THE TEAM NEWS

WEST HAM

  • West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is under serious pressure to improve results after picking up just two points from their last six matches.
  • Skipper Mark Noble was forced off with an ankle sprain in the 3-0 loss to Burnley and is a doubt to play so Yarmolenko may return.
  • Pellegrini may consider further changes to find a formula that works and it would be no surprise if there were further changes in personnel.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Roberto; Fredericks, Diop, Balbuena, Cresswell; Noble, Rice; Snodgrass, Pablo Fornals, Felipe Anderson; Haller

Unavailable: Fabianski (Injured), Lanzini (Injured)

Doubtful: Antonio (Injured), Wilshere (Injured), Noble (Injured), Reid (Injured)

TOTTENHAM

  • Spurs have stolen all the headlines this week following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino and the swift appointment of Jose Mourinho.
  • It remains to seen how Mourinho will line up but it would be no surprise to see the likes of Eriksen, Rose and Alderweireld brought back in.
  • Vertonghen and Lamela are both edging back to fitness and could return to the squad but they are unlikely to be risked if not 100% fit.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Gazzaniga; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose; Winks, Sissoko; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane

Unavailable: Lloris (Injured), Lamela (Injured)

Doubtful: Vertonghen (Injured), Ndombele (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The surprise sacking of Pochettino and subsequent appointment of Mourinho has added a totally new dimension to this game. The change may well spark a response from the Spurs players which does not bode well for a struggling West Ham side although it should make for an entertaining and open game.
