  1. The whistle goes for full-time and Norwich have picked up a well-earned point after a 1-1 draw at Tottenham, which leaves both sides without a victory in the Premier League this season.

  2. 90+3

    Norwich break quickly but Johnson's powerful shot is well saved by Friedel, who has been Tottenham's most impressive player today.

  3. 90+2

    Dembele tries to unlock the door as time runs out but there is no way through and his weak shot is easily held by Ruddy.

  4. 90+1

    Four minutes of stoppage time have been signalled and it is Norwich who will fancy their chances of snatching a late winner as they go up against ten men.

  5. 89

    RED CARD Huddlestone may have only just come on but he is already walking off after being dismissed for a foul on Howson which left the Norwich player requiring treatment, although the replays suggest the decision was a tad harsh.

  6. 87

    Bale gets shown a yellow card for a show of petulance after being denied what he felt should have been a corner, throwing the ball away in anger.

  7. 86

    Huddlestone has a sledgehammer of a shot but he does not make Ruddy work here with an effort that flies well wide.

  8. 85

    GOAL Snodgrass draws Norwich level with a well-controlled volley from inside the area after Martin and Holt had done well to set him up following a high ball into the box.

  9. 83

    Tottenham became very nervous in the closing stages against West Brom last week before eventually conceding an equaliser, and there is a lot of anxiety around White Hart Lane again right now.

  10. 81

    Villas-Boas attempts to shore things up for the final ten minutes by taking off Defoe and introducing Huddlestone, who had looked set to leave Tottenham during the transfer window.

  11. 80

    Adebayor shows his strength to hold up play and win a corner for Tottenham, relieving the pressure and putting Norwich on the back foot again.

  12. 79

    Norwich have certainly not given up hope here, as Garrido delivers a dangerous cross that Gallas deals with effectively.

  13. 78

    Bale makes Ruddy work with another shot from distance that takes a slight deflection but not enough to trouble the keeper.

  14. 76

    Norwich's players scream for a penalty as Morison goes down in the area under pressure from Assou-Ekotto, but their appeals fall on deaf ears. The replays suggest Assou-Ekotto may have been fortunate as he was tugging the substitute's shirt.

  15. 74

    Bale picks out Lennon with a fine long pass but Adebayor surrenders possession when the ball is played into him in a tight area.

  16. 72

    Hughton makes his first change of the afternoon as he replaces Jackson with Morison in an effort to get Norwich back into the game.

  17. 70

    The Tottenham crowd is in good spirits after that goal and the home team now look much more confident as they pass it around with greater purpose.

  18. 68

    GOAL Dembele scores on his debut with a fine finish from just inside the area that arrows into the bottom corner, having turned inside Howson with a neat piece of skill.

  19. 66

    Assou-Ekotto's outswinging cross finds its way through to Defoe in the centre but appears to catch the striker a little by surprise and he is unable to control it.

  20. 64

    Neither Bale nor Lennon have quite been on top of their game today, which is a major drawback when Tottenham rely so heavily on their wingers.
