Arguably the Premier League’s most consistent side at this moment, having secured the most wins and points since the start of the 2015/16 season, Tottenham have nevertheless struggled against the Hammers recently, having lost three of their last four visits to West Ham.
Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday.
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino believes team bonding off the pitch is just as important as work on it. “Genius”, said smirking Burnley manager Sean Dyche, while Swansea boss Paul Clement admitted drawing up a “very specific plan”. The battle between Davies or Son and Zabaleta seems one-sided, and you’d expect newcomer Serge Aurier, who has settled well in English football, to get the better of Aaron Cresswell, who is impressive technically but lacks the Ivorian’s sheer speed. But in the Premier League championship, the “spurs” began their campaign, perhaps in the worst way, in the last couple of seasons. “It’s a London derby and it’s very hostile, so we have to be ready for it and I feel we are”.
Additionally, the club will double the figure raised by the auction and will then donate the total amount to an appeal organised by West Ham’s Javier Hernandez and Porto’s Miguel Layun which has been called the #YoXMexico initiative.
Pochettino added: “I think the most important thing last season was that he was the player in the squad that played the most”.
“If he in time shows he is great or one of the best in the world in one position, OK that is fantastic for him”.
“He was always in a good shape for us, and that was a killer because you want him to be playing for us”.
“I respect every single opinion”. Harry Kane is up and running now and after a bit of a slow start I think Tottenham are now getting into their groove.
West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is under vast pressure already this season, with his side having started the campaign in abysmal fashion.
‘They have patterns, they have individual quality, they have pace and they are a team building up for three years now, they’re improving the team’. Yet at home the Hammers have enjoyed plenty of success, with 10 victories from 21 previous clashes.
