What Trueform says for West Ham vs Tottenham
Tottenham haven’t been overly-convincing of late and West Ham have enjoyed a decent record against their London rivals in recent years.
The Hammers beat Spurs in the EFL Cup last season and drew at Wembley in the Premier League in January, following home wins in this competition in 2016 and 2017.
We reckon Evens for Manuel Pellegrini’s team to avoid defeat this weekend is the way to go with our initial West Ham vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham suffered a setback when going down 1-0 at Brighton before the international break, but that was a much more entertaining contest than the scoreline suggests.
Glenn Murray’s 25th-minute strike ultimately proved decisive, but the Hammers created some good chances and Marko Arnautovic and Fabian Balbuena should have done better with opportunities to equalise.
Declan Rice and Felipe Anderson again impressed in midfield, with Pellegrini stating: “I am frustrated because I think we did the things to win the game.
“We had three clear chances to score and didn’t. They had one chance in the first half and then defended. We deserved more.”
West Ham had previously beaten Everton and Manchester United either side of a draw against Chelsea, as well as putting eight goals past Macclesfield in the EFL Cup.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Diop, Masuaku, Felipe Anderson, Obiang, Noble, Rice, Arnautovic, Yarmolenko.
Marko Arnautovic is fit, despite returning early from international duty with Austria due to an ongoing knee injury.
Left-back Arthur Masuaku also came back early with an injury after linking up with DR Congo, but he too should be available.
Striker Javier Hernandez could return to the squad after missing the last five games with a virus but Winston Reid, Carlos Sanchez, Manuel Lanzini (all knee), Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere (both ankle) are still out.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham are just two points off the top of the table after making it six wins from eight league games when edging out Cardiff 1-0 at Wembley.
However, that was a lethargic performance from Spurs against a struggling team reduced to 10 men before the hour mark.
Mauricio Pochettino commented: “I’m happy to finish with 18 points going into the international break, but we need to improve a lot.”
Tottenham have been hit with some injury problems of late, while a tough Champions League group is proving a distraction.
Wednesday’s trip to PSV Eindhoven is vitally important and could play on their minds at London Stadium.
Let’s finish off our West Ham vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 7/1 for a 1-1 stalemate.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Rose, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Winks, Dier, Sissoko, Lucas Moura, Son, Kane.
Tottenham will be able to welcome Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele back.
Eriksen has missed the last four games with an abdominal injury, while Dembele has been struggling with a thigh problem.
Dele Alli (hamstring), Danny Rose (groin) and Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) all continue to miss out.
