Spurs v West Ham: (match preview)
Venue: White Hart Lane
Date: Saturday 19th November 17:30 pm
Live: BT Sport 1
Referee: Mike Dean
Head2Heads: 1-0 West Ham, 4-1 Spurs, 2_2, 1-0 Spurs, 2-0 West Ham.
Saturday sees Spurs return to action following a two week international break, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side face West Ham united in a London Derby at the Lane. The lads will be eager to return to winnings ways, with the Lillywhites without a win in their last seven matches in all competitions. The Hammers are also out of form, Slaven Bilić’a side have recorded just 11 points from 11 league matches this season. However, despite their poor form the Hammers pose a significant threat and will provide tough opposition, with players like Dmitri Payet, Michail Antonio and Andre Ayew at their disposal. We may have quite a few injuries at the moment but I have a feeling that Spurs will produce a very good performance this evening, were long overdue a big win and there’s no better place for it than under the lights at the lane with the players being buoyed on by an electric atmosphere.

Team news: Toby Alderweireld, Erik Lamela and Ben Davies will all miss this evenings match through injury, whilst Mousa Dembele, Vincent Janssen, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose are all doubts.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lloris, Walker, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Dembele, Son, Alli, Eriksen, Kane.
My score prediction 3-1 to Spurs courtesy of goals from Harry Kane x2 and Mousa Dembele.
One to watch: The Hammers midfield magician Dmitri Payet.
