Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United have differing objectives as they clash in the English Premier League on Tuesday night. Spurs are being tipped to brush aside a poor Hammers outfit at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham Form & News
Tottenham Hotspur still have a chance of qualifying for Europe next season, but their form must improve. José Mourinho’s charges were less than impressive before the lockdown break.
Spurs were knocked out of the FA Cup at home by Norwich on penalties after the tie ended 1-1. Tottenham then drew 1-1 at Burnley in the Premier League and were bundled out of UEFA Champions League by RB Leipzig.
Tottenham's return after the break ended in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in London. Steven Bergwijn gave the hosts the lead, but Spurs conceded a late spot kick.
Versatile defender Japhet Tanganga and centre back Juan Foyth are injured. Midfielder Dele Alli returns from a ban and he could replace Erik Lamela.
Forward Lucas Moura missed the Manchester United match and is doubtful.
West Ham Form & News
West Ham are far from safe this campaign, with relegation a real concern. Boss David Moyes came in for Manuel Pellegrini in December 2019, but has done little to convince the Hammers faithful.
The Hammers had a nasty fixture list before the lockdown break, losing at defending champions Manchester City, champions-elect Liverpool, and mid-table outfit Arsenal. Despite those defeats, they did manage a 3-1 home victory over Southampton, with Jarrod Bowen, Sebastien Haller and Michail Antonio all scoring.
West Ham resumed their campaign with a 2-0 home loss against Wolves. They had 42% of the possession and could only muster 0.44 expected goals from seven shots.
Centre back Angelo Ogbonna, full backs Pablo Zabaleta, Arthur Masuaku and striker Sebastien Haller and all missed the defeat to Wolves and are doubtful.
Winger Robert Snodgrass is another player that could miss out.
