Both teams have made four changes as Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur continue their Premier League festive fixtures at Carrow Road this evening.

Jamal Lewis replaces Sam Byram at left-back for the Canaries, barely 48 hours since a 1-0 loss at Aston Villa left Daniel Farke's team bottom of the table.

Mario Vrancic comes in for Tom Trybull in central midfield and it's Marco Stiepermann and Onel Hernandez who come into attacking midfield in place of Todd Cantwell and Kenny McLean - with all the replaced players dropping to the bench.

Christoph Zimmermann retains his starting place to make his 100th appearance for the Canaries, having been signed on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund II in the summer of 2017.

Spurs also rotate but keep England stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli as their attacking threats, with Jose Mourinho forced into replacing midfielder Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks, who serve one-game bans.
