Spurs’ Under 23 side face West Ham United on Monday evening (the game starts at 19:00pm) at their Rush Green training ground. Wayne Burnett’s Spurs side won their most recent Premier League 2 match 3-1 at home to Leicester City, last month. Spurs are currently in sixth place in the Premier League 2 Division One league standings, while West Ham are in second place in the league, having picked up 39 points from 21 matches. West Ham were impressive in the reverse fixture, when they won 4-3, but that was a close game of football, which either side could have won. West Ham are a good team however, and with players such as Ajibola Alese, Daniel Chesters and Sonny Perkins all players who could potentially start against Spurs tomorrow, this London derby match will be a difficult one for Wayne Burnett’s side. However, it will be interesting to see whether the three Academy players (Jamie Bowden, Dane Scarlett and Harvey White) who made the bench for the Spurs first team against Newcastle United on Sunday, will be involved on Monday for the Spurs Under 23 side. This should be a good game of football, and one that would like to wish the Spurs team all the very best of luck for.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lo-Tutala, Paskotši, Fagan-Walcott, Omole, Lavinier, Bowden, White (c), Bennett, Devine, Mundle, Scarlett.
Subs from: Oluwayemi, Muir, Cesay, Santiago, Robson.
Previous meeting: Spurs 3-4.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: Daniel Chesters. The very direct West Ham United winger has scored two Premier League 2 goals and provided four assists so far this season for West Ham’s Under 23 side. Chesters was very impressive in the reverse fixture against Spurs last October, and he is a player who has already played for West Ham’s first team this season.
