Tottenham vs West Ham: Team news, match facts and prediction

KEY POINTS

  • Tottenham could win three consecutive Premier League games against West Ham for the first time since a run of five between March 2008 and December 2009

  • Tottenham are on a seven-match unbeaten run in all competitions, winning five and drawing two

  • West Ham could win three consecutive Premier League games without conceding for the first time since February 2014.

  • The Hammers have lost 104 London derby matches in the Premier League, more than any other side

Both Tottenham and West Ham will be looking to keep up their recent good form when they meet this afternoon’s London derby.

West Ham looked in dire straits after losing their first two EPL games of the season but have bounced back with terrific wins over Wolves and Leicester.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are flying after thumping Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford and would be on a run of three straight wins were it not for a controversial late VAR penalty in their previous game against Newcastle.

Tottenham have been flying in front of goal but Harry Kane’s fitness issues will be a concern and West Ham’s form gives them reason for optimism.

TEAM NEWS

Gareth Bale will probably make his first Tottenham appearance since 2013.

Fellow new signing Carlos Vinicius will be on the bench, but Eric Dier is a fitness doubt and Giovani Lo Celso and Japhet Tanganga miss out.

Ryan Fredericks and Arthur Masuaku are expected to be fit and involved.
