The Canaries grabbed their first win on the road in four matches thanks to goals from Anthony Pilkington and Elliott Bennett either side of Jermain Defoe’s leveler as Paul Lambert’s men moved back into the top half of the table.
Norwich took a 13th minute lead when Pilkington dispossessed Younes Kaboul before causing all sorts of bother in the Spurs box with Aaron Wilbraham’s attempted shot deflected into the path of the midfielder who fired home for his eighth of the campaign.
Just after the half-hour mark, Tottenham equalised against the run of play when Defoe latched onto a pinpoint through ball from Jake Livermore before taking a touch and then deftly chipping an advancing John Ruddy to make it 1-1 which was a rather fortunate scoreline for the home side.
A couple of minutes later, Bennett scored the eventual winner with a fine strike which rocketed past Brad Friedel from the edge of the area to give the promoted club a huge victory over a potential Champions League contender.
