Tottenham Hotspur take on West Ham United today in a six-pointer that will help shape the race for the top four before international play gets underway. The two London clubs are level on points at 48 with goal differential putting the Hammers above Spurs for the moment.
Antonio Conte has stressed how important every match is, but it takes on a different feel when it’s against a local rival and the stakes get bigger while the season progresses. While Spurs have a match in hand, it’s vital to get all three points. Doing so would put Spurs in fifth place ahead of both West Ham and Manchester United and provide a massive boost of confidence. Let’s see if the boys can get the job done.

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you’re here, though, we have a few rules and regulations:
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. Don’t knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you’re frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, transphobic, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
