There are a couple of injury problems that the North Londoners will have to deal with. One of them is fullback Serge Aurier who may not prove fit enough in time for Thursday. But the defender is close to being fit and is expected back in contention for Sunday.

The other players are Giovani Lo Celso and Reguilon. The Spaniard could return within a week’s time, but this derby may be just out of reach for him. As for the Argentine, he is expected to be out another two weeks.

What makes this match a real challenge for Spurs is the stellar form that West Ham are showing at the moment.

They currently sit in fifth place and are just four points behind second-placed Manchester United.

Last weekend, the visitors suffered a comprehensive defeat at the hands of league leading Manchester City, but they must put that past them. Jose Mourinho is a master at motivating his players and he must ensure that they are willing to put up a fight this weekend.

Spurs are capable of finding that extra gear as they have the players to do just that. Any team that has Heung-min Son and Harry Kane will be confident of getting the three points.

Tottenham must start winning in the league as their rivals are now leaving them trailing behind. It will not be an easy game as they are coming up against a team that is organised and solid both in attack and defence.
