Another week in the Premier League and another London derby on the cards. Friday night sees north head to east as Spurs aim to pick up all the points against local rivals West Ham at the London Stadium. Despite Spurs being clear favourites for the match and the Hammers being overwhelming underdogs, this one isn't as easy as the odds suggest. These clashes have been tighter than an ant's backside and we don't expect this one to be any different as Friday night football returns to our screens!
West Ham vs. Tottenham Hotspur, okay, it may not have the intensity of the Hammers against Millwall or Spurs tackling Arsenal – as they did last week – in a North London derby, but this fixture means a lot, and there's always, always, drama!
Spurs fans will remember Paul Stalteri's late winner against the Hammers ten years ago at Upton Park in a crazy 3-4 win for the north Londoners, whilst West Ham have that Lasagne-gate victory which denied Spurs qualification to the Champions League back in May 2006.
There will be goals – we can assure you of that – there hasn't been a 0-0 in any of the last 11 meetings.
For the hosts, there will be no better feeling than putting a spanner in the works for Spurs’ title bid and we fancy them to make it very difficult for Mauricio Pochettino’s side at the London Stadium.
You may remember the Hammers came close to winning at White Hart Lane earlier in the season before a late capitulation resulted in Spurs turning things round on home turf to pick up a vital three points.
What We Sayin’?
Harry Kane loves a London derby, which is reason enough to back him to find the net again as he aims to come out of the season with the Golden Boot to show for his efforts.
However, we’re opting for something that is slightly less obvious than Kane scoring, and that’s a 1-1 scoreline in east London at 15/2.
