Tottenham's bid to qualify for the Champions League suffered another setback as Norwich clinched a shock 2-1 win at White Hart Lane yesterday.

Norwich took an early lead through Anthony Pilkington and, although Jermain Defoe equalised before the break, it was the Canaries who deservedly took the points thanks to Elliott Bennett’s second half winner.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s beat Bolton Wanderers 2-0 at St James’ Park as the Magpies maintained their bid for Champions League qualification.

Hatem Ben Arfa’s 73rd-minute stunner, allied to Papiss Demba Cisse’s 10th goal in nine games, saw Newcastle draw level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham.
