Tottenham have now won all three of their away games in the Premier League while scoring eight goals, lessening the impact of their failure to get a top-flight victory at Wembley so far this term. A win over their arch-rivals could build upon this and kickstart their season.
Away trips to West Ham have not provided much more joy in recent seasons, though, and even at this early stage of the campaign defeat in East London could have a significant impact on their title hopes – as it has in both of the past two seasons. A win over top opposition would, moreover, surely secure Slaven Bilic’s position as manager for the immediate future, ending speculation over his replacement.
As reported by the Mirror, Bilic said: “They have patterns, good players and, for me, that makes them one of the best teams probably the most attractive one”. Anyone looking for a riskier play could take Tottenham -1, I think Spurs will cover the handicap.
A 10-man Tottenham Hotspurs beat West Ham 3-2 in the English Premier League (EPL)’s sixth round at the London Stadium on Saturday. At around 12:55 p.m.at the Olympic Stadium, West Ham was buzzing about its home pitch.
However, the goal threat by West Ham was not enough as Tottenham held strong to collect all three points from the home side in an entertaining Premier League encounter.
The hosts have Manuel Lanzini ruled out with a knee injury, while Mark Noble (knee), Collins (ankle) and Edimilson Fernandes (ankle) are doubts for the game.
Meanwhile, Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, said: “It was a very tough game”.
Tottenham will have left-back Ben Davies available again for selection after an ankle injury and have reported no fresh concerns.
Cape Town – West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has implored Marko Arnautovic to work harder for the team because he believes in the playmaker’s ability to produce more. There were flashes of real talent against West Ham, but there were also a string of silly fouls in the first half that made a yellow nearly inevitable in the second half.
“When I was a player I made a lot of mistakes”.
“Harry is one of the best strikers in the world and that is confirmation”, Pochettino said of Kane’s inclusion on the list.
West Ham were given a lifeline by Javier Hernandez’s header and Spurs’ edginess was compounded when Serge Aurier was sent off for two yellow cards.
