Tottenham Hotspur will look to get back to winning ways later today when they take on London rivals West Ham in this round of midweek Premier League fixtures. Here’s when the game takes place, and how you can follow the action.
After three straight defeats and a spate of injuries to the squad, nobody gave Ange Postecoglou‘s side a chance against Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend. However, the team battled valiantly and secured a point away from home in a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Goals from Heung-min Son, Giovani Lo Celso, and Dejan Kulusevski helped Spurs stop the rot and spoil the party for Pep Guardiola’s men. But, with the Lilywhites now out of the top four, they will be looking for three points when they take on the Hammers this week.
West Ham go into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace. David Moyes’ side led at half-time but were pegged back early in the second half.

Tottenham and West Ham team news
The big news for Tottenham is that key player Cristian Romero will be available for selection once more after serving his three-match suspension, and it’s expected he will return to the Spurs defence immediately.

That means it is likely Emerson Royal will be dropped to the bench, with Romero partnering Ben Davies at the heart of the Tottenham defence. Postecoglou also revealed that Pape Sarr will be fit enough to play on Sunday, but this evening will likely come too early for him (Football London).
The likes of James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, Rodrigo Bentancur, Manor Solomon, Ivan Perisic, and Ryan Sessegnon are all still injured for the foreseeable future.
For the Hammers, there is a chance Kurt Zouma will return to the side this week. However, Michail Antonio is expected to remain out of action until next week due to a knee injury.
The Spurs Web prediction
After the result and performance against City, I fancy us to really be up for this game and get a positive result. With Romero back, I think we can keep a clean sheet, and for that reason, I’ll go for a 2-0 Spurs win.
