class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>This London derby has provided plenty of goals over the last couple of seasons and our tipster is backing another high-scoring encounter this weekend
West Ham welcome Tottenham to the London Stadium on Sunday in a Premier League derby with plenty at stake.
Spurs’ recent poor run has seen them drop to ninth in the table, six points behind their rivals from the east of the capital, and another defeat this weekend would pile more pressure on Jose Mourinho and his side.
West Ham vs Tottenham Latest Odds
By contrast, David Moyes’ men have won six of their last eight Premier League games – a run which has put them firmly in the hunt for a Europa League place.
The hosts are offered at 13/8 (2.63) with bet365 to claim three points, with Spurs available at 17/10 (2.70) and the draw at 12/5 (3.40).
West Ham vs Tottenham Team News
Spurs are still missing Serge Aurier and Giovani Lo Celso, although Sergio Reguilon is nearing a return from his muscle problem that has kept him out for over a month and could be involved in some capacity.
Angelo Ogbonna, Andriy Yarmolenko and Arthur Masuaku are out for the Hammers, whilst Michail Antonio could return from a thigh injury.
West Ham vs Tottenham Preview
The last meeting of these two rivals came back in October when the Hammers scored three times in the last eight minutes to claim a famous 3-3 draw in north London.
Since then, the two teams have enjoyed diverging fortunes with Spurs sinking like a stone and West Ham embarking upon one of their best top-flight runs in recent years.
However, a 4-1 win against Wolfsberger in the Europa League on Thursday night may have restored some confidence to Mourinho’s men, and at the very least they should be able to contribute to a high-scoring game this weekend.
The last derby produced six goals, while Spurs’ previous two trips to the London Stadium have seen them win 3-2 and 3-1 respectively.
West Ham vs Tottenham Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is available at 6/5 (2.20) which looks like an excellent price for what is usually an open and entertaining fixture.
