Tonight could see Tottenham cut Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League to just one point, should they beat a stubborn West Ham side at the London Stadium.
West Ham have gained such a reputation thanks to their recent good form, which has seen the Hammers keep three clean sheets in four games, maintaining an unbeaten status throughout the process. Tottenham, on the other hand, are in their own rich vein of form, toppling Arsenal in the North London derby to record their ninth straight victory and maintain their unbeaten home form this season.
No prizes for guessing who scored for Spurs on Sunday, as England’s two most potent attacking youngsters dismantled Arsene Wenger’s apathetic Arsenal assemble at White Hart Lane – Dele Alli notching his 17th Premier League goal of the season, while Harry Kane continued his ridiculous scoring streak in London derbies with his 21st Premier League goal of yet another incredible season for the young forward.
Andy Carroll and Arthur Masuaku will be handed late fitness tests ahead of the game, while Michail Antonio, Diafra Sakho, Pedro Obiang and Angelo Ogbonna are all out for the remainder of the season. For Tottenham, nothing much changes as Danny Rose continues to struggle for fitness, and Erik Lamela, Harry Winks and Cameron Carter-Vickers are out for the rest of the campaign.
