Tottenham Hotspur face Norwich City for the second time in the space of a month tomorrow night, with the sides playing out a 2-2 draw back in December at Carrow Road.

Spurs come into the match off the back of some poor form, with the club not winning a single Premier League game since Boxing Day last year.

However, Norwich are experiencing equally poor form in the league, with just one win from their last five matches. The Canaries currently sit rock bottom of the league with 17 points.

Tottenham are on 31 points and chasing the top four pack for a prestigious Champions League spot next season, and the money and silverware opportunity that comes with it.

Despite recording losses to Liverpool and Southampton, a draw against Watford, and a narrow win over Championship Middlesbrough this year, Mourinho insists that his side are playing well.

The Special One is optimistic for the match against Norwich tomorrow (Football London): “We’re very optimistic. We know them well, we played them a month ago. We’re playing well, we’re not getting the results we should & that we deserve. We’re not scoring the goals we could.

“We believe that better days are coming. We’re positive. Three days where after the first day of recovering we still managed to two days to work tactically and improve step by step. It’s today two months since my arrival and we’re positive.

“Good atmosphere, players very positive, players happy with some little evolutions that we had in the last couple of weeks. We like to play at home, let’s go for it.

“We know Norwich come from a victory and closed the gap to their targets. But we believe in ourselves and we are ready. Tomorrow is going to be our day.

“You look to the Premier League table and apart from the champions, that is done, apart from City and Leicester, that they’re also very comfortable in their positions, you look to the rest of the table and two victories and two defeats will make a huge difference. The people in the relegation zone, they win two matches and they come out of it.

“The people fighting for top four or six, you lose two matches and you drop back and you win two matches and you go up. So I think every game has a meaning. Every game has a meaning. I cannot say that but I know Norwich are in their fight and they come from a positive victory and they will try to get their points.”
