  • Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Spurs have another game at their new stadium on Saturday lunch time against local rivals West Ham United.  Spurs come into the game on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat against Man City last time out and they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways before their Champions League Semi-Final on Tuesday.

West Ham have been in a comfort zone in their last few games but their performance against Leicester last time out was much better even if they did concede a late goal to draw 2-2. The Hammers have a poor recent away record and they haven’t recorded a win on the road away from home since 27th December.

This game could be tricky for Spurs in the way that they approach it. They need the win to continue their quest for Champions league football next season, but they’ll also need to be wary of picking up any big injuries before their big game on Tuesday.

Team News

Spurs will be without Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko who are still out with injuries.

West Ham are still without a host of players such as Andy Carroll, Winston Reid and Manuel Lanzini.

Potential Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI: Lloris, Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Winks, Eriksen, Moura, Son Llorente

Potential West Ham Starting XI: Fabianski, Zabaleta, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Rice, Antonio, Noble, Snodgrass, Anderson, Arnautovic

Key Stats & Facts 

  • West Ham have failed to win their last 8 league away matches.

Betting Odds

  • Spurs 4/9
  • Draw 9/2
  • West Ham 69/10

The Verdict

This could be a bit of an odd game for both sides. Spurs will need the win but might be inclined to rest players for the game on Tuesday which makes it a bit trickier to make a prediction on the match. West Ham are pretty much safe in the league and they have little to play for besides bragging rights in this match.  Spurs have plenty of quality and they are yet to concede a goal in their new stadium. They are 8/5 to win to nil against a West Ham side who have scored just 1 goal in their last 4 away games.

In his last game at home Spurs Forward, Lucas Moura, bagged himself a Hattrick and I think he could find himself on the scoresheet again at the weekend. Moura has the pace and skill to trouble West Ham and he is 7/4 (SpreadEx) to score at any time during the game. The Brazillian has 10 goals this season in 29 appearances and should be in line to start on Saturday.

West Ham’s recent away games have only seen on contain over 2.5 goals and I think there could be value in the Spurs and under 2.5 goals at 17/5 (SportingBet). In their recent away defeats the Hammers haven’t been disgraced and I think this combined with Spurs possibly being conservative if they have a lead will help to get this punt close.

Recommended Bets

  • 1pt – Spurs to win to Nil 8/5 (Bet365)
  • 1pt – Moura to score at any time 7/4 (SpreadEX)
  • 1pt – Spurs to win and under 2.5 goals 17/5 (SpreadEX)
