Alli should have scored it after he played a sharp one-two with Erik Lamela but with only Rudd to beat, he found the keeper’s legs. The midfielder was involved again soon after as his driving run forward saw the ball fall kindly for Lamela, who tried an audacious rabona only for Rudd to dive across and make the save. Spurs were rampant but Norwich hung on and the Canaries enjoyed a better spell after the hour. There were cries for a penalty when Jerome was wiped out by Lloris in the area but the French keeper punched the ball away first and Jones appeared right to wave play on. Any hopes of a Norwich comeback, however, were extinguished in the 74th minute when Carroll, three minutes after coming on as a substitute, smashed a swerving shot from 25 yards into the bottom corner. As the 23-year-old, an academy graduate, celebrated his first league goal in a Tottenham shirt, the White Hart Lane faithful ended the match as they began, breaking into another rendition of ‘one of our own’. TWEET OF THE MATCH @RodneyMarsh10: ” This season Harry Kane has scored more goals than Depay, Martial & Rooney combined! £100m player !'” Harry Kane was among the goals again at White Hart Lane. https://twitter.com/RodneyMarsh10/status/680788054022467585 PLAYER RATINGS TOTTENHAM Hugo Lloris: 6 Kyle Walker: 7 Toby Alderweireld : 6 Jan Vertonghen: 6 Ben Davies: 6 Eric Dier: 6 Mousa Dembele: 7 Christian Eriksen: 7 Dele Alli: 9 Erik Lamela: 8 Harry Kane: 9 Substitutes Tom Carroll: 7 Son Heung-min: 5 Nacer Chadli: 5 NORWICH Declan Rudd: 5 Russell Martin: 5 Sebastien Bassong: 6 Ryan Bennett: 6 Martin Olsson: 5 Youssouf Mulumbu: 5 Alex Tettey: 6 Nathan Redmond: 6 Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe: 7 Robbie Brady: 6 Cameron Jerome: 7 Substitutes Graham Dorrans: 5 Jonathan Howson: 5 Dieumerci Mbokani: 5 STAR PLAYER Harry Kane: The striker’s double means he now has 13 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season and also saw him break Teddy Sheringham’s club record of 26 league goals in a calendar year. Another stirring performance from the striker. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Erik Lamela scored a stunning ‘rabona’ goal in the Europa League last season and he almost pulled it off again in the second half, shooting audaciously with his left foot only for Declan Rudd to make a diving save. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Mauricio Pochettino will be delighted with another impressive performance from his players, which makes it two consecutive wins since their shock home defeat to Newcastle a fortnight ago. Alex Neil’s side struggled to cope at White Hart Lane but he will know Monday’s clash at home to Aston Villa is his side’s crunch game of the Christmas period. MOAN OF THE MATCH Kane should have had a hat-trick in the second half when Tottenham had four against one in the penalty area but they somehow managed not to score. WHO’S UP NEXT Watford v Tottenham (Barclays Premier League, Monday, December 28) Norwich v Aston Villa (Barclays Premier League, Monday, December 28) Kane’s two goals, the first from the penalty spot, means he now has 27 league goals in 2015 and has broken Teddy Sheringham’s previous club record of 26. Substitute Tom Carroll rounded off the victory with a superb second-half strike as Mauricio Pochettino’s side move three points clear of Manchester United in the race for the Champions League. Norwich sit 17th. It took four seconds for the first ‘one our own chants’ to break out around White Hart Lane as Kane continues to make light of those early one-season wonder predictions, his tally now 11 goals in the league and 13 in all competitions. Dele Alli was the provider for both and the midfielder played another impressive supporting role before going off to a standing ovation late on. Norwich, meanwhile, were unable to follow up their surprise win at Old Trafford and they now have 24 hours to prepare for a crunch basement battle at home to Aston Villa on Monday. The Canaries were the brighter side early on as Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe’s bending shot from distance was pushed wide by Hugo Lloris and then Cameron Jerome climbed highest at a corner but headed over. Alli, however, was finding more and more space behind the Norwich midfield and it was his deft reverse pass that led to the opening goal, Kane nicking the ball around Rudd before feeling the clip of the keeper’s gloves and tumbling over. There was no further punishment for Rudd given Kane’s touch had taken him away from goal but referee Mike Jones pointed to the spot and the Spurs striker confidently drilled the penalty home. The goal seemed to drain the belief out of Norwich as the half ended with Alli jinking past Russell Martin with a nutmeg and Toby Alderweireld going close with two free headers, the first saved well by Rudd. Tottenham had thrown away 11 points from winning positions before kick-off, the second most in the league, so it was perhaps no surprise that Pochettino was raging after the restart, geeing up the crowd and hounding his players to go in search of a third. Harry Kane became Tottenham’s highest league scorer in a calendar year as his first-half double fired Spurs to a 3-0 victory over struggling Norwich. Press Association
ELEAGUE, the esports brand from Turner Sports and IMG, has announced they’re set to engage “a collection of cutting-edge technologies” to enhance the upcoming CS:GO Premier. The tournament which kicks off September 8th, is set to work with a number of companies to provide new ways of viewing the tournament.First, in partnership with their official PC Hardware provider Dell Gaming, they’re set to be bringing biometric analysis to fans. Using eye-tracking technology developed by Tobii, they’re set to be collecting data thanks to the micro projectors and sensors, to show the situational awareness and reaction times to show the audience how players operate at the top level of competition. Video examples of this in operation are available here.Next up is virtual reality brought in from SLIVER.tv, a company already providing services to ESL and DreamHack in CS:GO. Taking the same technology from there, SLIVER allows the VR viewer to watch the game from any point in the map, as well as watching the standard audience stream as if you’re in the game.Dojo Madness’ Shadow.GG platform, displaying a game of CS:GO.Robert Occhialini, VP Esports Products and Technology for Turner Sports talked about the VR addition: “We’re very proud of ELEAGUE’s 2D production. One of the great things about the SLIVER.tv experience is that you get all of the immersive VR experience but you still have the ability to enjoy our production. It made SLIVER.tv a fantastic fit for ELEAGUE. Their platform ubiquity – not just being available via one VR headset – is really remarkable. We like offering the ‘build-a-bear’ type of esports experience with respect to having ultimate viewer choice, but we also realize that many people like to lean back and enjoy the broadcast. What we have [with our 2D production being available inside the 3D rendering] is the sweet spot, the combination of those two.”Finally ELEAGUE bring in Dojo Madness, to take advantage of their Shadow.GG platform. Their innovative platform allows ELEAGUE to show advanced data on the fly, from heatmaps to tactical and statistical replays. This will provide more data on how the teams operate at the highest level of competition.Occhialini added for the use of Shadow.GG: “With traditional sports, the challenge with incorporating advanced analytics is data capture – so I was super intrigued to apply them to a sport that is built on data. A lot of the time in esports today, analysts or fans ask only ‘who won?’ There isn’t a lot of ‘why did they win?’ We see this as the beginning of getting into the ‘why’ teams won.”Esports Insider says: Big new technologies to be taken advantage of by ELEAGUE here. The eye-tracking data is set to be an interesting addition here, allowing the commentary team to provide more details on how players use the screen space to play the game. Dojo Madness joining in through their platform to explain the statistics behind CS:GO is also a good move from Turner.
