Tottenham face a London derby against West Ham this evening just four days after securing a dramatic aggregate win over Lyon in Europe.
Moussa Dembele’s stunning 90th-minute strike at the Stade de Gerland on Thursday evening set Spurs up for a tantalising clash with Inter Milan in the last 16 of the Europa League, but before they take on the Italians, Dembele and company must switch their focus to the battle for a top-four spot in the Premier League.
The match with their east London rivals at Upton Park is one they should be winning as West Ham have won only once in eight games, while Tottenham are in the midst of a ten-game unbeaten run in the league.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side are 23/20 favourites to claim the three points, although the Hammers are only slighter longer priced at 12/5, while 11/5 on the draw completes bwin’s 3-way betting market.
Before you have a flutter on the clash, take a look at these five statistics we’ve produced from the archives.
3: The number of times both West Ham and Spurs have been involved in matches with over 2.5 goals in the first half this season. A very short 1/10 is available on under 2.5 goals in the opening half.
3: The number of times Kevin Nolan has struck the opening goal of a game, which is half of his Premier League total of six goals. The West Ham skipper is priced at 8/1 to make it four on Monday.
4: Out of six games following their performances in the Europa League this season, Tottenham have won four, including a 3-1 victory over the Irons days after drawing with Lazio in November. You can find 15/1 on Spurs repeating that scoreline.
9: The number of games since the Hammers scored more than once against Tottenham, having not managed this since 2007, when they were beaten 4-3. Bwin is offering 7/4 on West Ham to score over 1.5 goals.
57: The average time in away matches when Tottenham have conceded and with West Ham only scoring ten times in the first half of their 13 home games, 3/5 on the Hammers failing to score in the opening 45 minutes looks a sound bet.
