West Ham have come out of the October international break firing on all cylinders with convincing wins against Everton and Racing Genk over the past week.
It’s been more of a mixed bag for London rivals Tottenham who followed up their victory against Newcastle last weekend with a disappointing defeat in Europe to Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday.
Hammers boss David Moyes will have to decide whether to risk Vladimir Coufal. The Czech has had a painkilling injection for a pelvis injury but Ben Johnson’s performances may keep him in the starting eleven. Alex Kral is absent due to the virus.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Tottenham:
Fabianski, Johnson, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Fornals, Rice, Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma
Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo could welcome back Matt Doherty but Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) is still on the treatment table.
Tottenham’s Predicted XI:
Lloris, Emerson, Romero, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Skipp, Moura, Kane, Son
The bookmakers have made West Ham the slight favourites with William Hill pricing them at 11/8 for the win. A draw is 5/2 with Sky Bet while a victory for Spurs is 11/5 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 2-1 to West Ham
