Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has shared his score prediction ahead of tomorrow’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United.
Tottenham have lost two of their last 19 top-flight home games with West Ham (W10, D7) and will be looking to stop the Hammers from aiming to complete a Premier League double over them for the third time.
Owen believes that Tottenham’s form in recent weeks makes them hard to predict but did herald the impact which Harry Kane has had in recent weeks but does not think it will be enough to take all three points and will instead have to settle for a point.
The fixture could go a long way to deciding who will finish in the top four with both sides in contention to secure the remaining Champions League place along with fellow London rivals Arsenal.
Owen told BetVictor: “I never know what to expect from Spurs. I thought they were disappointing in the defeat at Old Trafford, but they responded well and won at Brighton on Wednesday. One constant has been the form of Harry Kane, he’s been excellent recently.
“That win over Villa was big for West Ham. Top four is probably beyond them now, but a top six finish would still be a brilliant season for them. That win over Sevilla on Thursday was exceptional, what a moment for Yarmolenko. The atmosphere was fantastic, so they should be in good spirits here.
“These two are level on points, and I think that will be reflected on the pitch. I’m going for a 1-1 draw.”
Hopefully, Owen is wrong with his prediction since a draw will do little for Tottenham’s hopes of overtaking the Gunners in the table.
West Ham will still be on a high following Thursday night’s win against Sevilla after extra time in the Europa League. Hopefully, the 30-minute period of extra-time they played will have sapped their energy ahead of their visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
