Tottenham Hotspur welcome West Ham United to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a crucial Premier League fixture that could have serious Ramifications in the top-four finish race on Sunday evening with kickoff at 17:00.
Tottenham marched to a comfortable 2-0 win against a struggling Brighton side in their midweek fixture, with Cristian Romero opening the scoring before Harry Kane sealed the three points for the Lilywhites in the 57th minute. The goal for Kane saw him become the player to score the most number of goals on away soil in the Premier League’s history, surpassing former record holder legend Wayne Rooney.
The win extended Tottenham’s inconsistent run that has seen them alternate defeats and victories in their last seven matches across all competitions. On the positive note, the win saw Antonio Conte’s side move to seventh with just three points within the fourth-placed Arsenal, although the Gunners have played one match less.
They will now be hoping to make it back-to-back victories in the Premier League as they look to break into or stay in touch with the top-four. A win on Sunday will see them leapfrog both West Ham and Man United something they will be aiming for.
Meanwhile West Ham United are coming off historic result on Thursday night as they claimed a 2-0 victory over Sevilla at London Stadium in the second leg of their Europa League last 16 tie. The victory saw the Hammers overturn their 1-0 deficit from first leg and qualified for the quarter-finals on a 2-1 aggregate. Once again an emotional Andriy Yarmolenko was on the scoresheet netting the winning goal for his side.
Back to the Premier League the Hammers were coming off a hard 2-1 win against Aston Villa ending their three match losing streak across all competitions. The win over Villa means that they have now lost one of their last six Premier League matches and currently sit fifth level on 48 points with their Sunday hosts Tottenham, although they have played one match more than their London rivals.
They sit two points behind Man United and three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal who have played two matches less, making them underdogs to Arsenal, Man United and Tottenham in the race for the top-four.
The win against Sevilla was a massive confidence booster and David Moyes will hope that his men will draw carry on their performance in the clash as they aim at staying in touch with the Champions League race.
