Spurs need to bounce back against the Canaries after defeat at Arsenal.
"Norwich did well last season," Dawson told Norwich's website. "We played them early on at the Lane, they caused us a few problems and managed to get away with a draw. Of course, we then lost in the League Cup and drew in the Premier League at Carrow Road.
"They've made some big signings like van Wolfswinkel, Fer and Nathan Redmond from Birmingham. They have a good squad, always a tough team to play and they will be fired up - so will we."
