Team news ahead of Tottenham's Premier League clash with Norwich at White Hart Lane on Saturday. Moussa Dembele could be handed his Tottenham debut as Andre Villas-Boas looks to record his first win of the season against the Canaries. Steven Caulker could make his first Premier League start after fellow defender Younes Kaboul was ruled out with a knee injury. Scott Parker (Achilles), Giovani Dos Santos (calf) and Heurelho Gomes (ankle) are unavailable. Simon Lappin will miss Norwich's trip to the capital with an ankle ligament injury he picked up in the midweek Capital One Cup victory against Scunthorpe. Lappin will be out of action for three weeks, while fellow midfielder Robert Snodgrass trained on Thursday after suffering a minor leg injury last weekend and should be fit. Goalkeeper Mark Bunn will not make the trip after signing from Blackburn but holding midfielder Alex Tettey, signed from Rennes, could feature from the bench.
