Norwich City fans are ticking off a new stadium this evening, with the Canaries looking to build on a crucial win over Bournemouth when they take on Tottenham (7.30pm KO) – and our reporters are there to bring you all the updates.

Beating survival rivals Bournemouth kept City's hopes of avoiding relegation alive, moving them to within six points of safety.

That remains the case ahead of this evening's games, with 17th placed West Ham playing at Leicester tonight, but Aston Villa moved out of the bottom three with a 2-1 home win over Watford last night.

With Bournemouth also winning 3-1 at home to Brighton, Watford have slipped back into the drop zone and a shock Norwich win at Spurs would really spark the relegation battle into life, dragging Brighton and Burnley back into trouble.

They face a Tottenham side who have won just one of their last six matches, drawing 0-0 at Watford on Saturday thanks to a Paulo Gazzaniga penalty save.

Jose Mourinho's side have slipped to eighth and nine points adrift of the top four, having been Champions League runners-up under Mauricio Pochettino last season, and they are also without star striker Harry Kane through injury.

The match is City's first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, an impressive 62,000 capacity stadium which opened in April last year.
