Following their 4-1 capitulation at Manchester City, Tottenham have won three games on the bounce, and now they face London-rivals West Ham United at Wembley Stadium on Thursday evening.
Spurs, following their 2-0 win at Swansea City on Monday, find themselves in the fifth spot with 40 points. They are three points outside the top-four but have a game in hand on fourth-placed Liverpool.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side would be looking to put another three points on the board against the Hammers – who stand to get one less day of recovery following their late 2-1 home win over West Bromwich on Tuesday.
On the back of their win over the Baggies, the Hammers have climbed out of the drop zone and occupy the 16th spot with 21 points. The East Londoners sit just a point out of the bottom three, but they have registered some important results since David Moyes has taken reins of the club.
In December, the Hammers picked up points against Chelsea and Arsenal, and we expect them to give a tough fight to Spurs. However, we are backing the hosts to emerge victorious in the end.
Earlier this season, Spurs claimed a 3-2 league win at London Stadium, but the Hammers managed to oust Spurs from League Cup with the same scoreline in October.
