West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspur – Match Preview

FA Premier League, Olympic Stadium, London 8pm

 

Tottenham will continue their pursuit of Chelsea at the top of the table this Friday night. Spurs will visit the Olympic Stadium to face a West Ham side who have been unimaginative and dull as of late. The Hammers have had a mediocre season by their standards having drawn their last three matches against Sunderland, Everton and Stoke. Tottenham on the other hand, have won their last nine Premier League matches on the bounce making them a force to be reckoned with at the business end of the season.

The last time these two met earlier in the season, it was quite the spectacle. Two very late Harry Kane goals saw the North Londoners steal all three points in a match West Ham had been leading for most of the match.

West Ham’s record signing, Andre Ayew, has been at the spearhead of the Hammers’ attack in the past few matches. His work-rate and flair often makes him a headache for defences, will he be creating more headaches for Mauricio Pochettino’s men?
