West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur
TV: Sky Sports Premier League
Tottenham away from Wembley will be looking for some more potency in front of goal this weekend, as they look to bounce back from their disappointing bore draw against Swansea.
West Ham will be looking to get at least a point out of this game as their recovery from their poor start and will be a tough nut to crack for Spurs, as they have not conceded in their last three games.
Whereas Tottenham will be looking to push into the top four and gain momentum in their season, and will want to enact some revenge at the London Stadium after their title hopes were well and truly finished there last season.
Slaven Bilic will once again be without Manuel Lanzini as he recovers from a knee injury; James Collins who will be out for a few weeks with a calf strain joins him on the physio’s bed. Pedro Obiang is also a doubt for this weekend’s game after picking a knock up in his last game, although Bilic will be glad to have captain Mark Noble back in the team.
Mauricio Pochettino has no new injuries to worry about but he will still be without defender Danny Rose and midfielders Erik Lamela and Victor Wanyama as they all have long-term injuries.
West Ham: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Fonte, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Kouyate, Noble, Antonio, Arnautovic, Hernandez.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Aurier, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Trippier, Dier, Eriksen, Alli, Kane.
Score Prediction: 1-2
This should be a close competitive game as both sides have a lot to play for. Although Tottenham is the favourites to win, I don’t expect them to get the game all to themselves as West Ham have the players to hurt anyone when they are in good form.
