West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur

London Stadium is the venue as West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to-head in an all-London Premier League match-up.

West Ham can’t forget their Saturday’s trip to Newcastle United soon enough after becoming the first side since Reading in 2013 to lead by two goals as late as the 77th minute in a Premier League defeat, significantly derailing their chances of securing a top-six finish. Stranded four points adrift of sixth-placed Manchester United despite having played one more game, the Hammers will take the field in pursuit of their first top-flight win since early March (D2, L1). However, David Moyes’ men haven’t fared well on home turf lately, picking up just one win in their last six league matches at the London Stadium (D4, L1). That paints a bleak picture for the West Ham faithful, praying for their first top-flight double against fierce cross-town rivals since 2013/14.

Tottenham slumped to a 2-1 home loss to the Hammers in December and will be out to exact revenge after racking up three wins across their last four Premier League matches (L1), including a 2-1 comeback triumph against Luton at the weekend. But that could prove easier said than done as Spurs have only won once on their last five league travels (D2, L2), frustratingly conceding 2+ goals in all four winless outings in that sequence. Manager Ange Postecoglou must address Tottenham’s defensive woes to bolster his side’s chances of upholding an eye-catching win ratio of 70% as pre-match favorites and, in turn, bring them one step closer to returning to the Champions League. A slow start may not deter the North London powerhouse from claiming their vengeance, considering their last six Premier League triumphs have seen them concede the opening goal.
