West Ham United Team News, Starting XI Prediction vs Tottenham

Share

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United meet again on Sunday in a London derby where the reverse fixture was truly epic. Back in October, Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham side raced out to a 3-0 lead, scoring their trifecta within the first 16 minutes.

Cruising towards what seemed like an easy three points, they held a clean sheet until the 82’ of the game, when West Ham’s Fabian Balbuena got the Irons on the board.

Then a Davinson Sanchez own goal put the Hammers within one at the 85.’ An extra time equalizer was provided by Manuel Lanzini on the very last kick of the game.

Mourinho and Spurs had dropped two points in stoppage time, having to settle for a 3-3 draw. 

Could we have entertainment and drama at that level once again?

There is a lot at stake here, as these are two of several sides with legitimate designs on a top four finish.

David Moyes could have central forward Michail Antonio, suffering from fatigue, back match fit for this one. Fabian Balbuena faces a late fitness test, as it’s thought he’ll recover from a calf strain in time to feature here.

However, this match could come too soon for stellar Italian defender back Angelo Ogbonna (ankle sprain) and Andriy Yarmolenko (knee issue).
