West Ham vs Tottenham - Premier League preview and team news

West Ham United will be hoping to avoid a fifth consecutive Premier League defeat when in-form London rivals Tottenham visit Upton Park.

There is a little unrest surrounding the home side at present, with some West Ham supporters calling for the dismissal of Sam Allardyce, who has had a difficult season. On 37 points, the club looks safe, but they would perhaps like one more just to be certain of their Premier League status, with poor showings in defeats to Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion suggesting that the squad could be in need of an overhaul.

Three wins in four games has lightened the mood around Tottenham, with their first away win for two months coming impressively at Stoke City last time out and giving them belief that they could catch Everton for fifth. They now come up against a side that has already beaten them twice this season, including in Tim Sherwood’s first match in charge. Indeed, if reports are to be believed, he could only have one more after this.

Joey O’Brien could return for West Ham after recovering from a dislocated shoulder, meaning Marco Borriello is the only injury absentee.

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend is out and will miss the World Cup with England. Kyle Walker and Erik Lamela are also unavailable but Mousa Dembele could come back into midfield.
