Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United will continue in their bid for a top four spot in the Premier League when they face off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday evening.
Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to continue their winning momentum after they secured a 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium on Wednesday through goals from Cristian Romero and Harry Kane.
Spurs have managed to secure two wins and one defeat in their last three games following their 5-0 thrashing of Everton before their thrilling 3-2 defeat at the hands of Manchester United followed by a 2-0 win over Bright in their last league match.
Antonio Conte’s side currently occupies seventh place in the league with 48 points to their name, having won 15, drawn three and suffered 10 defeats in 28 matches played thus far.
West Ham United will come into this game high in confidence after they managed to secure a 2-1 victory over an in-form Aston Villa side at the London Stadium on Sunday after Andriy Yarmolenko and Pablo Fornals cancelled out Jacob Ramsey’s late goal.
Like Spurs, the Hammers have secured two wins and one defeat in their last three games, first clinching a 1-0 win over Wolves followed by a narrow 1-0 defeat to title contenders Liverpool before they returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Villa in their last league encounter.
David Moyes’ men are a place above Spurs in sixth place with the same amount of points as their London rivals after they won 14 games, drew six and conceded nine defeats in 29 matches.
In the last five Premier League games between the teams, the results are evenly split with Spurs and West both winning two games, while one match has ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Despite his slow start to the campaign, Harry Kane has begun to rediscover his form in front of goal, having scored seven goals in his last six matches for Spurs.
Jarrod Bowen will be determined to pick his form up again in the league having not scored in his four games, the West Ham attacker remains a threat up front as he has already eight goals and claimed 10 assists in 28 league appearances.
Antonio Conte will be without the services of three players for the next game as Japhet Tanganga, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon remain sidelined due to injury, while David Moyes only has one injury in the form of Angelo Ogbonna, who continues to nurse his cruciate ligament rupture injury.
