Tottenham vs West Ham Preview


Tottenham will feel they can win this match, giving hope to their hunt for a spot among the top four. Ange Postecoglou's side is looking to bounce back from their losses to Aston Villa, Wolves, and recent draw against Manchester City. On the periphery of Champions League football, can Tottenham continue their rich vain of form and finally cement that fourth-place spot? While they are favorites going into the game, the Hammers won’t be an easy side to bully.


West Ham are currently on an unbeaten run of three games in the Premier League. After a tough, inconsistent start to the season, David Moyes has turned things around and is looking like a formidable opponent come matchday 16. Two wins in their last six EPL games lifted West Ham to 9th in the table. Their wins against Burnley and Nott Forest will surely boost their confidence heading into the London derby, despite their recent draw to Palace blemishing the unbeaten run.
