THE TEAM NEWS

TOTTENHAM

  • Spurs earned a point at home to Man Utd on Friday night as they drew 1-1 but were somewhat relieved after a second penalty for United was awarded only to see it correctly cancelled by VAR.
  • Jose Mourinho can count on Dele Alli for this match after his suspension and he should come into the line-up while there could be further changes to freshen the side up with Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Lo Celso and Gedson Fernandes all candidates to come into the side.
  • Vertonghen and Vorm have agreed short-term extensions to see them through until the end of the season now so there is a chance that the Belgian defender could at least feature here or in the upcoming matches.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Winks, Lo Celso; Bergwijn, Alli, Son; Kane

Unavailable: Parrott (Injured), Tanganga (Injured), Foyth (Injured)

Doubtful:

WEST HAM

  • West Ham slipped to defeat in their opening match since the restart against Wolves as two second-half goals left them empty-handed and they remain just above the relegation zone now on goal difference.
  • David Moyes will have taken some positives from that game but knows his side must improve quickly based on that display as they make the short trip to face a Spurs side that have had one more day of rest than them.
  • Changes could well be on the cards following that loss as Moyes will want to keep his side fresh so Yarmolenko, Masuaku and Lanzini could come into the midfield to change the wide areas around.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Balbuena, Cresswell; Yarmolenko, Noble, Rice, Masuaku; Lanzini; Antonio

Unavailable: Ogbonna (Injured), Snodgrass (Injured), Zabaleta (Injured)

Doubtful: Haller (Injured), Masuaku (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

West Ham’s performance at home to Wolves in the first round back was arguably one of the poorer displays and David Moyes will be seeking a reaction from his players here. They make the short trip to face Spurs whose manager Jose Mourinho will have been relatively pleased with his team’s performance against Man Utd. They applied their game plan well for a large part of the game and it almost paid off, but they will need to take a different approach here. They will take the game to West Ham and with the firepower they have, they should be able to eventually unlock a weakened defence that is missing Ogbonna.
