West Ham vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).
The Hammers will be hosting the Spurs for this much-awaited clash. We witnessed West Ham manage to redeem themselves before the international break in a 3 match unbeaten run. However, they were beaten by Brighton 1-0 before heading into the break.
They will be at home against a stronger side and will surely have to do all it takes to get something from this game. Pellegrini’s men have been struggling to get goals and have only netted 8 goals in the 8 played games. They have failed to score in their last three or their last 5 games.
According to me, this home game is a great chance for the Hammers to redeem themselves and prove that they are willing to mend their weaknesses and move up the table.
Tottenham is enjoying three consecutive wins which they obtained before heading into the international break. They are closely gaining into the top of the standings and are currently closing the top 5 list at position 5 with 18 points. This is just one spot below the Gunners with a 1 goal difference.
Evidently, Harry Kane looked a little worn-out before the international break. However, he must be rejuvenated after the break and will be on duty in this away matchup.

- These two sides met in January this year and only settled for a 1-1 draw.

- In the last 5 h2h meetings, both teams have equally measured up to the tasks by winning twice.
- Only one draw has been recorded in the last 5 meetings.
West Ham vs Tottenham: Prediction
West Ham will look forward to impressing their home fans in this matchup. Nevertheless, they are in it against a more focused and brutal force which may not give them a chance to shine at home. Perhaps, they can step up to match the strength of their opponents with at least a goal. An outright win for them may be a miracle.
They will definitely be coming into this game to win. From the look of things, the Spurs are determined and are aiming to finish inside the top four once more this season. This game will not be an easy one for them but high chances are that they will scoop the 3 points here.
