Tottenham Hotspur

Injuries remain an issue for Pochettino’s side as they prepare for this weekend match. Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko are all still out.

This means there’s not many options for Spurs to do any kind of rotation this weekend. Spurs can expect a strong display from Son Heung-Min as he won’t be available for their Champions League first leg tie.

West Ham United

Pellegrini also has injury concerns ahead of this weekend tie with important names are unavailable. Yarmolenko, Andy Carroll, Winston Reid and Carlos Sanchez remained sidelined.

There’s also concerns regarding Nasri, Cresswell, Hernandez and Lanzini’s conditions. This means, Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic will be West Ham’s main key players for them.

Match Prediction

Playing in front of their home crowd will give that positive advantage for Spurs. Still yet to secure their top four seat, Pochettino’s side will be pushing for all three points.

West Ham themselves are also keen on getting a victory as they want to end their recent bad results. Tottenham will be favorite to win, but they must remain cautious over The Hammers’ threat.
