Tottenham Hotspur have lost ground in the race for Champions League qualification as Norwich City boosted their hopes of Premier League football survival with a 1-0 victory at home.

Robert Snodgrass claimed the decisive goal in the 47th minute at Carrow Road to give Norwich just their second win in 12 games and lift Chris Hughton's side four points clear of the relegation zone.

Tottenham were bidding to return to within three points of fourth-place Liverpool, 4-3 victors against Swansea City, but were instead left six points below the Champions League berths in fifth place.
