It is a London derby in the Premier League on Saturday as West Ham host Tottenham at the London Stadium. Spurs will have new manager Jose Mourinho at the helm for the first time and are set to begin with a positive result against West Ham.

West Ham Form


West Ham suffered a 3-0 defeat at Burnley in their previous Premier League fixture. It was another poor performance from the Hammers who had just four attempts on target and 0.47 expected goals.

The pressure is mounting on manager Manuel Pellegrini with the Hammers currently on a six-match winless run in the EPL. They have lost four of their last five matches, including a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace and a 3-2 loss to Newcastle, both of which came at the London Stadium.

West Ham News


West Ham will be without captain Mark Noble who limped off in the first half against Burnley. Andriy Yarmolenko is likely to return to the team having started on the bench at Turf Moor while Sebastian Haller is set to lead the line as he looks to add to his four goals this season.

Tottenham Form


Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Sheffield United in their last Premier League outing. Son Heung-Min got the only goal for Spurs who had five shots and target and 1.51 expected goals.

Mauricio Pochettino was sacked after Spurs struggles in the League this season. They are 14th on the table and will be looking for an upturn in results with new manager Jose Mourinho in charge. Having won 4-0 and 5-0 against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League, they will be hoping to carry that form into the Premier League.

Spurs have battled defensive problems this season and are without a clean sheet in their last seven Premier League matches.

Tottenham News


Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min have been the driving force for Spurs this season and should feature in attack. Defender Jan Vertonghen remains sidelined with a muscle problem while goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is also out with an elbow injury.

West Ham vs Tottenham Head to Head


Tottenham have a 50-41 advantage with 25 draws from 116 previous matches against West Ham. Spurs have also won two of the last three meetings and claimed a 3-1 victory on their last visit to the London Stadium with Son Heung-Min scoring a brace.

West Ham vs Tottenham Match Up


Andriy Yarmolenko and Sebastian Haller are the biggest goal threats for West Ham with both men combining for seven goals this season. They should combine to trouble a Tottenham defence that has been far from convincing this season.

Spurs will look to Harry Kane to provide the spark in attack and add to his six goals this season. Son Heung-Min has also scored five goals in his last six matches and bagged a brace at the London Stadium last season.
