Tottenham vs West Ham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 18 October 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs are going after a top-four finish this season, and they made it clear in abundance with an exhilarating win over Manchester United.
In fact, such was the dominance of Jose Mouriho’s men on the Old Trafford pitch, that he could finally leave the chapter of being sacked by the United management.
Going on, this win has definitely given some momentum for the Spurs, and they will try to keep it alive at any cost.
It helps that they are pitted against the Hammers this weekend. David Moyes’s men might deliver some good performance once in a while, but keep in mind that they are a bottom-tier squad first and foremost.
In fact, they had finished just one spot above the relegation cut-off the last season, and they had ensured their safety just on the 37th match-day.
Going on, Mourinho’s men are also at home, and to further tip the scales in their favor, they have a great h2h record against this opponent.
And finally, the Hammers have also been extremely weak on the road all through 2020.
Considering these factors, expect a Tottenham win this Sunday.
