West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur – betting tips and predictions

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has hailed Tottenham as the most attractive team in the Premier League ahead of their clash on Saturday at the London Stadium. Anyone looking for a riskier play could take Tottenham -1, I think Spurs will cover the handicap.

Cheikhou Kouyate reduced West Ham's deficit further with three minutes remaining but Tottenham held on to extend their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions.

Slaven Bilic is under increasing pressure as the West Ham boss, his team lie in 17th in the league table just above the drop zone but with back to back home games the Hammer's fans will be hoping for a couple of big performances.

Tottenham travel to the London Stadium on Saturday to face West Ham, against whom Dier made his debut three years ago and scored the victor in a 1-0 victory.

West Ham have got the better of Spurs in this fixture for the last two seasons running and Carroll could be key to them pulling off another derby victory.

Carroll made an entrance he would prefer to forget, giving the ball away near halfway and allowing Eriksen to start the move that led to Kane's 34th-minute opener.

MF Dele Alli, 8 - Beaten to a near-post header when West Ham pulled their first goal back, he nonetheless set up both of Kane's strikes, sending in a cross from the right side and then having a shot saved by Joe Hart, with the rebound falling to his teammate. Spurs - though they don't get to put it in practice often enough - are one of the most proficient counter attacking sides in the top flight.

Can Harry Kane continue his impressive London derby scoring record when Tottenham face West Ham? Who proceeded to rip us apart whenever he felt like it.

It required Hugo Lloris to make a late save from Aaron Cresswell and a misguided header from Carroll to halt the Hammers' unlikely revival and throw Tottenham fans into loud relief.

Gold also includes an extensive selection of shoulder programming such as Premier League News, Premier League Today and NBC Sports originals such as Premier League Download and much more.

The odds on West Ham completing a great comeback shortened when Kouyate headed in, however a late melee in the closing seconds sucked the impetus out of West Ham. The challenge for Mauricio Pochettino and his players will be finding a way to beat these highly motivated sides. I'd prefer to see him deployed at left-back with a winger to support him than this wing-back nonsense, but he looks relatively good defensively and a threat going forwards.
