Here’s a look at the Tottenham vs West Ham team news, Tottenham vs West Ham  details and our Tottenham vs West Ham prediction ahead of the clash.

Tottenham vs West Ham: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last time these two met on the pitch, the Spurs recorded a 2-0 win. Do note that this game had taken place just three months back.
  • They had also won four of the former five clashes.
  • They had scored two or more goals in five of the previous eight encounters.
  • In the past two decades, only four times have Jose’s men lost at home.

Tottenham vs West Ham: Prediction

Both sides come into the game on a high from their previous results, with West Ham’s impressive 3-0 win over Leicester and Spurs’ 6-1 demolition over Manchester United. Spurs will feel they have the edge over their fellow Londoners however, especially if Bale is able to make an appearance as reports suggest. Bale’s influence will give a whole boost to the team mentally and physically, and a goal on his White Hart Lane return is written in the stars, surely? Even without Bale, the front three of Moura, Kane and Son have already amassed 10 goals between them and West Ham have only managed one win from their previous six encounters with Tottenham, so it’s difficult to look past a home win, albeit not by much.

Tottenham vs West Ham:Team news

Gareth Bale is expected to make his second debut for Spurs, although likely from the bench. Harry Kane will start with new signing Vinicius on the bench, but Eric Dier is a doubt and Giovani Lo Celso and Japhet Tanganga miss out.

West Ham have no fresh injury worries. Ryan Fredericks remains a doubt with a hamstring injury.
