrow Road on Sunday with a fierce determination.

  1. If we don’t get the win against Norwich tomorrow, then simply put we don’t deserve to be playing in the Champion’s League! I know a draw is OK but let’s finish with a flurry so we can finally put the 2006 debacle behind us!
